Does the description for this photo strike anyone else as shady?
“Singer Chubby Checker promotes a new ‘twist’ in the law which could provide extra help to thousands of senior and disabled Americans who need assistance paying their prescription drug costs at B.B. Kings on January 8, 2010 in New York City.”
Without knowing what this law is, the fact that whoever’s promoting the law has enlisted Chubby Checker to do a legal “twist” for seniors strikes me as immediately suspicious. Suspicious as in, the result of a conversation that began with “There’s no way the seniors will vote for this law — but what will they vote for?” and ended with “I got it – Chubby Checker!” and had no sentences in between and the same guy was speaking both times.
It could be a perfectly fine law, and maybe it’ll actually help seniors; I don’t have the seconds to waste to read into that. I’m just glad that on the eve of the Simpsons’ 20th anniversary, someone’s chosen to use Chubby Checker for their own version of the senior-pleasing Matlock Expressway.
