It All Comes Back to Food
Whenever I ponder something political, scientific or downright intellectual… it all comes back to food.
A first grader I know is my kindred spirit in this. Yesterday evening I was leaving his house and he said, “I know that Obama is going to win.”
“Oh yeah?” I said. “How come?”
“‘Cause yesterday I was at a store and there were two boxes of lollipops: one with donkeys and one with elephants. And all of the donkey lollipops were gone. That’s how I know.”
(Some online sleuthing concluded that he must have been referring to Jacques Torres Chocolate‘s political lollipops: McCain Lime, Orange Obama, “Mac is Back!” Macadamia and “Barack the Vote” Ground Caramel.)
Between lollipops and bake sales, Election 2008 was really all about the food. And smart kids that realized it.
