Nothing says tacky like receiving an I donated to the Obama Campaign in Your Name gift card on your wedding day. In lieu of a real present especially chosen for you and your spouse, Obama wants you to opt instead to have your friends and relatives give cash to his strapped reelection coffers. But heck, if that’s what floats your gravy bowl then sign on up, all you zany Obama cult worshipers. Go right ahead—turn that momentous occasion into a pathetic piece of political pathos. You know you can’t help yourselves.
Gravy Bowl? In my humble home, this piece of dinner tableware has always been known as a Gravy Boat. But perhaps bowl is the highbrow description, the nose-in-the-air articulation for the Anna Wintour crowd and all her pedigreed people. Oh dear! If we don’t know our bowls from our boats how can we ever expect to sit down to dine with all those elegant celebrity sublimes?
