A Chicken Concept

Somewhere in China....some Chinese guy started up a Obama Fried Chicken shop.

It's an odd idea....if you ask me.  I'm guessing there will be a big rush the first week....with folks just checking out the place.  The key here....is the recipe.  If this is a lousy Chinese recipe with cheap chicken, then the place will dissolve within 100 days.  However, the guy might be smart enough to have a decent mix for the chicken.

If business starts to pick up....he'll have an ad campaign.  My suggestion is...find some tall Chinese guy and dress him up like the President and then hand out American dollar coupons for 10 percent off on the next meal.  Folks might pick up on this idea and make the trip out to the shop.

Long-term?  Well....it's hard to envision this guy starting a nation-wide chain of OFC (Obama Fried Chicken).   Two hundred OFC's around China by 2013?  Well....stranger things have happened.

The curious thing here is that neither Bush or Clinton ever had any business enterprise named after them.  I'm guessing that GW is sitting there at the ranch....gazing over the picture of the OFC place, and wondering why he never got a BFC (Bush's Fried Chicken) named after himself.  Laura will finally get all peppered up about his comments and then remind him that this chicken joint business isn't exactly an honor....and then he'll realize she might be right (for the millionth time).  

A Lesson on Political Plumbing?

"When you sit in the bathtub, and the water level in the toilet does rise, it’s a pretty good indication that you probably ought to cut the second dessert."

-- PBS's Mark Shields talking about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie

I'm from Bama originally....so I sat and pondered over this statement.  I've seen Mr Shields on numerous occasions with the Inside Washington show.  Frankly, he's like your Uncle Bob....who hasn't been off the front porch for forty-four years and his advice tends to lack any common sense.

The statement here...looking at tub water and toilet water, and having some relationship between the two....is a bit difficult to grasp.  Course, maybe this is some Marylandism or some Vermontism....and the locals all have a laugh over toilet water equaling tub water....maybe.

I'm guessing Mr Shields has saddled up with the idea that America needs a slim-Jim type character in the White House.  So the emphasis here is that you ought to vote for only slim guys....because they make the best presidents.  If that makes sense....then we'd best not vote for bald guys, wheelchair folks, gimpy gals, guys with tattoos on their arms, or guys who only wear $99 suits.  If this is the game-plan, then I'd suggest we toss out any idiot who doesn't know anything about business or failed economic plans as well.  There's about 300 more type folks that we ought to put on Mr Shield's list as well.

In the end, we might just end up with only one candidate to vote for, and this will make it pretty easy to vote.
