Those mittens

Peace-loving person that I am, I generally try to avoid sharing political memes on social media. But occasionally, something comes along that is so funny I just have to make an exception.

A photo of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at the Biden-Harris inauguration, sitting with his arms crossed and wearing gigantic mittens, proved irresistible to the meme artists of the world.

And last but not least, one web site (link HERE) even lets users insert the image into any Google street view photograph. Just type in your address/location and voila! So I simply had to invite the Senator – and his mittens – to our house.

My first thought upon seeing the memes was, “I want those mittens!” They look super warm. Alas, the mittens were a gift to Mr. Sanders from a supporter who reported on Twitter that she made them from some rather unusual materials. So they are truly one of a kind:

How cool is that?
