The Internet Is Losing Its Shit Over a Senator's Dairy Queen Tweet


This is Chuck Grassley, a Republican United States Senator from Iowa. (Everyone say “Hi Chuck!”) On Monday, he turned the Internet from a temporary repository for people to freak out about teenagers who work in retail to a den of speculation and—dare I say—wonder.

“I presume he means ice cream or maybe more specifically, a Blizzard,” she said, attaching a photo of the Grassley enjoying some Dairy Queen ice cream.


We here at the Jezebel Institute for Tweet Analysis have come up with a list of what we believe the Senator actually thinks the Windsor Heights Dairy Queen is a good place for:

  • To stare into the dark void of a Snickers Blizzard and reconsider all of your life choices.
  • Sitting in the parking lot and thinking up more dumb things you can say about President Obama.
  • Hanging out with Rick Perry.
  • Thanking God that you never actually endorsed Rick Perry that time he ran for president.
  • Ethics in gaming journalism.
  • Tacos (STAY WITH ME ON THIS, PEOPLE). Have you ever been out with your friends and they want to go to Dairy Queen but you’re feeling like tacos. With the DQ, you don’t have to compromise. And their tacos are not that bad. There, I said it. Team Dairy Queen Tacos FOREVER.

Although, in fairness, there is plenty of evidence to backup the Senator’s claim that this tweet was simply about the joys of ice cream. He is certainly not shy about expressing his love for food:
