Could this be Obama's Kenyan birthcertificate? (someone is smoking catnip)
Probably some kid's photoshop program ^ | KOS troll

Posted on 07/28/2009 9:23:04 AM PDT by DoctorJimbo27

I wasn't sure if i wanted to post this, but here goes. I've been holding onto this for a bit now, cause if it's real I don't know if I could get in trouble.

I voted for McCain last year (by default, I wanted huckabee) because I knew Nobama would be a disaster, but i wasn't sold on the citizenship thing. on a whim, I asked a firend in the UK to see if she could find any old records from back when Kenya was a british colony. Well a few days later she emailed me this.

it looks real to me, but I'm not sure. And I havent been able to get a hold of my friend since she sent it to me. If this is legitimate, should i be worried?

Here's the link, I don't have a website to upload it to. http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=281blzk&s=3

It was plainly typeset, commonly done when printing something that would be copied in large quantities (like newspapers) where time spent setting up proportional fonts was acceptable.

Smells like fecal matter. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

If you were a clerk in the British Empire chances are you'd take pride in your penmanship and education.

For an African in 1961, to be a clerk wasn't a nothing job, but a high status one.

You wouldn't have gotten that kind of job if your penmanship was that awful.

I buried a piece of coal in my backyard when I was a kid in hopes that it would become a diamond when I was a grown-up.

I wonder what I'd find if I went back there and dug it up?

Can you do that for me?

Proportional fonts were unreasonable for single-copy typed memos.
They were normal for mass-produced typeset documents & forms.

What’s not passing the smell test is the people he11-bent on dissing absolutely anything they come across on the subject, and doing so they look grossly ignorant in the process.

When I was a kid I buried an acorn in my back yard. Years later I went back to check on it, but a tree had grown up in the spot, so I couldn’t dig it up. :(

One odd thing about the document...the date is given as "Aug. 4th. 1961" In Britain it is usual to put the day before the month - i.e. 4th. Aug.1961.

Could be different in Kenya, though.

Busted!

The full background text, which is in Dutch, reads:

DIT IS GEEN GELDIG DOCUMENT VAN DE OVERHEID. DIT IS POLITIEKE COMMENTAAR. HIJ IS VOORZITTER VOOR MINSTENS DRIE EN EEN HALF VAN MEER JAREN. KEUR HET GOED. DIT ZAL NIET VERANDEREN.

Rough translation:

"This is not a valid government document. This is political commentary. He is President for at least three and a half more years. Get used to it, it's not going to change."

We know a real KENYAN birth certificate (that is, after Dec. 12, 1963), but issued in 2009, looks like this:

And a UK birth certificate issued in 2005 looks like this:

There are plenty of lined boxes on papers from a print shop. Especially since a typewriter wasn’t even being used on this certificate, it is handwriting. You think someone put all that stuff on it and then wrote on it? Or more than likely had a box of blank certificates and wrote on it?

Were you around in the era where you ordered blank “forms” from printshops and filled them in? This wasn’t 1861, this was 1961. We did have SOME technology that was around before computers.

“How did they print crossword puzzles in 1961?”

Don’t you know they took each individual paper, typed a line across, then took the paper out turning it sideways and typing another straight line.

Now that symbol at the top of the page would have been a doozy and taken all day!

(this was sarcasm because I expressed a similiar sentiment to the poster)

Yeah, except it’s apples and oranges. Unless you think the people who registered the births actually sat and typed this document, then wrote in the boxes?

That’s true; as I was reminded here, proportional fonts were common in typeset documents back then, but I sensed the whole “look and feel” of the form just didn’t belong to the era.
