Yes We Can!

I've teamed up with my blogger friend Gwen over at Everything I Like Causes Cancer, to support her in her latest passionate project; Mr. Tennessee, Herb Odum.

Mr. Odum or Herbie, as he is known by those in his inner circle, needs your vote in the "Over 55 Mr. Bible Belt Beauty Pageant 2009". Pictured here in his swimsuit competition photograph, Herbie is described in the official pageant program, which his campaign manager Gwen sent all over the country as:



Mr. Odum is running on a pageant platform which promotes a life lived in purity and abstinence. With Gwen's loving guidance, Herbie has even been convinced to inject some "Bible Belt humor" into his campaign literature.


"How can you be sure a Mississippi girl is a virgin?

She can outrun all her brothers."

"How can you be sure an Arkansas girl is a virgin?

She can outrun the governor."


Mr. Odum credits Gwen with single handedly helping him to "break out of his shell" and dedicates his 2009 Mr. Congeniality award to her. His brilliant campaign slogan: "With Herb's win, wash away your sins" seems to be gaining momentum all over the bible belt as a rousting battle cry. Instead of campaign buttons, Odum supporters and staffers are handing out these ingenious "Wash away your Sins" towelettes, which have been popping up all over the Belt's diners and public rest rooms.


So please join us in supporting Herb Odum for "Over 55 Mr. Bible Belt Pagent" King, because a vote for Herbie is a vote for clean living.

We urge you to vote now and vote often HERE. And please leave a comment with your, "Herb for Bible Belt King" rally cry.


Herb and Gwen also want to remind voters that, although winning is their goal, it's not always about taking the big prize. On the back of each campaign packet sent, is this sticker which illustrates the true meaning of the spirit of this competition which says;
"It's not whether you win or lose, but how you do your hair."

You know, I met Herbie shopping in a vintage store. We started talking and I realized he needed a strong person to lead his campaign and volunteered. Thanks so much Miss Candace for backing this poor sweetie! Herb and I love you, too, ya nut!

Abstinence? Now there's a dumb idea.

Vote Herb, ignorance is bliss, I guess.

With a campaign like that I say to hell with the Bible Belt! I vote him for King of the World!

Abstinence I obviously support and applaud... purity... not so sure.

Blimey the USA is an often strange place to me... :-)
