I don't know if I want to admit where I live during the elections anymore. My state is going to end up being the laughing stock of America. First it was the election of the president when Al Gore and George W. Bush ran to see who would be president. I'm not totally blaming Al Gore for the recount. It was Florida who messed up. There had to be a recount of ballots in that state because people in West Palm Beach made mistakes in who they voted for. It took a while to do the recount.

Now during this past election it's something else. Someone put a rare stamp on their absentee ballot. Whoever was going over the ballots spotted this because when they were little they collected stamps and recognized this stamp to be very rare.

stamp
$200,000 stamp put on an absentee ballot

And guess what? By law no one can open the box it's in. It is not even going to be counted because it has no return address on it. This was done in Ft. Lauderdale.

Thank you, /t.

It wasn't my stamp. I didn't put that stamp on the absentee ballot. I put a regular stamp on mine.

$200,000 smackers, eh... that's a lot of lamb chops, little lamb...

Really, it wasn't me who did it.

Yes, that is a lot of lamb chops. Lamb is very expensive.

Who gives a **** about the rare stamp? Are you saying that EVERY ballot in the same lot as that one was not counted?

That's insane, even by Florida standards.

Lamby, I am holding you personally responsible for smacking the **** out of your fellow Floridians.

They are real dumb****s. Don't make us sell that ugly tract of land (which looks a lot like a ****, BTW) to Cuba!

Little Lamb said...

Ok, Pug, I'll have to put everybody in this state in line. Or at least I'll try.

We'll have to dress up the state so it looks good to Cuba.
