    “Yum…pass the ketchup!”


  2. - Big Joe - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 2:54 pm:

    I really can’t comment. The picture says so much. Anything that I would say would get me banned from this blog.


  3. - Cable Line Beer Gardener - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 2:55 pm:

    Maybe if I eat the whole thing I will finally grow into my tunic.


  4. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 2:55 pm:

    Jak się masz?,governor.


  5. - Sick & Tired - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 2:56 pm:

    Mmm, the taste of underpaid work.


  6. - Huh? - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 2:57 pm:

    OMG, I can’t believe he’s eating that thing! Nobody has ever been so gullible to take a bite.


  7. - Grand Avenue - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 2:58 pm:

    My guy Dan Pogorzelski giving the Governor the death stare!


  8. - Huh? - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:01 pm:

    1.4% - What did I get myself into? This thing tastes like a pair of old gym socks. How am I ever going to chew and swallow this bite. Note to self, never eat something I don’t recognize.


  9. - PolskiMan - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:01 pm:

    He ELIMINATED funding for immigrant services and we will probably be forced to lay off half of our staff, maybe even close completely. 100 years of service down the drain. But on the bright side he did stop by and buy 2 dozen! What a great guy!!


  10. - Rogue Roni - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:05 pm:

    Let ME eat cake!


  11. - A guy - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:05 pm:

    It’s also Mountain Oyster Day. The Gov made a very good choice.


  12. - Nick Name - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:09 pm:

    “Governor, remember that one scene in The Help?”


  13. - Ducky LaMoore - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:17 pm:

    I’m totally watching Van Wilder tonight.

    No………..Go away. You guys can’t have any. It’s MINE.

    Those jeans come with the suit?


  18. - AlfondoGonz - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:25 pm:

    In a rare missed fashion opportunity, Governor Bruce Rauner panders Paczki Day without rummaging for his traditional Polish hat, also known as a kłapica.


  19. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:29 pm:

    “This is really, really…interesting. And you know what?,
    ‘ck’ got me a new leash, see?


  20. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:31 pm:

    You made this one with the changes I asked for? Gee thanks, but it still doesn’t taste quite right. The SGOPs are gonna vote present on the Paczki bill.

    Maybe if you added some sprinkles. Or made it vanilla. But I don’t want to interfere with your ethnic traditions or anything.


  21. - JustMe - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:33 pm:

    Let them eat Paczki’s


  22. - @MisterJayEm - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:33 pm:

    Letting others else watch as he eats the entire thing — or as Bruce Rauner calls it “sharing“.

    “This thing has more filling than my budget details do!”

    Look at this snake I found hanging from my arm. This cupcake is great!


  25. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:39 pm:

    Slurp…. This is LOTS easier than doing my job to get my mandated balanced budget figured out and actually done. I ain’t got enough SuperStarts yet & Munger et al, Sue and Diana’s Chief of Staff are no help. Gosh, this is yummy.


  26. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:39 pm:

    Oh, this? This is what I use to yank Leader Radogno’s chain. As you can see, today it’s yellow.

  29. - Whatever - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:45 pm:

    Is “bite me” trademarked on this blog?


  30. - Cimry90 - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:46 pm:

    Hope nobody sees the puppet string used by Mr. Griffith to control me.

  32. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:47 pm:

    “Wow, these are not what I expected at all! You can barely taste the kielbasa!”


  33. - A Jack - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:52 pm:

    “Well if it tastes like a donut, it must be a donut. Just like if I say my budget is balanced…..”


  34. - DE - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:56 pm:

    I’d give a year’s salary not to do this again…….Governor’s salary, not investment income.


  35. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:59 pm:

    Through the Looking Glass…

    “Eat Me”… “Drink Me”


  36. - OurMagician - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:59 pm:

    Nero may have had his fiddle, but Rauner has his Paczki’s.


  37. - JoanP - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 3:59 pm:

    “I’m still not finding an ‘n’ in here.”


  38. - W Flag - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:04 pm:

    “Hey folks, enjoy Fat Tuesday because everyday in Illinois is Ash Wednesday from now on! Dress in sack cloth and gnash your teeth!”


  39. - Huh? - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:08 pm:

    I’m going to give up AFSCME for lent.


  40. - Huh? - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:12 pm:

    This reminds me of the ash Wednesday after I was elected governor, I gave up governing for lent and have never felt better.


  41. - A Parent - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:12 pm:

    “Is this how regular people are eatin’ these?”


  42. - Henry Francis - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:16 pm:

    How many plutocrats does it take to eat a Paczki?


  43. - Anon - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:17 pm:

    “Mmm…. strawberry. Get that apple one out of my sight.”


  44. - A Parent - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:18 pm:

    Huh? 4:12 It’s pronounced governin’. You must be one of those liberal elitists I’ve been hearin’ about. You and your fancy “ing’s”


  45. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:21 pm:

    Needs fava beans and Chianti, Clarice.


  46. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:33 pm:

    This is better than the crow I’ll have to eat later.


  47. - Smitty Irving - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 4:46 pm:

    His hair looks thinner. Exactly WHAT is in that Paczki?


  48. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 5:06 pm:

    If Trump pretended to respect Polish people and they voted for him maybe I can eat a paczki and they will vote for me. I’m a genius!


  49. - Mittuns - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 5:21 pm:

    Dunkin and the donuts he controls.


  50. - Jocko - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 5:22 pm:

    Did Bruce lose a ton of weight in the past year? If not, please tell Diana to take him to Men’s Warehouse and pick up a nice sports coat.


  51. - Mittuns - Tuesday, Feb 28, 17 @ 5:22 pm:

    Wait a minute, this isn’t custard-filled.
