hahaha thanks to a reader for sending from Craigslist:
“I am looking to hire an actor to play the role of President Taft at my party this Saturday night.
The backstory is that my apartment of 7 years is named the Taft Suite and known by friends as such. We are moving out and it’s the end of an era.
Party date: Saturday, 10/17.
Hours: 11 pm- 2 am. But flexible.
Basically just look like Taft.
Wear a suit and tie.
Alternate outfit- a bath robe to wear on top of the suit with maybe a rubber ducky for bath time! A shower cap is silly too.
(He was famous for getting stuck in a bath tub)
I hope you’ll enjoy the creative freedom this role allows. You can do anything Presidential and especially fitting if it’s of early 1900 style.
Please learn a few lines of Taft’s more notable speeches from Office.
I’m open to any other embellishments or suggestions of this general idea.”
