Michele Bachmann Flattered By Cougar Joke, On Twitter
Some person at the University of Iowa is suffering whatever consequences one faces when one makes a dumb joke about an all-around insane woman trying her absolute hardest to win America, on the promise of giving everyone cervical cancer popsicles forever.
The University of Iowa is apologizing for a joke on a school Twitter feed that appeared to refer to Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann as a cougar.
Trying to make light of reports of a mountain lion or cougar sighting in Iowa City, the school tweeted Thursday: “I didn’t know Bachmann was in town. Bah-dum-bum.”
The university removed the posting after an inquiry from The Associated Press. It later tweeted an apology.
Iowa spokesman Tom Moore says a staff person was responsible and actions were being taken to “address this situation.”
Bachmann’s campaign released a statement saying she was grateful not to be called “The Old Lady in the Shoe.”
Michele Bachmann is excited to be a cougar, which is a thing you call an old lady who likes to prey on young men. Obviously this was an inaccurate joke, because Michele Bachmann likes to prey on gay men. Anything is better than being the "Old Lady in the Shoe," though, which is a woman from a story who lives inside of an old boot with her million foster children and gives them soup for dinner before beating them and putting them to sleep. You lucked out this time, Michele Bachmann! [AP]
