Honk 4 Times If You're Confused
Honk 1 for Republican*
Honk 2 for Democrat*
Honk 3 for [ ]
I couldn't actually read the third option as I zipped past the man with the poster board sign on my way to work Tuesday morning (Election Day!). He was standing on the corner of a large and busy intersection, in light rain holding up this sign. It seemed pretty obvious that he wasn't a part of any official campaign. Could he have been a college student, doing some sort of project? Or was he actually bored enough, or crazy enough to go out on his own, for his own amusement and hold a sign on a rainy day during morning rush hour traffic? I was too busy being confused, but amused to actually honk.
(I would have honked 2, by the way.)
