It was a hard day’s night on Tuesday as the Eric Dick (pictured above standing next to other well-known dicks) bid for Mayor of Houston fell short. Unable to provide any stiff competition, Dick limped across the finish line in third place behind Annise Parker and Ben Hall, coming in with an impotent 10% of the vote. Although the outcome of the contest was difficult to swallow, Dick stood tall and erect as he spoke to his supporters on Tuesday night.
“We have nothing to hang our heads about,” Dick said. “We stayed in there until the end, even though poll numbers were sagging and we were being encouraged to prematurely pull out of the race. Let it never be said that this Dick doesn’t finish what he starts.” The candidate was interrupted several times during his remarks as the crowd chanted, “We want Dick! We want Dick!”
Later asked by reporters if he would give it another shot in the future, he said, “No, I think this is it, they won’t have Dick to kick around anymore.”
