Yesterday, Obama ate breakfast at the Glider Diner in Scranton, PA. The lanky Obama couldn’t finish the meal, leaving behind half a sausage and a little less than half a waffle. So why is this news? Because an enterprising employee or customer snagged the plate and put it up for auction on ebay. (Note: The ebay link is now invalid, and the item has been removed. However, bidding was as high as $76 by 12 PM this afternoon). Photo of Obama’s partially eaten meal below:
The auctioner described the item as such:
THIS IS BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S BREAKFAST FROM THIS MORNING, 4-21-08 AT THE GLIDER DINER IN SCRANTON, PA. WINNER GETS HIS USED DINER PLATE WITH HIS USED SILVERWARE AND UN EATEN PORTION OF HIS WAFFLE & SAUSAGE LINK. IT WAS WRAPPED WITH SARAN WRAP IMMEDIATELY AFTER HIS DEPARTURE AND IS NOW IN THE FREEZER AWAITING THE LUCKY WINNERS BID!!! THIS IS 100% AUTHENTIC AS YOU CAN SEE HE WAS AT THE DINER BY THE PICTURE AND IT WAS ON ALL LOCAL NEWS STATIONS. THIS PLATE WAS WRAPPED BY THE WAITRESS THAT SERVED HIM. GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC, HIS DNA IS ON THE SILVERWARE. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT!!!! HAHA
Barack “Hussein” Obama? Me thinks this auctioneer is perhaps a bit prejudiced against Obama. But wait….he says he’s not:
****One more UPDATE!!!!**** In NO WAY does the use of Barak Obama’s middle name designate being prejudice. It is his middle name and was being used for descriptive comments only.
Phew, well that’s reassuring. But what about those weird comments about his DNA being on the silverware?
The DNA comment may have not been used in the best content either, I apologize if either of these 2 things offend anyone, especially his campaign, they shouldn’t. THANKS AGAIN!!
Phew. Again, we may have dodged a bullet. For a minute I was afraid this would be auctioned off to a mad scientist looking to either clone Obama or make a freakish parahuman hybrid that would gallop across the land and come to be known only as an Obama-taur.
I wish I could say this type of thing is a new phenomenon, but it was just a few months ago we heard about the man who has held onto the half-eaten sandwich of Richard Nixon for over 40 years.
