Roscoe’s House of WHAT, Mr. President?
Hey Blog Guy, a couple of days ago you illustrated your piece on high-cholesterol foods with a lot of photos of President Barack Obama with junk food, and you said, “If I want to know what foods I should avoid…I’ll just follow the presidential motorcade.” You were just joking, right?
Maybe, maybe not. That item ran on Monday, so let’s see where the Obama motorcade would have taken us on that very day.
Uh-oh. That can’t be good.
Yeah, let’s just say when Obama is on the road, you seldom find him stopping at Slappy’s House of Cauliflower and Tofu.
But gosh, nutritional information about healthful food is readily available. Do you think Obama is getting the message?
Yes, I think he is. Unlike those earlier photos I used, we don’t see any actual food in today’s pictures. We just see the bags of chicken wings. I guess Obama has discovered that carry-out is better for his image.
In this top photo it looks like Obama is hailing a taxi. Doesn’t the Secret Service drive him around?
Of course they do. I guess he’s just flagging down one of those popular Los Angeles pie trucks….
