On The Campaign Trail

election, casting a vote, voting

A national political campaign is better than the best circus ever heard of, with a mass baptism and a couple of hangings thrown in. H. L. Mencken

We Work For Cheese has never been a political blog. The closest we ever came was when Mike tried to blame the fall of the Canadian government on Steve Jobs. Politics is a messy business, with elections rife with smear campaigns and trash talking by people who want to run a country.

I know with the Presidential elections looming in the U.S., everyone will automatically think of America’s penchant for negative campaigning. But any country that holds real elections is not exempt from this practice. As a matter of fact, during the 1993 Canadian federal elections, the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada ran ads denigrating Liberal candidate Jean Chretien by focusing on his partial facial paralysis, suffered as a result of Bell’s Palsy. It backfired horrifically, and Chretien won the election by a landslide.

So, no, Canada is not exempt. But why am I talking politics all of a sudden? Because We Work For Cheese is campaigning for votes. Last week I wrote  about why we needed a blog makeover as an entry for a blog contest being held over at Tribal Blogs. There are 3 finalists: We Work For Cheese, NoNameDufus, and Salmon Like The Fish.

And, I  admit, I smack talked Dufus over on Facebook, and on his blog.

But in the end, I realized the error of my ways. I apologize. I was wrong.

Don’t get me wrong, we do want to win. But not like that. We want to win the right way. Which means kissing YOUR behinds!! Yes, in the end, loyal readers and dearest friends, I realized that to lose with our dignity and pride intact sucks gigantic moose appendages. WE WANT TO WIN!!

butt, bum, cheeks, shorts, buttocks, backside

Yes, your butts are finer than this. Without a doubt.

And what magnificent backsides you all have!! None finer! You are the wittiest, most intelligent, funny and talented bunch of good-looking people we’ve ever had the privilege to come in contact with. And not just good-looking, but Hollywood A-list celeb gorgeous!!

We would be forever in your debt if you could find it in those abundantly generous hearts of yours to vote for us. Just CLICK HERE. You can vote early and often! Don’t be shy, share us with your witty, intelligent, funny, talented, Hollywood A-list celeb gorgeous friends. Trust me when I say, you won’t regret it.

Because, you see, without getting into specifics, we are not opposed to bribery and various other questionable incentives. (You can email me at nicky at weworkforcheese dot com to find out more about the levels to which I will sink to win.)

Thank you for your support, we love you and the cheque is in the mail.

  • Well, all righty then.  This works for me.

  • Awe shucks Nicky, I didn’t think you were really looking that close at my ass, now I really know that you weren’t looking, I wish mine would look as fine, but alas, you like cottage cheese?

    Good luck on the contest

  • Madge, the only cottage cheese you’ve got is in the fridge! Your butt is magnificent, no lie!!

  • Vote wwfc… Check and check

  • Gee, I almost wanna say “You’ve got my vote”. 

    But you don’t.

  • Ha!  I remember that ad about Chretien. But, if you think about it, all politicians talk out of one side of their mouths at one point or another.

    Since I love you guys and I love dufus, I’ll have to refrain from voting.  Sorry.  Besides, I’d have to vote for both sites an, well, that’d be redundant.

    Good luck to the both of you, though!


  • What a waste of time this post is for me.  I already voted!
    It’s not really a waste of time. I enjoy reading anything you write – especially if you think I have a bum like that!

  • C’mon, Dufus…you know you wanna! 🙂

  • I can HEAR you! Sheesh…I’m standing RIGHT here!!

  • See, *we* would never force you to choose between us. Unlike some people. We appreciate your honesty, Dozo, and if there’s anything…ANYTHING…we can do to make this easier on you, please let us know. 🙂

  • Babs! You gave me a heart attack with that first sentence!! Thank heavens I kept reading 🙂

    And of course your bottom looks like that! Actually, it looks better than that. You’ve been working out, I know. It shows. 🙂

  • Dang, I’ve always hated elections.  The schmoozing – not to mention the rivalries – is hysterical, though.

  • Voted…again!

  • That’s it. I’m taking Linda and Meleah off my Christmas card list.
