i've got a golden ticket

Ron Paul To Put America Back On the Chocolate Bar Standard

'Don't care how, I want it NOW.' Ron Paul not-actual delegate (class of ’08) Garrett Quinn sends us this delightful Ron Paul promotional item, from the eccentric old man’s candy factory, which has been shrouded in secrecy ever since Ron Paul fired all his black workers, for stealing, and replaced them with hobbits.

It’s the GO RON PAUL! official chocolate bar:

Your purchase of Ron Paul Bars helps fund various grassroots projects. A portion of your purchase (20.12% net proceeds) is currently funding “The Ron Paul Super Brochure” project. Consider making bulk purchases to send Ron Paul Chocolate Bars to early & late primary/caucus states! The Ron Paul Chocolate Bar wrapper and custom made bar is an educational tool that has a “Wow” effect unlike anything we’ve seen.

Yeah, that’s kind of the usual reaction when Ron Paul supporters are offered free food. [Garrett Quinn’s Less Is More]

      Actually, I hope Rep. Paul, discovering what an inefficient, painstaking way this is to raise funds, makes the connection vis-a-vis public school programs.

      Next up: bake sales, then car washes.

        Thanks (blushing). Yet, you are the Lady Godiva of Wonketeer chocolates, and I am just a humble Milk Dud.

    Hmmm. I find a golden ticket in that candy bar, I'm quietly putting it back on the shelf and walking away before anyone notices. Some things I do not want to know.

  2. anniegetyerfun

    That's actually kind of funny – wait, did someone with a sense of humor sneak onto Paul's publicity team?

    1. OzoneTom

      Oddly enough, they DO offer a dark chocolate version.

      But no bars with nuts.

      No one can explain it.

    1. poncho_pilot

      it actually leeches cacao out of your body making you less chocolaty and more…white.

  3. SexySmurf

    Ron Paul's ideas are like a box of chocolate: attractive on the outside, but once you've consumed them you just feel sick and pimply.

  4. bumfug

    Oughta sell well, republicans gotta eat something sweet while they boycott those lesbian Girl Scout cookies.

  5. Joshua Norton

    Since these are not doubt libertarian, free-market chocolate bars, how much of them are insect parts, rodent hairs, worms, and various other excreta? Don't need no sissified regulations telling us what to do.

  6. UnholyMoses

    Those are the darkest things that have been within 500 yards of his campaign.

    Surprised they don't come wrapped up in little pointy white sheets …

  7. SorosBot

    Stamping that crazy old man's face on the chocolate kind of ruins the appetite; it would make it very hard to eat that thing.

  8. bureaucrap

    "a “Wow” effect unlike anything we’ve seen."

    especially when Paul's campaign workers go door to door saying, "We're hoping you'll trade your vote for this bar of chocolate."

    1. UnholyMoses

      So "WOW!" in fact that our company had about 2,000 of these things made (with our company logo, not the Hobbitman) to celebrate our company's 80th anniversary.

      Guess whomever wrote the text has never had to order promo items before …

      1. BerkeleyBear

        You want a real "WOW!" factor, you make something that really matches your product line. Like the chocolate casket I was handed at a meeting of all counsel for Hillenbrand Industries (including Batesville Casket Company) a few years back. Now, that was a WOW moment (as in "Wow, these people are waaay too happy about making caskets").

        1. Biff

          Promo items can be kinda fun. The outfit that arranged my father's cremation gave me a biz card that is a cleverly concealed 6-ft tape measure.

        2. UnholyMoses

          People in the Death Industry (casket makers, morticians, et alia.) have fucked up senses of humor. (And that's somewhat understandable, given their profession.)

          They just slay folks at parties …

    Ron Paul's campaign is dead. Ted Nougat just endorsed Mitt Romney.
    ""[A]fter a long heart&soul conversation with MittRomney today I concluded this goodman will properly represent we the people & I endorsed him,"

      1. BerkeleyBear

        In Ted's world, "we the people" are the super group he is forming with Kid Rock and Gary Busey. So he hired Mitt as his agent.

        1. Loaded_Pants

          Who would be on vocals? It it's Busey, it'd be the only reason to listen to them.

    1. reliefsinn

      Ted Nougat just endorsed Mitt Romney – And Barbara Hershey will soon join him, followed by Reese Witherspoon.

  10. FraAnima

    Next – Screaming Yellow Zonkers with Ron's mug on the box. That's going to wrap up at least ONE demographic.

  11. orygoon

    Will vote for chocolate?

    Not milk chocolate, you cheap-assed old fool. Although it's more than I would expect from you, which is Raisinettes.

  12. mavenmaven

    I think it would have been more appropriate for Ron Paul to sell Doritos, his supporters would buy ten bags at a time for the, you know, munchies.

  13. Doktor Zoom

    Dr Paul has been careful to emphasize that while his name and face are on the chocolate bars, he actually is not responsible for what's in them.

  14. Callyson

    custom made bar is an educational tool that has a “Wow” effect unlike anything we’ve seen
    Hey, they copied that phrase from the ad for the vibrator I was considering getting…

  15. poncho_pilot

    i would totally hand these out next Halloween and give the kids lectures on libertarian bullshit. because i'm an asshole.

    i mean Halloween 2013. have to let them age a bit.

  16. pinkocommi

    Ways Ron Paul is like Willy Wonka
    1. They both make chocolate bars.
    2. They both hang around with orange people. (Boehner v. Oompa Loompas)
    3. They both are experienced better when on psychedelic drugs.
    4. They both want us to join them in a world of pure imagination.
    5. They both are bat-shit crazy.

    The funniest thing about Ron Paul supporters is that they think they're principled defenders of individual freedom, when the entire country actually sees them as deluded whackaloons who are completely unaware of the utter unelectability of the loopy old man they follow like a pillar of fire.

    1. glamourdammerung

      The funniest thing about Ron Paul supporters is that they think they're principled defenders of individual freedom

      As long as that individual is a white, male, wealthy, heterosexual Christian.

  18. Deportably_Jose

    Still makes more sense than the actual gold standard; chocolate, unlike gold, actually does have some of that vaunted "inherent value" that goldbugs like to yammer about. In that you can eat it and it tastes good, rather than being treated as "precious" simply because it's shiny and digging out of the ground is hard.

  19. glamourdammerung

    I would have thought our new editor would have at least waiting a couple of days before starting to pick on the mentally handicapped.

    Also, I figured the bar would have been white "chocolate".

  20. Numbat_Dundee

    Oompah loompah loompedy doo
    Ron Paul chocolate tastes just like poo
    Oompah loompah loompedy aye
    If you eat it you''l probably die

  21. Negropolis

    …which has been shrouded in secrecy ever since Ron Paul fired all his black workers, for stealing, and replaced them with hobbits.

    The Oompah Loompah's are screaming discrimination about this.

  22. ttommyunger

    Ron Paul? Meh. On the bright side, it's been a good week: Andrew Breitbart is dead and I got to vote for Newt Fuck-Face in early voting down here in Dumfukistan. Again, I voiced my displeasure to the dumbstruck poll workers on the way out regarding the lack of verifiable paper back-up for my vote. I can get an immediate receipt (with photo, thankyouverymuch) for a twenty-five dollar withdrawal at an ATM, but getting a paper record of my vote is just too fucking complicated…..riiiiiiight. This shit has got to change.

  23. DahBoner

    Has anyone ever seen Mrs. Paul?

    Or do they keep her locked up at the fish stick factory?

  24. elburritodeluxe

    I was going to use my food stamps for cigarettes and beer, but now I'm thinking Ron Paul Chocolate.
