Odd Blog gets political scoops…

May 15, 2008

ice-cream-charles-140.jpgBlog Guy, I’m the reader who collects pictures of rich people eating ice cream. You really helped me out with that shot of Warren Buffett and a popsicle. I’m expanding my collection to include prominent leaders eating ice cream, and I wonder if you have anything to contribute. 

I was able to come up with shots of the two Democratic presidential candidates eating ice cream. Moreover, they reflect diversity. It turns out Hillary Clinton is a cup person, while Barack Obama is a cone guy.

I was less successful with McCain, who seems happy to just look at ice cream.  And then there’s Britain’s Prince Charles, who appears about to shove ice cream up his nose.  That might be a whole new area for expanding your collection, no?

Politicians will eat anything in order to get votes.

I could never vote for anyone who eats vanilla ice cream. Good thing I’m a Republican.

I’ll have what she’s having. It’s denial flavor? Huh; I would have sworn it was vanilla.

Obama to McCain, “You gonna eat that?
McCain to vendor, “I want all 31. That should about cover it.”
Hilary to the crowd, “Mfff. Mrfmmf.”
