Congratulations to Millicent Owour of south-west Kenya, who's just given birth to a pair of bouncing baby boys. Their names? Barack Obama and Mitt Romney...

The twins were born close to the village of Kogelo, the ancestral home of the other Barack Obama - who, as you may have heard, has just been re-elected to the White House. The US president's step-grandmother Sarah Obama still lives in the area.

According to Reuters, several babies who were born at the hospital yesterday were named after Barack Obama. But only one has a brother called Mitt Romney.

Never mind, kid. It could have been worse. You could have ended up being called Donald Trump.

And now, before the defeated Republican candidate finally disappears from the public consciousness forever - fingers crossed, eh? - let's have a look at some of our favourite Mitt Romney spoofs...
