PQ- “so i met this woman on the beach here yesterday, she talked me into going with her to the favela where she lives. next thing I know -I had a guy sticking a gun in my face.. She was quite the temptress. I lost my lucky tie, so that was a bummer. Otherwise it was quite the adventure.”
“As I was saying, Brazilian travelers should come to Illinois for an authentic experience. We’ve got two great things in Illinois…Chicago and uh, and uh, everything else.”

This is the gang sign we flash whenever two members of the “Insane Democrats” meet on the street. If you don’t flash the same sign back, we assume you’re a member of the “Impotent Republicans” trespassing on our turf and we cap you!
Quinn: “Whatever anybody else is offering you to come to their state, I’ll offer you twice - dos - as much.”
Brazilian (through interpreter): “That’s nice, but “dos” is Spanish, and here in Brazil we speak Portuguese, which would be “dois.”
Quinn: “Hey, that’s great. I never had any geese on my porch, but I would be glad to speak to them if they came, as long as they weren’t retirees or AFSCME members. I hope these porch geese you speak to aren’t carrying signs. And the one named Dois, what does his name mean in English?”
Brazilian (whispered through clenched teeth to interpreter): “Get me out of this”.
Quinn: Soooo…thanks for winning the 2016 Olympics. Man, was that going to be a boondoggle. Illinois and Chicago are broke already. And that’s with a tax hike. Manomanoman, think about how much debt the state would have to take on to deliver an Olympic games that are up to snuff.
Brazilian guy: Bem, nós estamos começando um período de dois para um negócio. Nós temos a Copa do Mundo em 2014 e depois os Jogos Olímpicos em 2016. É claro, nós realmente não sabíamos o que estávamos começando. Ele está nos custando muito dinheiro, e tudo o que estamos fazendo é alguns estádios e Reabilitação Adicionando algumas novas linhas de ônibus de trânsito rápido.
Quinn: Oh, yeah, bus rapid transit. Yeah, they were going to try that in Chicago, but they decided to build bike lanes instead. Whats the copa do mundo? Is that like the Copacabana? Have you ever been to the Copa? It’s great. And have you ever heard that song, “The girl from eep-uh-…-nama?” I love that song, they used to play it at the Copa. By the way, I like your tie. You should think purple, though.
The translator is obviously confused as Quinn–who was trying to form his fist into a Figa as a greeting (gosh only knows why)–gets confused and instead issues a Vulcan salute, quickly followed by a few smacking, tweaking, and slapping gestures ala the Three Stooges which included a self-inflicted double-cheek slap, nose tweak, and forehead slap.
This photo caught the Governor just as he was preparing to poke himself in the eyes, but was thankfully stopped by his own security team who wrestled him to the ground before, ummm…”someone” got hurt.
As governor i was thinking of replacing the middle finger salute with this-what do you think? It’s kind of a combination of the middle finger and two L’s for IL but maybe a little to close to looking like a V for victory. What do you mean I babble too much?
Quinn: Nope. Nope. I’m pretty sure the Samba originated at the annual Carnaval in Madison, Wisconsin, and that those craaaaazy Republicans are to blame…um, I mean credit for it…um blame? You see, George Bush….
