“So you’re looking for a vice president, eh?” Private Hudson asked with that telltale smirk on his face.

“Yes. Yes I am,” I replied. I had no doubt where this is going.

“Well, consider your search over.” The Marine poked his chest with a thumb.

“You know someone?”

“No, it’s me,” he answered, completely missing the joke. “I am the obvious choice to be your running mate.”

“Yeah, I don’t see that happening,” I shook my head. “I just don’t think that you have the right, uh, background that a position like this requires.”

“Are you kidding?” replied Hudson. “I’m perfect, think about it. I’m from Texas, you’re from Illinois. We’re the original odd couple!”

“I have to admit, you’ve got a point there,” I answered. “I still don’t know if you’ve got the political background to be a vice president.”

“I haven’t given you my best reason yet.”

“Oh yeah? What’s that?”

“I’ve got a gun.” His grin stretched from ear to ear.

“OK.”

“I could totally shoot my best friend in the face!” he exclaimed. “In fact, I once shot a man and then made him apologize.”

“Well, you do have a point there,” I rubbed my chin thoughtfully. “Shooting your friend in the face definitely seems to be a requirement for the office. I’ve got a question for you, though. What do you think about the vice president being part of the Executive Branch?”

Private Hudson’s brow furled in confusion. “Executive what in the who now?”

“I’ll think about it.”

Uh, ok.

Vegeta said...

Please don't go with Kakarot's suggestion. if anything happens to you Hudson would be president (shudder)

Batman said...

Hudson would be an irresponsible choice.

Galen said...

Hmm it doesn't seem intelligence is a requirement for VP

Just ask VP Dan Quayle


I wonder can Hudson spell Potato?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Would this be seen as a 'dream ticket'?

More like a nightmare, I'd say.

If you let this man become your running mate, I fear that it will be, "Game over, dude. Game over."

Flik Sivrak said...

This sounds dodgy...you don't want that guy starting a war, now do you?

Professor Xavier said...

Er, yes, we're going to have to think carefully about this. Perhaps we could find a spot for Hudson taking care of security at Camp David. Or maybe he could park cars, something like that.

Spider-man said...

Well, he qualifies... *shrugs*

Captain Berk said...

Justice said...

Let me get this right, you were looking at Jan to get the hot lesbian vote, so that means if you are looking to chose a guy who says he likes "shooting" his "gun" in a guys face, then you are now after the .... BEEEEEEEPPPPPPPP!

THIS COMMENT HAS BEEN BLOCKED BUT THE GOOD HUMOR PEOPLE ORGINIZATION OF AMERICA< IT WAS HEADING FOR NOT FUNNY SO HAS BEEN BLOCKED.

SQT said...

....shooting people in the face, spelling potato....

The position doesn't exactly demand excellence does it? Hudson should do fine.

Hudson might would be an ok choice of running mate, but he may not realize that really weird people can get into sensitive positions and have a tremendous impact on history.

I, on the other hand, know the future will be better tomorrow. It is time for the human race to enter the solar system. I drew the Iggy.

Verbosity leads to unclear, inarticulate things. With that in mind, I will enlighten you to one word that sums up probably the responsibility of any vice president, and that one word is, 'to be prepared'.

Yes, with Hudson by your side, you may or may not be ready for any unforseen event that may or may not occur. It's just like John Astin as the Riddler -- it just isn't right.

I stand by all the misstatements I have made. Boy, Larry King sure loves his prune juice.
