Hey Man, Smell My Blog Post

As we all know, December 7th is a day that will live in infamy. That's because it's the day George Clinton was elected Vice President of the United States. Clinton put the funk in the White House, and a recently released NIE from 1814 proves that he might have been zinging First Lady Dolley Madison and in a passionate moment going up for the down stroke, caused the fire that burned down the White House. This conflagration was later blamed on the British, a bitter irony considering how generally unfunky they are as a people--just try to get one to pronounce You Shouldn't-Nuf Bit Fish properly. Plus they'll ask for malt vinegar. As for George Clinton, oddly enough the Vice President who followed him was Elbridge Gerry of Gerry and the Pacemakers, not to be confused with VP Dick Cheney and his pacemaker; few people know that Cheney was in a death metal band as a teenager--in a preternatural foreboding of his future, he played death.
