Herman Cain: 'Imagine There's No Pizza'

Herman Cain: 'Imagine There's No Pizza'
Views:

Dave Weigel at Slate brings us this latest Cain atrocity, this one from 1991.

The Omaha World-Herald's video of Herman Cain at the 1991 Omaha Press Club meeting/humiliationathon. Starting at 2:01, then-Godfathers Pizza CEO Herman Cain introduces his act. At 3:50, he starts singing.

(Note: I don't expect anyone out there to have the intestinal fortitude to watch the entire 8 minutes. I've posted a much smaller clip below the fold.)

The lyrics:

Imagine there's no pizza
I couldn't if I tried
Eating only tacos
Or Kentucky Fried
Imagine only burgers
It's frightening and sad
You're lucky you have pizza
To feed for kids for you
Only frosting or cookies
And no dishes you must do
Imagine eating pizza
Each and every day
You may say that it's junk food
But to me it's so much more
It gives my life its meaning
And it makes a lot of dough
Imagine mozzarella
Anchovies on the side
And maybe, pepperoni
Rounds out your pizza pie
Imagine getting pizza
Delivered to your door
You don't have to give up now
On my skateboard I will go
I'll be back in 30 minutes
I just bought Dominoes
All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
Give pizza a chance!
All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
You've got to, got to give pizza a chance!
