Thinking that the presidential candidate needed to show a more human side of himself,
his committee advised him to visit an old age home. Walking into the room of an old man,
with the cameras whirring, the nominee was surprised when the old man offered him some
peanuts from a bowl on the table.
“Thank you”, said the nominee after being offered more for the 3rd time,
“Why don’t you have some yourself?”
“Oh, I can’t eat it,” said the old man, “I don’t have any teeth.”
“So why do you have them?” asked the confused nominee.
“Oh, I like the chocolate around it” was the glib reply.
