Hey! Just because I already voted, it won't let me again...but I'm from the Chicago area!
(Please don't get offended about this joke:
Mayor Daley, the Pope and the President were in a small boat. When a leak developed, they argued about who would get the one and only life jacket.
Finally, they decided to take a vote, and Mayor Daley won, 7 to 1 to 1!
Sorry, couldn't resist.
