Funny maid story

I was talking with my maid today. We were talking about Mr. Obama winning the election, whether I voted for him and who she liked.
Well, she said most people that she knows, including her, are so happy that Obrahma won. No, that was not a typo!
I asked of course why she called him Obrahma...and she told me because that is how people call him here.
??? Why ??? I asked.
Ok, here's the funny part:
She said that one of the popular beers with her friends is Brahma beer. Therefore, since they like that beer so much, and since they like Obama so much, they just decided to call him Obrahma!
Funny or what? Nicknames are big here, so I guess that only makes sense here in Brasil :)
