The Culinary Cliff?
Obama: So, what do you want to eat?
Boehner: You're going to have to lead, Mr. President.
Obama: Okay, great. Let's order pizza.
Boehner: We just had pizza.
Obama: You said you wanted me to lead. I'm saying pizza.
Boehner: I'm not in the mood for pizza. Don't you understand compromise?
Obama: Apparently not. How about Chinese?
Boehner: Don't ask me -- you're the "leader".
Obama: Okay, Chinese.
Boehner: I'm trying to cut back on sodium. Do you really want me to have a heart attack?
Obama: Let me get back to you on that. So, no pizza, no Chinese.
Boehner: Too African-American.
Boehner: Too atheist. Too female.
Obama: Taco Bell?
Boehner: Don't even go there.
Obama: Oooh, yeah, forgot. You'd only get 27% of a meal.
Obama: Listen, man, you're saying you want me to lead...
Obama: But you hate all my suggestions.
Boehner: Correct. You need to lead with something I like.
Obama: Can I get any hint whatsoever of what you might like?
Boehner: I can tell you two things.
Obama: Yes? Boehner: It has "Chick" in it, and it has "Fil-A" in it.
Obama: There is no way I'm eating there.
Boehner: See you at the bottom of the cliff.
