Blue man runs for Senate
October 3, 2002 12:44 PM   Subscribe

Blue man runs for Senate Stan Jones, the Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in Montana suffers from argyria, a condition in which the skin becomes stained a permanent shade of blue. How do you come down with it? You drink lots of colloidal silver. Jones started mixing his own shortly before Y2K to help boost his immune system in the antibiotic-short apocolypse he was sure was coming. No word if he is now engaged in weird behavior involving metal tubes.

Can lack of colloidal silver cause reposts?

I, for one, welcome our new blue Libertarian overlords.

Well, how about searching the FP for key words like "blue"?

If he's elected, he might become a Blue Dog Democrat!

This guy should've kept his hands to himself on the Willy Wonka Factory Tour.

Agaffin wins "Most Graceful Comment Conceding Double Post Award", no contest. Quick, elegant and humorous - a winning combination!

It'll be a pity if he wins. He'll be stuck in Washington most of the year, instead of joining his colleagues in delighting Vegas audiences with their hilarious antics.

Two things come to mind :

- "Mr. Blue" by the Fleetwoods (or was it the Skyliners? no, it was the Fleetwoods)

- That BBC photo looks like a frame of cgi "in-between" animation from an outtake from the X-Men movie. (Sorry, I would find a relevant link if I weren't at work.)

Thats what he gets for being a paranoid freak. Of course, that will probably go over well in Montana.

Ha ha! His skin is blue!

I dunno, he doesn't look that blue to me. More a touch of gray.

He got this case of the blues from ingesting silver? Such brilliance is bound to tarnish his career. Surely the voters will polish him off on election day.
