The Urban Dictionary word of the day on November 5, 2008, was "Obama baby," a child conceived during an act of celebratory sex on the night of President Obama's electoral victory. It was theorized that if such sex was widespread enough, there would be something of a baby boom nine months later. But the time for that has passed without any discernible surge — even in Chicago! "Births are now predominantly planned and not very responsive to good news," explains Donald Bogue, a University of Chicago demographer and sociologist. Which is a good thing for the continuation of the human race, we guess, in Times Like These. [Chicago Tribune]
