Ed Rendell “lost” a Stanley Cup bet with the Governor of Michigan and his “punishment” was to drink soda, eat cherries, and dine on sausages while wearing a Red Wings jersey.

I don’t think Ed Rendell would care if he was wearing pasties and a banana-hammock.

This is Ed Rendell.

These are sausages.

Isn’t that like a PRIZE for him?

    Is he just about to give the photographer the finger, or what?

    I think he is about to hold up two fingers…then says, “TWO MORE ORDERS OF DEM SNAUSAGES.”

    Ed keeps pigging out and he’s gonna need to be wearing a banana hammock as a suit.

    I thought Rock & Rye* was an alcoholic beverage. What does it taste like, anyway?

    The punishment would be the Faygo. That stuff’s rank.

    Or maybe the real punishment comes a day or two later, when it’s time for that feast to find an exit.

    Pop. We don’t say “soda”


    Besides, isn’t Rendell a Philly fan anyway?

    Is it just me or does it look like his head was pasted on to someone else’s body?

    John Delano on KDKA TV interviewed Fast Eddie, he asked him how the Detroit food was. He said the sausages were the worst ever, but he still ate them.
