Oh, Lukey.

Reader M informs me that in the latest issue of Whirl Magazine, Lukey says:

“I’ve had people ask me, ‘What’s your greatest treasure,'” the Mayor says. “and I’ve said, ‘My living room couch.’ It represents being gone for the day, and I get to wear sweatpants and a sweatshirt and just be myself.”

Wow.  Every girl’s dream, right?  Someone asks your husband what his greatest treasure is and he goes with the couch.

The couch.

I guess it could have been worse.  He could have said “sausages.”

Take heart, Erin.

    This is why I sometimes feel that our lives are scripted by a cryptically bastard-like comedy writer. How is this man the mayor, and why? Well, to make us laugh! And you mention sausages. That Bud Light ad where dogs can talk and all they say is, “sausage”? Imagine if that’s all Luke could say? Ha!

    And Lukey’s wife said, “Good thing I cook or else we’d starve to death.”

    How and why is this man the mayor? Because it is also in the DNA of Pittsburgh voters to believe that absolutely nobody other than a Democrat is capable of leading this city. We hold this truth to be self-evident here in the Burgh.

    The voters chose him, therefore the city deserves him. But hey, he’s a celebrity so it’s all cool.

    I’m suprised his greatest treasure isn’t his toilet, because he must shit himself on a daily basis, laughing about actually being elected mayor of Pittsburgh.

    He could have said his greatest treasure was his donkey omelette’s, but lets not go there…
