News, but not the serious kind

Who’s that screaming at Window Two?

October 24, 2008

Blog Guy, I’m just a regular dude selling strawberry shortcake down here in Florida. I have a recurring nightmare that one day a presidential candidate will just stick his big grinning face right through my window.

That would push me over the edge, for sure. What are the actual chances of this kind of a strawberry shortcake window political intrusion?

You can forget about it. The odds are a billion to one. It hasn’t happened since 1964.

If you say so, then I’ll return to my strawberry job,  but I’m scared. Who was the candidate in ’64?

A Republican named “Berry” Goldwater.

Well Orincarnia – They were registered to vote, but then got a notice saying that we are not Citizens, and had until Oct 9th to prove otherwise – notice postmarked Oct 9th…hmm.
