Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: It's refreshing to see Gordon Ramsay involved with politics these days.

That makes no sense, dude.

Ecuador, eh? Well, you have to draw the line somewhere.

It was a reference to Chef Gordon Ramsay.

He yells dismissively at people all the time. Often, he calls them donkeys. (potentially not-safe-for-work)

A donkey was treated in a dismissive manner, so I invoked a Gordon Ramsay reference.

Hey, I hear enough nagging from the anti-drug crowd about mules from Ecuador. They hem and haw on what to do untill they are horse. They need to quit stallion and take some action! You may say its just the pot calling the cattle black, but we must not suffer these jackasses' foal play. I will leave you with an equestrian: "Can you survive four mare years of these tortured puns?"

I just realized... The logo for the party of the birthers were mostly born in Kenya.

That's assinine.

That's right. Here in America, we'll let any jackass run for office.

Of course. If he won, who would do the show?

It's a little different here...The donkey is the Democratic symbol, but we have mules and jackasses on both sides of the aisle.

A different sort of donkey vote...
