Friday night on a wire, and all I could do was shake my head. White folks will do anything for thrills. For most black folks, just trying to make it every day in America is an adventure. If you are white you have to go looking for that adrenalin rush. Not so with us. Every time we see the po po or get shaded at some high end store our hearts start racing.
Anyway, dude made it to the other side in one piece. The Canadians asked him for his passport and it was pretty much a wrap. Let's see what he does for his next trick. I bet he wouldn't walk through Southwest Philly alone on a Saturday night. Personally, I would pay to watch that. Yes Mr. Wallenda, if you really want to impress me try that trick just once. TV One or BET might even carry it live.
Finally, if you live anywhere in Southeastern Pennsylvania or the Mid-Atlantic portion of the United States, you pretty much know all about our Wawa stores. (Or, as Flipper calls it, "Wawa's.) You can get everything from sandwiches, to coffee, to gas for your car at the local Wawa.
Apparently Mitt has never actually visited a supermarket before. If he had he would have noticed those little things called scanners that they tend to use.
"Where do you get your hoagies here?" Romney asked supporters gathered at the Cornwall Iron Furnace. "Do you get them at Wawa's? Is that where you get them?"
When audience members audibly disapproved of Romney namedropping the Pennsylvania-based chain, he revised his question, asking if they instead bought their sandwiches at rival store Sheetz. The new suggestion caused even greater negative feedback.
"I'm sorry," Romney said. "I know it's a very big state divide."
Romney went on to applaud "Wawa's" -- the actual name of the chain is Wawa (no "s") -- for its electronic ordering system, which he discovered at a Quakertown store earlier in the weekend. He reportedly ordered a meatball hoagie with sweet peppers and pickles while mulling options for his running mate.
"You press a little touch-tone keypad," Romney said, referring to the chain's touch-screen system. "You touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, and there's your sandwich. It's amazing!" [Source]
Yes Mitt, it is. There are a lot of "amazing" things going on in America these days.
