According to T. J. McCorkle of Louisburg, NC and a spokesman for a local group of T-Baggers, the announcement that the convention would be serving steak & lobster at the banquet in Nashville this weekend, came as quite a surprise.
"Our folks don't eat that kind of stuff," stated McCorkle. "Sure, we eat steak on special occasions, mostly when we kill ourselves a cow, but Lobster? I ate one of them once when I was down to Raleigh, wanted to see what it was like, but dang, it takes an hour just to eat the shell. And then they served one of them arty-chokes, bout tore your throat out to try an eat it!
"No sireee, this ain't our kind of food. These folks must of gone eastern on us? OK, I'll go rent a tux and Mary Lou will get herself a fancy dress, but that's it."

Just in, travel agents issued a statement saying that the entire Afro/American community in Nashville have charted private jets to fly them to Palm Springs for the weekend. "Time to get out of Dodge," said the local president of the NAACP. "They can have the drinking fountains all to themselves for a few days. We're off to Palm Springs for some steak & lobster."
