No Blue Ribbons for The Thompsons

Supporters were hoping he was there to formally announce his candidacy for presidency. No such luck.

He was at the fair to enter his pet pigs 'Rudy' and 'Mitt' in livestock competitions. Neither reached the finals. Rudy and Mitt never stopped squawking and snapping at each other while the judging was taking place. In addition, Rudy tried to eat one of the judge's ties.

When Mrs. Thompson's cherry pie failed to win a blue ribbon, her husband took immediate action. Taking a cue from his powerful Arthur Branch character from the TV show 'Law & Order,' he immediately took control and demanded a recount. However, he admitted privately to friends that the cherry pie of his missus is totally inedible. "If I had married her for her cherry pie," he said, "I would have demanded a divorce by now."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
