Kinda Hot Crazy Dude In Charge of Chicago Now

Rahm Emanuel killed them in yesterday's election in Chicago, receiving more than twice the number of votes than the runner-up, Gery Chico, who has the name recognition of a smelly and obscure Asian fruit. (And more than six times the votes of Carol Moseley Braun, the only African-American woman to ever be elected to the U.S. Senate.) Now, Rahm will begin killin' em for real! I almost wish I lived in Chicago, taking your Ravenswood trains and going to, uh, the Loop I guess, on pretend business. Chicago is basically The Matrix, right? That's good, because Rahm is pretty much your Sims mayor.

Chicago is The Matrix? I thought it was Ferris Bueller.

I thought it was Gotham City.

That hand gesture means, "I'm paraphrasing," right?

"I'm paraphrasing, begrudgingly." I bet he learned it from Obama.

I thought it meant "I'm a velociraptor."

I didn't WANT to start my Wednesday with dirty stump thoughts, but here we are.

"This is a Brown Line toward the Loop" gets my vote for best double entendre as spoken by a public transportation robo-voice.

"Number 2 to Flatbush"?

Anything involving the F train?

We've got "Longwood, inbound" up here, but it's not automated, so the announcement depends on the cheekiness of the conductor.

D Train to Coney Island?

First order of business: health inspectors shutter every Arby's in the city.
