electile dysfunction

Ah, the George W. Bush years .. wasn't that something?

Now that we can truly laugh about it - he's just days away from being out of the White House forever!! - I thought I'd share this little ray of sunshine, the chalkboard specials at the Black Sheep Cafe in Amherst, MA, October, 2004:

ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION
$6.95

The Burning Bush - JERK chicken with green chilis, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato and spicy lime vinaigrette on a baguette.

The Challahburton - Lots of PORK loin with pear chutney, spinach, roasted red peppers, red onion on challah. (accompanying illustration: smiling pig reclining with feet up on large sacks of money, staring at oil barrels)

The Big Dick Cheney - An OVERCOMPENSATING amount of Black Forest smoked turkey, cheddar cheese, sliced apples, red pepper mustard, lettuce, tomato on a baguette.

The Ronald Dumsfeld - An OFFENSIVE amount of 5-spice baked tofu, spicy hoisin peanut sauce, pickled carrots, lettuce, scallions, roasted garlic sauce on a baguette.

Wolfowitz in Sheep's Clothing - AGRESSIVELY spiced kafta (ground lamb patties) with yogurt dressing, lettuce, tomato, onions, cucumbers in a pita.

(final illustration: a sheep dropping a vote into a ballot box)

And in the bakery section, they offered Republican Convention Cookies (filled with fruits and nuts).
