Question of the day

Wednesday, Jun 11, 2014

* I’m having some serious Comcast internet problems today, so blogging could be spotty. I never did find an entertaining photo of the governor’s bill-signing ceremony yesterday at a Harley dealership, so we’ll go with the cupcake girl…

* The Question: Caption?

    PQ: *turns around* “Where?”

    *little girl runs away*


  9. - A guy... - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:12 pm:

    Next question, Brooke?


  10. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:13 pm:

    “Sen. Trotter is eating one too!”


  11. - Responsa - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:13 pm:

    You shouldn’t have messed with me.


  12. - A guy... - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:13 pm:

    “That guy just stole one!”


  13. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:14 pm:

    “Look, it the ‘Carhartt’ Limited Edition Harley…”


  14. - OneMan - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:19 pm:

    Why is that man referring to my cupcakes as ‘cheddar’


  15. - Jake From Elwood - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:21 pm:

    “Local girl shows more direction than Governor”


  16. - Almost the Weekend - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:23 pm:

    Girl: Can I get one of those stuff animals?

    PQ: That right there is Squeezy the Pension Python. As a small business owner, you will no longer have to worry about the tremendous pension bill payment looming over your shoulder when you are looking to hire full-time and part-time employees, or expand your business into neighboring St. Clair County. However, I do recommend you pay your part-time and full-time employees a liveable wage. That’s why I Pat Quinn, governor of Illinois, am pushing the legislation to increase the minimum wage to $10.10.


  17. - Cupcake - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:23 pm:

    Maybe this could serve as a second photo caption today?

  18. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:26 pm:

    “Little girl, have you seen all of my Southern Illinois supporters anywhere?”

    “Yes, Mr. Governor. I think it’s that guy over there.”


  19. - Steve - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:26 pm:

    Pat Quinn: “Michelle Obama weighs more than me also, little girl.”


  20. - Robert the Bruce - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:27 pm:

    “Governor, thank you, but I no longer need the law. I’m rich! That guy with the cheap watch just bought my cupcake company for a cool million!”


  21. - OneMan - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:28 pm:

    Did you pay for that?


  22. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:28 pm:

    “I gave your advance person an extra plate of cupcakes, Governor. I’ve seen your refrigerator.”


  23. - Res Melius - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:29 pm:

    Look - another windmill!


  24. - OneMan - Wednesday, Jun 11, 14 @ 1:33 pm:

    A continuation from yesterday….

    Brook realized, if he always had a cupcake in his mouth he couldn’t talk and the less he talked the easier her job would be. Yeah, there would be some downsides, like weight gain and having to keep a bazzilion of the things around. But they had enough money to just pay the girl to make them all day long…

    Also if she had some for the press at each stop, they would eat them, they love free food and wouldn’t be able to ask questions…

    It was brilliant….

    (That is why I suspected the picture she tweeted and one in his mouth)
