A Capitol Idea (126/365)

Hugh and Lisa leave the airport in a car belonging to the Otto Cab Co. (established 2003).
Lisa: [to cab driver] Hey, I remember you! Mayor Quimby, right? Mayor Quimby: I, uh, er, uh, uh, no. Look at this licence: Mohammed Jafar.
Otto: [on screen] Quimby, after this fare, get your indicted ass out to the convention center.
Mayor Quimby: [to himself] I cut the ribbon at that convention center

The Simpsons, Lisa's Wedding, 26 March 1995 (Season 6, Episode 19)

TIME: 10:11 AM
PLACE:  Springfield, Illinois
SUBJECT: The State Capitol Building

First a disclaimer regarding the quote used today...any resemblance to real Illinois governors, living or dead is purely coincidental. *wink* 

DramaQueen's Girl Scout Troop took a field trip to Springfield, Illinois today for Girl Scout Day at the Illinois State Capital.   I think the troop's highlight of the trip was a stop at the Cozy Dog Drive In restaurant for some of their famous corn dogs.   She wanted to take a picture of that, but her batteries had died in her camera...poor thing.  So to answer your question, yes, DQ took this picture and yes, this is yet another guest photographer post.  I know, I know, I've done this two days in a row.  What can I say, I'm a slacker!

Oh no! Another post I don't understand!

Beautifully captured. How fun that your state capitol has girl scout day.

Christina - She takes after HH in the picture department I think!

Lucy - Our previous state of Illinois governor, Rod Blagojevich was recently impeached and removed from office due to gross misconduct. I used this quote from the televison show, "The Simpsons", as the Mayor Quimby character is quite corrupt. In addition, the show takes place in the fictional town of Springfield. Springfield also happens to be the capital city of the state of Illinois. I find the parallels amusing. ;)

Michelle - It is pretty neat. I wish I would have been able to go with her. I just couldn't this time.

Mari - Well, maybe just a little from me.

Jennifer - The Simpsons have such great lines!
