Jeb Bush Wants to Sell You a $75 Guacamole Bowl

jeb bush guaca bowleIf New Jersey Governor Chris Christie‘s boastful bits about his contraceptive-heavy sex life weren’t enough, now former Florida Governor Jeb Bush wants to intimately invite you into his kitchen with a $75 guacamole bowl.

Dubbed the “Guaca Bowle,” the Jeb! 2016 campaign website’s store introduces it, saying: “Jeb and Columba love whipping up guacamole on Sunday Funday. Now, you can get in on the act with this ‘Guaca Bowle.’ Jeb’s secret guacamole recipe not included…yet.” Columba Bush, of course, is Bush’s wife of 41 years.

As Eater points out, one of the more “striking” things about the “Guaca Bowle” is the campaign’s “brazenness in renaming a molcajete.” They aren’t wrong, as renaming a traditional cooking instrument, slapping a $75 price tag on it, and selling it sans “Jeb’s secret guacamole recipe” is a really bold move.

Yet even more striking is the text’s innuendo-filled allusion to the Bush’s “Sunday Funday.” Freudian slips aside, reading about “Jeb and Columba love whipping up guacamole” doesn’t necessary sound like the best way to spend $75. (Besides, the therapy can be expensive.)
