Quote of the Day

Mitt Romney, taking a tour of a diner in Derry, New Hampshire.

On the way out, Romney meets the restaurant’s owner, poses for a photo with her — holding the restaurant’s coffee mugs — and tells her a joke.

“I saw a young man over there with the eggs benedict,” says Romney. “He had the eggs benedict with a hollandaise sauce and the eggs, there. And I was going to suggest to you that you serve your eggs with hollandaise sauce and hubcaps. Because there’s no plates like chrome for the hollandaise!”

She laughs very politely.

“Sorry,” says Romney.



  1. I looked up the joke because I couldn’t figure out what the hell chrome has to do with eggs benedict.

    “This guy goes into a restaurant for a Christmas breakfast while in his hometown for the holidays. After looking over the menu he says, “I’ll just have the eggs Benedict.” His order comes a while later and it’s served on a big, shiny hubcap. He asks the waiter, “What’s with the hubcap?” The waiter says, “Well, there’s no plate like chrome for the hollandaise.””

    Wow did he ever butcher that.

  2. Oops, I missed the hubcap reference in the Romney version. Where’s the damn edit button?
