    Bittersweet chocolate.

    It’s only good when baking or working in a recipe.

    Otherwise… it’s dull, tasteless, and useless.


  2. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:12 pm:

    “Just a late Friday tweet to remind everyone, I’m me and you’re not!” #MisplacedVanity


  3. - Norseman - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:12 pm:

    Whenever I hear someone whining about social services funding, I reach for my M & M’s. Chocolate always helps me forget.


  4. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:13 pm:

    “Maybe everyone I’m trying to destroy should sell chocolate bars to stay in existence. The one that sells the most chocolate will get partial funding”


  5. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:14 pm:

    If you zoom in, it appears the governor is … signing an email?

    And WTF is with the cake on the side table?

    Just another hard day in governin in the governor’s office.

    Hey Bruce, what’d you do at work today?
    Governor: I signed some emails and ate M&Ms and cake.

    Apparently his metabolism is the only thing higher than his hatred of unions.


  6. - wordslinger - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:15 pm:

    Gov. Rauner proposes a new funding plan for contracted social service providers, unionized state workers, higher education and capital improvements (shown at left).


  7. - 47th Ward - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:15 pm:

    That moment when you realize that all M&Ms taste the same but you still prefer the ones in your favorite color.


  8. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:16 pm:

    I think I also see a brown M&M.
    The governor’s contract explicitly and specifically says “NO BROWN M&Ms”

    Someone’s gonna lose a job on a Friday.


  9. - Northsider - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:16 pm:

    At least he was smart enough to avoid Skittles or Tic Tacs.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:16 pm:

    #FridayFeeling?

    Eastern might close next year… Chicago State too…

    Social services closing left and right…

    What a weasely way to govern… and celebrate…


  11. - 47th Ward - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:17 pm:

    Hey Lance, get rid of these. They all have “W” on them.


  12. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:18 pm:

    “Bruce has no social agenda, have some M&Ms” - Fake Diana Rauner…

    … Maybe(?)


  13. - Ole' Nelson - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:18 pm:

    Pretendin’ to eat candy like a commoner, signin’ a pretend document,and overall, just pretendin’ to act like a governor.


  14. - Earnest - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:19 pm:

    There will be no actual work on this desk until higher education and social services are completely shaken out. Then I’ll have the budget hold so deep AFSCME will fall into the financial abyss. Did I just say that? Just the sugar buzz, people. We need reforms to help the state economy grow before anything else. I care about social services. For goodness’ sake, I just spent time on facebook talking about how I help breast cancer funding. Has anyone seen my Carhartt jacket?


  15. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:20 pm:

    I think we’re all surprised to see the governor cast a reflection in the desktop.


  16. - Huh? - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:20 pm:

    I’m smiling all the way to the bank. These millions I’m spending to corrupt the down ballot elections are just pocket change to me.


  17. - AlfondoGonz - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:21 pm:

    “Governor Rauner therapeutically devours chocolates that share initials with his top adversary. It’s also why he drinks his coffee black.”


  18. - wordslinger - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:21 pm:

    “Seriously, this list of accomplishments is way hard…..little help, somebody?”


  19. - Huh? - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:24 pm:

    What rubes, I fooled them all and the GOP is my lapdog, just panting for my money.


  20. - X-prof - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:24 pm:

    Hi folks. Here’s your Friday riddle: Change the ampersand to a J and what do you get? Tee hee. Oh wait, I just ate one … ewww!


  21. - Cog - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:24 pm:

    “Michael Madigan and the alliterative candy brands he controls.”


  22. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:24 pm:

    Ummm … maybe we’d get more done if the governor’s phone was hooked up to something. This must have been the phone he used on election night.


  23. - Ole' Nelson - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:25 pm:

    “Don’the tell me I can’t have food in here, I purchased this office fair and square.”


  24. - Rich Miller - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:26 pm:

    Is his iPhone sitting on his Carhartt? Seriously. What is that?


  25. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:27 pm:

    You knew the photo was staged when you saw the governor holding a pen.

    He doesn’t sign anything.


  26. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:27 pm:

    HBO - “Dad’s Home State” Season 2, Episode 50

    Bruce sees a Social Service group trying to sell M&Ms to stay open. Bruce purposely asks for one bag, and for his change. Diana lools at the bag of M&Ms, remembers she needs to write a thank you the the Pritzkers. Diana’s State Employee has M&M stands ok’d outside all state offices. Lance tweets pictures of Bruce eating chocolate to Dem Caucus members “Sweet Success”, “ck” sends an email to M&M-Mars for a Bruce visit, stat. Goldberg writes a letter to Hershey’s. Comedy, 61 minutes.


  27. - Rich Miller - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:28 pm:

    OK, send this Bradley memo back to Grassbowl with my changes.


  28. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:29 pm:

    “Ok… then what SHOULD be acceptable for Casual Friday?”


  29. - Rich Miller - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:30 pm:

    2014 governor’s race: $36 million

    2016 legislative race: $46 million

    Screwing around on a Friday afternoon when everyone else is working? Priceless


  30. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:31 pm:

    This is exactly why if I could only choose one food to eat forever… it would be Cherry Pez…


  31. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:32 pm:

    When you’re giving out bonuses to workers for hard work and you tweet pictures showing you doing no work at all… #FridayFeeling


  32. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:33 pm:

    When your not just mailing it in at work, you’re tweeting about mailing it in for everyone to see #FridayFeeling


  33. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:34 pm:

    Because pretend work is really about the chocolate reward at the end #FridayFeeling


  34. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:35 pm:

    Because when you’re out of props, you make up a phony picture to have a prop “work” in a picture #FridayFeeling


  35. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:36 pm:

    I’ve been sittin here for two years and no one calls.


  36. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:36 pm:

    “Nah, these were left over from the ‘Madigan’ screening… “


  37. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:38 pm:

    “Gimme something to do before I pretend I like the Cubs and sit with the Ricketts tonight… “


  38. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Oct 28, 16 @ 4:38 pm:

    I pretend M&Ms are AFSCME members.
    Look, all gone.
    And my hands are clean.
