|My family and biggest supporters.|
But here is some political humor I have ran across since entering the world of politics.
Chris and I were campaigning door to door one Saturday in 2008. He would pull in a drive and I'd jump out to go knock. As I was approaching the porch of a house I saw something familiar. My yard signs! Probably 50 of them slung way up under the porch. Hmmm...this was not the home of a supporter of mine! The people weren't home and I was flabbergasted. Yard signs are expensive. Very much so. People for meanness will steal them. Teens will for jokes. But 50? Whole new level.
Oh! How I wish I'd had a phone with a camera! For that and for this:
A year after elections, 2009, I was driving through Vonore on HWY 411. Now mind you, elections were over a year ago. Election signs were long gone. Suddenly a sign up ahead caught my eye. It looked like one of my yard signs! There was something over the middle but I could see the outer edges showing halves of lettering of which could only be my sign.
The closer I got I could see a piece of white notebook paper was stuck to middle of sing. Getting closer still I could read the words YARD SALE scrawled on the paper with an arrow pointing right. Well. At least one sign was recycled for use.
The last cute funny I can think of. A couple of years ago a friend was shopping in a local consignment store. She was flipping through a rack and there suddenly was a "Hull for Trustee" t-shirt. How funny.....
