Bernie Sanders Speaks At A Ben And Jerry's Tub Podium Where I Live And It's Weird

Bernie Sanders speaks at a giant Ben & Jerry's tub podium
at an ice cream plant in St. Albans, Vermont recently. 
I live in St. Albans, a town in northwestern Vermont where not much of national importance happens - ever.

But the internet has been going nuts the past week because Bernie Sanders made an appearance at the Ben and Jerry's ice cream plant here in St. Albans.

That' piece isn't that newsworthy. Vermont's congressional delegations always visit many of our bigger employers.

Last week, Vermont Rep. Peter Welch was at the company where I work, Gardener's Supply.

The internet is going nuts, though, because there's nationally known Bernie Sanders, speaking behind a giant tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

The photo has become a Twitter meme

One image was re-captioned:  "I scream, you scream we all scream for social justice reform!

The photo makes it look like Bernie is popping out of a giant tub of Ben & Jerry's. Like a stripper coming out of a cake. Which inspired this comment:

"Worst bachelor party ever."

Others re-envisioned the conversations going on at the Ben & Jerry's plant:

"Bernie: Today, the top one-tenth of 1% owns nearly as much wealth.....
B&J employee: Sir, do you want the Chunky Monkey or not?"

It goes on.

But anyway, how would you captioned the photo in this post?
