Brits assign Obama ‘smart alec’ codename

From the Daily Mail:

More than one person has wanted to call Barack Obama a 'smart alec', and now British police will get the chance to do so without getting reprimanded.

That's because Scotland Yard has tapped the codename 'Chalaque' to refer to the U.S. president for security reasons during his upcoming state visit to the United Kingdom May 24-26.

Indarjit Singh, a Punjabi speaker in the UK who is director of the Network of Sikh Organisations, told the Sunday Times the word 'is sometimes used when we want to denigrate someone who we think is too clever for their own good'.

Another Punjabi speaker told the paper the word Chalaque is 'not considered rude', but could be 'mildly offensive'.

I can't wait to hear the mainstream media spin this one as pure coincidence...
