We received this photo from the Senator Mike Johanns press shop.
It shows MJ receiving the booty from his bet with Missouri Senator Kit Bond -- a slab of ribs and bottle of barbecue sauce, after Nebraska's (fourth quarter) trouncing of Mizzou in the Columbia monsoon.
The tragedy in this exchange?
Bond hands the good people of Nebraska (represented by the aforementioned MJ) "Jack Stack" BBQ sauce and ribs!
Jack freaking Stack?
Anyone who has ventured to Kansas City knows that the best barbecue around is easily Arthur Bryant's or Gates & Sons. This would have been like Johanns paying off with Burger King instead of Omaha Steaks. (OK, not really, but we felt the same when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor...)
An outrage, it is. A scandal!
OK, that's all. Back to work with ya.
