U.S.A.!

Saturday morning I got up early to meet a few friends for a delicious greasy breakfast. One of my friends, Mikey, had some very exciting news for us – he is becoming an American citizen! Finally, after living here for years he has decided that he will grace the good ole U.S. of A. with his tax revenue.

Of course, this is very exciting, but before Andrea and I could give our approval we had to find out who he planned to vote for in his very first presidential election. Andrea and I our staunch liberals and we couldn’t allow another McCain crazy out on the streets!

Sure, I know what you’re thinking: Could I really stop him from registering to vote. And the answer is of course, don’t be stupid. As I was saying before you so rudely interrupted me is at the news of Mike’s new citizenship we had to find out who he was planning on voting for. His answer? “Palin, of course! I vote for BOOBIES!”

We tried to reason with him. Believe me, we did, but we obviously made the bad decision of trying to talk to him at breakfast because he was much too distracted by his hash browns. All he would say over and over is, “Why wouldn’t I vote for boobies? What other issue could possibly trump boobies?”

We just shook our heads and pointed out to him that Sarah probably didn’t even WANT him to be a citizen – she’d probably take his citizenship back if she could and ship him over to Russia. He really didn’t have a problem with that. We pointed out that she was probably angry with him for taking American’s jobs. Once again he said whatever…BOOBIES!

But I’ve had a couple days to think about it and I think this conversation is proof that he will make a very good American and who am I to try and stop that by kidnapping him and holding him hostage until it’s too late for him to register? Plus, I am really looking forward to the U.S.A! U.S.A.! party to celebrate his citizenship where we will get to dress up as our favorite American stereotypes and eat lots of really greasy and fatty foods.

I would love to say something witty but I can't stop thinking about hash browns and boobies.

I'm pretty sure that Boobies was the answer to all the questions on his citizenship test. I mean, isn't that the answer for everything?

a USA party sounds pretty freakin awesome. I always want to wear Red and Blue together, but then I feel like an american flag. I wish every day was a USA party!

Yay for a USA party! That's so exciting. Time for red, white and blue cupcakes.

And here, I was going to vote for her because she has such great taste in lipstick! Damn. Kidding...

But have fun at that party! Don't forget the Krispy Kreme--that is uniquely American grease right there.

rs27 - I'm not surprised, there hasn't been much in the news about it.

Narm - That's understandable. In the future I'll try to refrain as much as I can from boobie talk.

Dingo - I'm sure you're right. We Americans love our Boobies.

Maxie - Don't wait for somebody to plan a party. You should bring the U.S.A. party with you everywhere you go!

Bayjb - Genius. mikey considers himself an excellent baker I'll make sure he makes patriotic cupcakes.

Thespottedottoman - Of course! Krispy Kremes. Krispy Kremes and doritos are really all we need.

bloodredroses - I know! Any excuse to eat greasy foods is a good excuse.

A red white and blue party, full of stereotypes? I wish my friends were becoming citizens too!

He presents a damn good argument.

Look, with the election the way that it is (and believe me, I've been an Obama supporter) boobies are as good a reason as any to vote. I'm totally put-off by both candidates right now!
