President Barrack Obama announced today that the Waffle House will begin catering all White House State dinners beginning August 1, 2009.
"I'm pleased as punch that the Awful Waffle is going to be serving the food at our state dinners. They didn't have a Waffle House in Chicago. I really love their flap jacks," said the President.
"You all know what a picky eater I am. Waffle House can serve up any meal, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year," he told reporters in the East Room news conference.
"There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that the Huddle House got our contract," said Obama. "They would have had a chance but the Huddle House served the Fox and Friends breakfast just the other day. That really baked my bread!"
A spokesperson for the food chain located in unicorporated Gwinnet County, Georgia, said, "Waffle House is Southern food. President Obama campaigned in Southern Illinois. That makes him Southern enough for us."
The first state dinner Waffle House will cater is for the Prime Minister of Israel and the President of Iran. The meal will be the traditional Southern fare of one waffle, bacon (or country ham) and eggs, rasin toast, and hash browns, smothered and chunked.
