Early Morning Breakfast Blogging

Comments

1
Weetabix and coffee.

BTW, I don't believe this is anything but a parody. But people in the comments seem to be taking this very seriously.
2
Tipped yr hand with this one, Stranger. Nevertheless this is still loads of fun.
3
Inequality :(
4
Ignore @2 and @1. They're lying.
5
Toasted Washington bread with Washington honey.
6
@ 2, they tipped their hand by announcing this news this morning instead of yesterday, or whenever this deal was allegedly struck. People are suckers.

Why does Rob "the feminist" hate Washington farmers.

We have a the best strawberries in the world here in Washington State and a thriving jam community.

His promotion of socialist made "English Jam" is an affront not only to the people of this State, but to our forefathers (and as he would no doubt point out our foremothers) who so diligently worked to throw off the shackles of English breakfast traditions, like tea... And jam.

My interpretation of the Ketogenic Diet allows me two cups of black coffee.

I could swear that I saw these jars at the British Pantry in Redmond, maybe not on a stack of Bibles though. I am having a berry smoothie with yogurt and egg. And of course coffee.
10
You had me going until the 'broom to break the glass celling' comment and this
11
I am going to a local cafe that sells locally made breakfast goodies ... and get some coffee from a local cafe.
12
For me it was the unleash the photoshoppers link....
13
I have to admit that I didn't immediately consider that this kind of arrangement is completely impossible without a public rapproachment between McKenna and The Stranger beforehand, so I was at least taken into considering that this might be real. That's the point where everyone should be calling "FAKE," not any one particular post.

That said, "let me hand you the broom to break the glass ceiling" is great comedy. I tip my hat to the true author of that line.
14
I fell for it. Well played, Stranger.
15
I have some of that in my fridge right now. I got it at Delaurenti at the Pike Place Market, just like your friend did after they got back from a long trip not thinking of you. Sweep it onto your toast using that broom you plan to give the laydeez.
16
Well, damn... I kind of wish it were real. *sigh*
17
Huh, Rob. I could swear your daughter said that at your house, you eat partisan hacks like me for breakfast.
18
Oy, why did we do this again?
19
that's 1% jam. i'm having smucker's concord grape jelly. just that, in a bowl.
20
Hmm, the broom line got me wondering if it was parody, but this one makes me pretty sure that it is more likely parody than not.

21
Oh. Okay, never mind anything. I don't care, never did, I don't like you either.
22
Ok now that Goldy and Dan are both commenting, I am pretty much certain it is parody.
23
I totally fell for it, screw you guys.
24
That's totally Goldy's kitchen, isn't it? I was admiring the placemat...
25
I picked something special for you to eat, Rob. It's not from England and it doesn't grow in gardens. Can you guess what it is, smart boy?
26
I fell for the Ellen Craswell joke back in 96 on Savage Love Live. I was fuming!
27
Green tea, OJ and steel cut oats with some salt. This doesn't seem like parody to me - those posts were thoughtful and honest and unless they were actually full of lies, which I do not have time to fact check before work.
28
@19: A bowl? Way too noveau-riche for me. I eat smashed-up grapes out my dirty hands. That's the way Adam and Eve ate jelly.
29
Way to make total FOOLS out of your most loyal readers, Stranger! Nice going.
30
So what if it's fake. The real Rob McKenna is made of straw, too.
31
Rob if your daughter was raped in downtown Seattle and ended up pregnant, would you allow her to have an abortion?
32

Just finished off the last of the zucchini walnut bread I bought from Mosby's Farms this weekend!

33
Black coffee and despair. The usual.
34
@26 that was brilliant, though. It belittled Craswell so perfectly. This morning's gag makes fun of us, not the candidate. Clumsier hands on the tiller these days.
35
I had some cottage cheese, gorp, and tea.
36
I'm sorry, did someone mention breakfast? Let me put my broom down real quick and ill whip something up...
37
Rob is co-charing a breakfast fundraiser for LifeWire (formerly East Side Domestic Violence) this morning.
38
So, now that this is over, can someone please post the morning news?
39
@ 34, if we're gullible enough to believe that The Stranger would hand the keys of Slog over to McKenna when their relationship is as poisoned as one between a news outlet and a candidate can be, we deserve to be made fun of. I think you're a wee bit butthurt at being fooled.
40
@39
If it is a joke then the joke is not funny enough.
And it is going on for way too long.
41
@39, Captain Obvious strikes again.
42
@39: I think you're a little too impressed with yourself ;)
43
@ 41, Corporal Witty Repartee, you're not up to snuff this morning.
44
@43, engaging with you feels like dying.
45
@ 44, that can't happen quick enough as far as I'm concerned.
46
Jesus. This is as boring as Goldy's garden series. Is that you, Goldy?
47
@45: Nobody here likes you.
48
@ 47, yikes! Is that what it feels like to be you?

Nah... this feeling isn't narcissistic enough.
49
This brief one liner battle between Matt and Gus is the best thing on Slog today.

Gus is winning, by the way. "Engaging with you feels like dying" is hilarious.
50
Well, I feel like an idiot.
51
Let's get back to serious topics.

Like the red menace attack on Big Bird.
