The Best Thing I've Heard All Week...

I just got an urgent call from Whipcreamy.

She is going to a Barak Obama book signing on Sunday.
As some of you may recall, he was featured in an installment of "Delicious as an Enchirito?". Hands down, he was awarded a definite YES. We love him. He is cute and charming and articulate and should be our president.

The crux of the phone call: how to ask barak obama to sign a book "i am delicious as an enchirito".

i am serious. i love it. i laughed and laughed and then replied with an ernest "i have NO idea." whipcreamy certainly would ask him but she wonders if he would say no in fear that this could come out and hurt his political career--what with a black politician telling a white girl that he is delicious. the folks in tennessee fell for that fear placed in ads this past election, after all. so whip wondered: well, maybe i should explain that we talk about taco bell and politics and we really love you and we have this thing called "delicious as an enchirito" and you know, ben harper made the cut too. then she fears that he will think she and her fellow white girl friends are just blogging it up about cute african american men and enchiritos and that's an unlikely comparison but maybe that also would not do well for his political career. and if she went on to say, well george clooney and jeff tweedy are also involved then it might turn into a ramble. especially because barak and jeff have met and jeff is a BIG fan of barak obama. in fact, i've been to a show in which people yelled OBAMA/TWEEDY 08!! and if erin goes on and on about this, people in line are going to get angry--even though they are liberals and love peace and are so happy about being in the same building as Barak.

So can she ask him to sign a book as such? and if so, how? aren't we to hope he is above the political bull?

what is the limit for what politicians can sign in books? how much humbling must they allow? these are some of the most poignant questions. i am sure whipcreamy will add equally forceful ones to the comment section.

interesting quandary indeed. perhaps he doesn't need to write that since it is fact. whip can write that part in herself and nobody gets in trouble. example:


Barak Obama

(Delicious as an Enchirito)

oh like maybe :

Barak Obama *

*delicious as an enchirito

hmmm. but i think whip wants him to know, understandably, that he's as delicious as an enchirito because that is a very big compliment. and much better than the run of the mill "i think you are wonderful for our country and i hope your optimism and intellect and liberalism mark a turning point in our country's history because, as you know, we are desparately in need of such encouragement. p.s. please run for prez."

I think you should ask him to write it and give him a shirt that says "I like beavers".

...that beaver shirt story in on of the blogs made me laugh for a long time.

In seriousness, we wouldn't want to get Barak in any kind of trouble so maybe you could just tell him he is as delicious as an enchirito (since it is such an honor) but not make him write it....oooohhhh...maybe you could ask him if he likes taco bell and get him to write Barak loves Taco Bell...unless that would get him in trouble too. Poor Barak. He is so wonderful, all the other candiates are going to find any possible way to make him look bad.

he is SO wonderful! i think the beaver shirt would be great. let's see how he does with a lot of weirdness thrown at him. that will get him ready to run for prez, right?

michelle, your ideas are really good. i seriously think you should start your own blog. whipcreamy just told me the same thing.

While this may be boring, I suggest Whipcreamy explains the blog and the feature: "Delicious as an Enchirito" to Barack. I think he will laugh and happily sign the book:

Dear Whipcreamy,
Thanks for the news that I am delicious as an enchirito.

With the audacity of hope--
Barack Obama

very nice!! what every person wants in a would be president: their ability to have the words whipcreamy and delicious in the same sentence.

I think whipcreamy could have Barak sign an actual enchirito with his favorite sauce.

So Whipcreamy and TBellLove,
What happened with Barak?

whipcreamy didn't know she needed tickets to see him so she didn't get to bring her book for him to sign and ask him about enchiritos, etc. however, she did get a signed book so it wasn't a complete loss.
