The Evening Quote

Notable humorist and magical panties enthusiast Willard 2.0 shares an amusing anecdote from his family history:

“One of most humorous [stories] I think relates to my father. You may remember my father, George Romney, was president of an automobile company called American Motors … They had a factory in Michigan, and they had a factory in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and another one in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,” said Romney. “And as the president of the company he decided to close the factory in Michigan and move all the production to Wisconsin. Now later he decided to run for governor of Michigan and so you can imagine that having closed the factory and moved all the production to Wisconsin was a very sensitive issue to him, for his campaign.”

Romney said he recalled a parade in which the school band marching with his father’s campaign only knew the Wisconsin fight song, not the Michigan song.

“So every time they would start playing ‘On Wisconsin, on Wisconsin,’ my dad’s political people would jump up and down and try to get them to stop, because they didn’t want people in Michigan to be reminded that my dad had moved production to Wisconsin,” said Romney, laughing.

That’s so funny, Willard, you madcap raconteur! Oh, it just must have had all of the other swells at the club in stitches, simply in stitches! I bet Bunny Bixler wetted herself, didn’t she, when she heard that old chestnut, eh?

There’s nothing like how the misfortune of others–that you caused by laying them off–is inadvertently funny when it gets in the way of your plans to pursue oligarchy. Oh, you scamp, tell us another story!

  1. I liked what Mittie’s cousin had to say the other day about Mormonism – that it’s a fraud. I wish there had been more attention paid to Park, Romney. I discussed this very issue with my husband, Pond.

  2. Y’know, I honestly can’t figure out how you guys think Pope Frothy I is so goddamn’ funny just because he’s obviously batshit, when Mittens — who’s supposed to be doing such a great job of not appearing to be batshit — provides a much higher cheap laffs bang-for-the-buck with these straight-faced, irony-free, totally deadpanned off-scale Tourette’s blurts.
