Where cardboard cutouts of Barack Obama drink

We spotted this yesterday outside Burkes Blue Collar on Congress St in Troy. Burkes is a self-described "working class bar" with "cheap booze, nasty staff, and pretty good food."

Who says Obama has a problem with blue collar voters?

I SEE your Obama cardboard cut out, and RAISE YOU and Jerry Jennings bobblehead doll! That's right baby, now you understand why I'm known in poker circles as "the shark".

And don't you forget it.

Pantaloons - you need your own blog - because you is one funny m'fer.

Between Blue Collar Bar and the Troy Pork Store, you've been all over my neighborhood this week. Whats got you all into the "Pottery District"?

By the way, it seems the Fagbug spends a lot of time here too.

Everyone loves good hotogs and cheap booze!

@Erik: We were just talking about the Pottery District. Though I have to admit that the conversation pretty much focused solely on the fact that there actually was a Pottery District... and all the possible districts we've been missing out on.

I'm so glad you brought on Jessica and Heather. I love their posts!

that is really funny, i see what they are going for and that's a great idea. i am a big fan of cardboard cutouts. i saw got a similar cutout of the campign people from a site http://www.lifesizecustomcutouts.com, its a great place to get cutouts
