And let’s not forget that after voting, you’ll be so drained of energy, salt, and nitrates, you’ll need to replenish with Bacon Night at the Harris, which fits in well with the general theme, I think… I’d go, but I have an interview to confirm my appointment as Cultural Attache to Monaco, the result of some “favors” I did for certain high-level members of the Federal Government.
