Maybe presidential candidates should chase cheese

May 27, 2008

Americans spend much of their time worrying about gas prices, health care and a never-ending war in Iraq.  Maybe we’ve got this thing all wrong.

In England, the biggest problem is catching up to cheese, rolling down a hill.  This is the annual (you may have guessed it) cheese rolling competition in Gloucester, a centuries-old tradition of rolling a big chunk of cheese down a very steep hill and running after it.

Maybe we should make Barack Obama and John McCain chase something down Capitol Hill.  Winner gets the oval. . . office, that is.
