I’ve been calling presidential candidates, asking them to attend the Seymour Apple Festival as our dignitary. They’d have more fun spending three days in Seymour than traipsing around Iowa!
But when I called Joe Biden, he thought Seymour had a Peach Festival, then told me some crazy story about picking peaches here when he was the Vice President.
Elizabeth Warren claimed she was 1/1,024th toad when I talked to her! Bernie Sanders was the next one I called, and he began chastising me because we charge for corndogs and don’t offer free college to all festival attendees. I even called President Trump, but he thought Seymour was in Alabama and told me he could prove it with a Sharpie!
I gave up on those folks and called Missouri Gov. Mike Parson.
And he said yes, he’s coming to our festival around 4:30 p.m. this Saturday! The governor is a good guy.
He cares aboutMissourians. Even toads.
