At yet another public appearance on his tour of Colorado and Texas, President Obama fist bumped a BBQ cashier in response to the cashier's quip about gay rights. "It was just a lucky day to be the register girl," cashier Daniel Rugg Webb told The Austin Chronicle later.
When Obama approached the Franklin Barbeque counter in Austin last Thursday (after cutting the line), Webb took his moment and exclaimed, "Equal rights for gay people!" Obama then asked if Webb was gay. Webb responded, "Only when I have sex." Webb tells the Chronicle, "That's when he laughed and said, 'Bump me.'"
Webb, who says he does stand-up comedy, seems pleased with how the whole thing turned out. "If Rick Perry would've walked in, I would have lost my job. I would've taken that old queen to town," he said.
