Well, it’s Sunday, and it’s time to announce the winner of the caption contest, and for another Weekly Question of the Week*!
(* title does not intend to suggest weekly appearance)
First was the caption contest, which I probably ruined by telling the back story of Muschi and Mauschen – the cat and bear who were best friends at the Berlin zoo, sticking by each other through everything until Mauschen passed away and Muschi the cat was inconsolable and I’m sorry, I have something in my eye…
Anyway, what was I saying? Something rugged and masculine, I believe. I think it was about chainsaws.
Well, regardless, it’s time to announce the winner of the caption contest. It was a close one, bouncing between the various finalists. But please congratulate Life With The Top Down for her winning entry! Life with The Top Down, you’re my featured blogger, which comes with a trip to Berlin (no expenses paid), where you’ll get to pick up Muschi the cat and give him a good home, and maybe buy him a bear.
Next up, is this week’s question. Now, I know we’ve all enjoyed watching the manifestation of Mitt Romney’s new, revitalized campaign strategy this week; even if you’re planning to vote for him, you have to admit that in a world of soundbites and Youtube, Romney stepped in an elephant-sized pile of it this last week.
In fact, I think I speak for everyone when I say that I can’t wait to see what he has to say next, preferably after a bad night’s sleep, while constipated, and having just gotten a sliver under the fingernail – really prime the pump to let the anger fly! Why? Because an edgy politician who doesn’t know people are listening is not only an honest politician, he’s a hilarious politician!
But what will he say? That’s the exciting part! I realize we’re never going to get a good, old-fashioned Ross Perot level of crazy, or a Sara Palin level of ignorance – but Romney showed he can produce the goods if he’s under enough pressure. So… what would you love to hear Romney say next?
Maybe say that he thinks old people smell weird? Maybe say he doesn’t support marriage of two men but he can go for two women getting together, and then wink? What about saying that we should use the poor as a source of organs for the more productive, important members of society?
Now’s your chance to predict the future, or maybe even influence the direction of his campaign!
