George Washington and Teddy Roosevelt to Skate at Caps Game

Greg Wyshynski has an even better idea:

Since we're on the topic of racing presidents and giant sausage, is there a tradition like this can be started in the NHL? Some teams have fans or workers race against the team mascot during intermissions, but can we get an oversized Garth Brooks, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash somehow involved in Nashville?

Please. PLEEEEASE???!!!!!!

This obviously raises the question of what oversized fake dead celebrities could skate during the intermissions at Thrashers games. What has Atlanta given the world? Seems like everyone worth a damn has come from Macon or Athens or Savannah, for some reason.

Okay, I've got it. Bobby Jones hits a golf ball off of Margaret Mitchell's giant head, which in turn richochets off Martin Luther King's podium, and ends up in W.E.B. DuBois' gaping mouth.

Or, including live oversized fake celebrities on ice: Neal Boortz and Lil Jon and Young Jeezy fight a chair-throwing Spike Lee (went to Morehouse, he did).

I can't tell if Teddy is happy or angry.

Wonderful picture.

Jesus Christ. Congratulations, Johnny Hughes. Great as "Texas Poker Wisdom" might be, you're officially the first person to ever be banned from the Chronicle.

What's the dead porn star John Hughes who could those people in the Wonderland Murders have to do with anything? Talk about a dead person with a big head HYOHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's just vulgar. It was too easy though.

FrenchCatalogues said...

Sorry. Killed those people*. not could. My mistake.

Some asshat named Johnny Hughes came by and published a complete book in the comments section. I eliminated his comment from existence, forever, and he's permanently persona non grata round these parts.

That felt good, that kind of power. Like Stalin sending people to the gulag and erasing their name from public memory.

It was an ad apparently people. It wasn't Don Draper of Mad Men.
