Quote of the Week: "He made them a hit."

"It's the best thing that could have happened. He made them a hit."

—Jay Stern of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild, commenting to the News Sentinel on the effects of state Rep. Joe Armstrong's banishment of the company's Disappointmints from the University of Tennessee bookstore. The tin box that the mints come in features an image of President Obama, a parody that Armstrong said he was offended by. Since the story broke, the mints are back-ordered two to three weeks as new orders have flooded the company.
