Scott Walker, Please Stop Tweeting About Sandwiches

Yesterday, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker decided to celebrate the very real holiday that is National Sandwich Day by posting not one but two tweets. First, Walker shared a picture of a very sad-looking ham-and-cheese sandwich (we’ll assume the latter was some locally sourced Wisco cheddar). This was at 11:57 a.m.

And then, just three minutes later, Walker followed up with his second lunch-inspired tweet, providing even more information about his affinity for ham-and-cheese.

Despite the flak for his lame sandwich on Thursday (see here: “Scott Walker’s sandwich tweets draw disdain of internet“), today Walker doubled down on his ham-and-cheese tweets, offering even more insight into his lunchtime routine. At two sandwiches a day for 26 years, Walker has eaten around 18,900 sandwiches. (This number is smaller if the double ham-and-cheese is just a workday thing, but, still, we’re talking a lot of sandwiches.)

Searching through Walker’s Twitter history reveals that, over the years, he has been a vocal advocate for his beloved ham-and-cheeses.

Scott. My man. Maybe try a sad desk salad. And for the love of the Green Bay Packers, please stop tweeting about ham-and-cheese sandwiches.
