Bruno Färber

Today we drove through the city of Cuhr. Interesting sidenote: Back in the ’40s, a guy named Bruno Färber ran for mayor of Cuhr with what may be the worst campaign slogan ever: “An Almond in Every Pot.”
Färber’s attempts at damage control only made things worse. “Five almonds in every pot!” he promised. Then: “Twenty almonds in every pot!”
He could have promised one hundred almonds in every pot, and they’d still have called him Herr “Geben Sie Jeder Eine Mandel” (Mr. “Give Everybody an Almond”).
I don’t care what decade it is. And I don’t care what country you’re in. Nobody’s going to vote for Herr “Geben Sie Jeder Eine Mandel.”

    I would vote for “Mr. Give Everybody an Almond” over our current president in a heartbeat. I would also vote for a pot with an almond in it, an almond with no pot, a pot with no almond, an Almond Joy candy bar, or Mr. Peanut.
