Muppet Running Mate Announced in 2016 Presidential Election

Funny story written by pinkwalrus

Saturday, 16 July 2016

This just in. Presidential Candidate, Angry Cheeto has finally announced his running mate.

The world has been watching closely as Cheeto has narrowed down a short list of Vice Presidential possibilities, wondering whether he would choose to balance out his hot headed image and his reputation for empty calories.

We go live now to where our crack reporter, Kermit the Frog, is on the ground, at the site of the recent press conference where the announcement was made.

Kermit, are you there.


I'm here, Stan. It's official. The rumors were correct. Angry Cheeto will be running on a ticket with Bread Stick as a running mate.

The Newsman:

Did Cheeto give any reasons for his choice?


Well, he said that Stick will give him more leverage with the voting public that does not like to get cheesy residue on their hands.

The Newsman:

What's the general response to the announcement?


Well, it's a bit early to say. In general, the crowd was a bit surprised that he was staying with snack foods. Definitely Stick is a less controversial option who plays well to carbohydrate and bread fans. There are some however that say Cheeto is missing an opportunity to round out his ticket with a dessert item or a more traditional appetizer.

The Newsman:

Were you able to talk to Mr. Stick for his comments?


Unfortunately no, I wasn't able to locate him. He's so skinny he's very hard to see unless he's wearing a hat.

The Newsman:

There you have it. You heard it here first.

(aside, mumbling) Maybe Stick doesn't eat enough Cheetos.
