Question of the day

Wednesday, Jun 30, 2010

* The setup

With her world famous greeting “Hello Pineapples!” and loving heart bigger than her hair, it’s impossible to imagine Chicago without Miss Foozie®. A famed personality and household name in the city’s LGBT community and beyond, she’s consistently voted “Best Female Impersonator”, including nods from the publications Chicago Free Press and New City. She has big plans for expansion and is embarking on a journey to win more hearts across the country.

* The pic…

* The Question: Caption?

Keep it clean, please. I mean it. Don’t test me.

  18. - washedmyhands - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 12:34 pm:

    That is a cute picture…bet Ms. F. is thinking about the movies….like “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”


  19. - Wumpus - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 12:34 pm:

    The only way Foozie coul dwin is if Alexi was her only competition! What is the criteria to be a successful impersonator? Shouldn’t one at least look womanly?


  20. - Moving to Oklahoma - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 12:35 pm:

    Alexi poses with Ricky Hendon, whose fashion sense has gotten more extreme over the years.


  21. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 12:46 pm:

    Big Alexi Don’t Cry - Valli, enhanced by VanillaMan

    Big Alexi don’t cry)
    (Big Alexi don’t cry)

    Big Alexi don’t cry-yi-yi (he won’t cry)
    So Alexi says (who said, pols don’t try?)
    “My opponent, likes to lie-yi-yi” (my, oh, my)
    Miss Foozie, wonders why.” (We all wonder why)

    (Silly boy) Told voters he had what it took
    (Silly boy) Until the Feds took a look at the book
    (Silly boy) Alexi claims he is no crook
    Big Alexi don’t cry

    Big Alexi don’t cry-yi-yi (he’d rather die)
    Big Alexi just gets sly (who said, pols aren’t sly?)

    Miss Foozie, I was cruel (I was cruel)
    Miss Foozie, I’m a fool (I’m such a fool)

    (Silly Alexi) Shame on you, the voters said
    (Silly Alexi) Shame on you, you have no cred
    (Silly Alexi) Shame on you, you should had fled
    Big Alexi don’t cry

    Big Alexi don’t cry-yi-yi (he’d rather lie)
    Instead he’ll use an alibi (that’s just an alibi)

    Big Alexi don’t cry
    Big Alexi just deny
    Big Alexi it’s only July
    Big Alexi my oh my…


  22. - Just wondering - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 12:47 pm:

    Which one is in “drag”?


  23. - Fan of the Game - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 12:51 pm:

    Alexi thought the “G” in “LGBT” stood for Giannoulias.

    (Just wondering–Why do we have female impersonators when there are so many real females in the world?)


  24. - MrJM - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:03 pm:

    From the Kirk for US Senate Campaign:

    This picture just goes to prove that every negative rumor you have heard about Congressman Mark is false.

    (Fan of the Game: it’s because we sometimes “lose our edge” and need help to keep our men confused.)


  26. - Me - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:08 pm:

    Moving to Oklahoma - You had me in tears!!!!!


  27. - MrJM - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:08 pm:

    Kirk4Senate: I “wasn’t thinking” when my campaign bio claimed I had been consistently voted “Best Female Impersonator.” I am not perfect and was careless and it will never happen again.

    – MrJM


  28. - siriusly - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:11 pm:

    Eager to tout his first Republican endorsement, State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulis today released this photo with State Representative Suzanne Bassi.


  29. - Jake from Elwood - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:15 pm:

    Alexi is modeling a Hartmarx grey flannel suit, an American flag lapel pin and a cheezy grin.
    Miss Foozie is modeling what appears to be a tablecloth along with faux beads and an adam’s apple.
    How do you like those (pine)apples?


  30. - Responsa - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:19 pm:

    Alexi upon seeing the picture: OMG, this is what I look like when I have my forced, fake, campaign smile on? But, hey, on second thought my youthful orthodontia turned out purty good, don’t you think? Thanks Mom!


  31. - Dave Dahl - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:27 pm:

    With her world famous greeting “Hello Pineapples!” and loving heart bigger than her hair, it’s impossible to imagine Chicago without Miss Foozie®. She poses with Alexi Giannoulias (right), Illinois State Treasurer and Democratic candidate for U. S. Senate.


  32. - LincolnLounger - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:36 pm:

    She’s no Dame Edna. He’s no Paul Simon.


  33. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 1:54 pm:

    Judy Baar Topinka shares a laugh with Alexi Giannoulias following the announcement of a new support group for former Illinois treasurers to ease their transition back to civilian life. (Not pictured: Pat Quinn)

    One of these two is a complete fake.


  40. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 3:59 pm:

    Miss Foozie (left)–though obviously tickled by the “faux” pearls US Senate Candidate Alexi Giannoulias (right) gave her–says she still plans to vote for Stufflebeam.


  41. - Ronbo - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 4:13 pm:

    I’m Alexi Giannoulias and I approved this message!

    Lost episode of the “Locator”
    She ain’t heavy …she’s my brother….


  44. - D.P. Gumby - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 4:32 pm:

    Having listened to the Senators at the Kagan Confirmation Hearings, the Queen in Drag would be the best person to send to those clowns.

  55. - Indeedy - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 8:24 pm:

    Divine? No, alas, not possible but if it was, if he had the ability to make it so, I’d put Alexi in charge of everything and every one ;-)

    Lady GaGa after a long night of hearty-partying in Chicago poses with an unidentified person when the bar-keep announces “last call!”

    Is Miss Foozie a real registered trademark? Wow…why!?


  58. - Patrick McDonough - Wednesday, Jun 30, 10 @ 10:39 pm:

    And Mayor Daley has Ron, so what is your point? :)

    If she was black…I would be Steadman?


  61. - HatShopGirl - Thursday, Jul 1, 10 @ 3:29 am:

    Patrick, what does that have to do with anything? Ron is judged by how well he performs his job as schools chief. Are you dissatissfied with that? Then criticize that, not who he is.


  62. - Verdicto - Thursday, Jul 1, 10 @ 8:21 am:

    Do Ask, Do Tell


  63. - HatShopGirl - Thursday, Jul 1, 10 @ 12:40 pm:

    Verdicto, that’s what got Clinton in trouble. He was asked and he told - kinda-sorta, depends on what your definition of ‘is’ is. All Clinton had to say is that it was a private matter. I draw the line at the sexualization and exploitation of children. Children have a special right, the right to be protected from predators.
