QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Voting is sexy. I think everybody should do it, and I want everybody to do it with me."
Jake Gyllenhaal, master of tease.

Is this really fair on us? We find ourselves in the whole kitten and yarn situation again - how easily we fall. Now I've got images of those compact voting booths and metaphors about ticking all the right boxes. When is the next election?

We have an election here in Sweden this fall. I promise you Jake, I WILL vote! And as for "doing it with you" - there are other things I'd rather do with you than vote. Ehe.

Anna said...

Oh, this is a good quote! I would love to do it with you Jake, and - as cina - I promise to vote this fall... ;)

Just found this blog, and it's hilarious! Love it. I've recently become totally obsessed with this absolutely gorgeous man that is Jake, so this seems like the perfect place for me. :-)

I promise to vote this fall as well (hey you Swedes!). Oh, how wonderful to be in one of those booths with Mr G... *dreaming*

Jake, you even make VOTING sexy! Not to worry, sweetie; I am all OVER the democratic process. And the fact that you are too just makes you that much hotter.

Agnes said...

Jake, I promise you I will vote and hell yes I'll do it with you ;)

gin said...

Gee, Jake, the voting booths are pretty small, but I'm sure we can make it work somehow. ;)
(ha)

When I was casting my vote in the (UK) local elections a couple of weeks ago, this quote came into my mind. The people on the front desk must have thought I was quite peculiar considering I walked in and out with a stupid soppy grin on my face.

Now THIS should have been the mantra to get young adults to vote, not P. Diddy's "Vote or Die" campaign.

It would have been even better with with a shirtless Jake proclaiming the sexiness of Jake ... um ... er ... I mean voting.

Yes, I can see this, Jake. Grabbing hold of those levers inside the voting booth and pulling them down gives one valuable practice. Participating in the democratic process is sexy.

Katie of Sweden said...

Ok Jake, come here and I'll vote!

beskyddaren said...

Yeah Jake, I've voted too and it paid of - we've got a woman for a president, which is awesome!!

This gives a whole new meaning to "Rock the Vote." (insert your own personal naughty thoughts here]

WHY AREN'T I OLD ENOUGH TO VOTE???!!!??!!!

SCREW THE WHOLE 'ROCK THE VOTE' COMMERCIALS - I MEAN, THEY SHOULD JUST STICK THAT ON LARGE POSTERS EVERYWHERE NEXT TO JAKE'S PICTURE.

*sigh* If I could vote, I would vote for you Jake, don't worry...

Wonderful encouragement to vote, I'd say. Probably much more persuasive then my mantra of "If you don't vote, you can't bitch." ;)

"If you don't vote, you can't bitch."

LMAO, I thought I was the only person that said that!

silver said...

He was talking about voting??? oh...

Have you seen Jake & Peter Sarsgaard's ad from 2004 to encourage people to vote? It's too much, TOO much!!! It's on youtube somewhere. I'm not on my PC, otherwise I'd link.

Ha, we talked about voting today in my history class. Someone mentioned "Vote or Die" and I thought about this quote. I'm with wtbgirl, Jake makes me want to vote waaaay more than P. Diddy.

britpopbaby said...

Yeah, I love those Rock the Vote ads. Stephen Gyllenhaal directed them too!
