  12. - Norseman - Friday, Feb 14, 14 @ 11:46 am:

    P.S. I just become aware of an urban definition for pigeon-hole. That is not my meaning. I was referring to the idea that Judy trapped him. Rich, feel free to delete.

    After planting a very lady-like Karate chop on the Mayor’s back, Illinois’ own Emma Peel grabs his hand and briefly smiles for the cameras before flinging him over her head.

    (Yeah, she apologized afterwards and help him up.)

    By the way, had not seen the nickname “Badbinka” for JBT before.

    This “Sopranos” maniac says, perfect!


  78. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 14, 14 @ 4:06 pm:

    ===had not seen the nickname “Badbinka” for JBT before===

    She used it in radio ads during her first run for treasurer. The candidate with the funny name. Judy Badabinka.


  79. - Yipperdo - Friday, Feb 14, 14 @ 4:12 pm:

    Da Mayor Congratulates JBT on being slated by the Cook County Democratic Party


  80. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 14, 14 @ 4:13 pm:

    Badabinka is a cool cat. She represents our neighborhood very, very well.


  81. - Upon Further Review - Friday, Feb 14, 14 @ 4:14 pm:

    Translating “Topinka” is funny too! In Bohemian or Czech cuisine, it usually served as an appetizer. It is a type of bread served with toasted garlic spread.


  82. - Just The Way It Is One - Friday, Feb 14, 14 @ 4:17 pm:

    “Rahm: Oh, JUdy, JUdy, JuUdy–you just make an average guy like me feel like Cary Grant! Why don’t ya just think about changin’ Parties already, Cream Puff, and BE my runnin’ mate for the White House some day down the road–WHATdya say, huh?!

    Judy: I say, DREAM ON, Little Guy! For one, I’M a RePUBlican–period. And run for VP with YOU? HA! Just who says I won’t try for the Big Job mySELF some day, eh?! Don’t be countin’ your Chickens ’till they’re hatched, buddy!”


  83. - dupage dan - Friday, Feb 14, 14 @ 4:27 pm:

    So, UFR, we could, in reality say, “Oh, Judy, you’re so cute we could eat you up” and not be far from the truth?

    It’s true, in a respectfully, political way - Judy Barr, you da garlic spread on our zwieback!
