The National Convention Lineup Generator

For the last few weeks, at least here in America, everything in the news has been about the Republican National Convention, which concluded with Donald “The Human Cheeto” Trump being nominated, and currently, we’re in the middle of the Democratic National Convention, where Hillary “After a 16-Year Break, Ready To Pick Up Where She Left Off” Clinton is the first female major-party candidate in American history. The conventions have been filled with speeches by great American orators such as Melania Trump, Antonio Sabato Jr., and Sarah Silverman, as well as booing, protesting, and awkward out-of-sync dancing. Unfortunately (or fortunately), we Americans don’t get to share the fun with our friends and neighbors from other nations, because a) most of us can’t name more than 5 foreign countries, b) most of you are too busy dealing with actual issues in your own countries, and c) most of you are just happy not to have it thrust in your face 24/7.

But that’s all changed now, because I’ve created a way for you to have your own three-ring circus, wherever you are in the world, with…

The National Convention Lineup Generator

Disclaimer: This might take a while for you to do, but I’ll try not to make it too complicated.

Your convention will be four days, each with a different topic.

P – Pregnant

Q – Queer

R – Regular

Mine would be: Juicy, Angry, Confused, and Oblong.

Step 2: Next, you need someone to open your convention by singing your country’s national anthem? Who will take the honors? It’s the first number in your address.

  1. Hey Jacob! First of all, thank you for commenting on my blog. Hope that you will like some of the posts I have written.

    Such an interesting way for you to put up with the American Presidential Elections. Here are my results based on above:

    Topics: Angry, Loopy, Irritated.
    Singer for national anthem: Celine Dion – Great choice actually
    Female speaker: Conchita Wurst – I have no idea who she is actually
    Male speaker: Lin-Manuel Miranda – No idea once again.
    Private citizen: Your long-lost twin – That would actually be cool!

    So, Conchita Wurst will actually be teaching the children about taking selfies. Interesting..
    Lin-Manuel Miranda will be talking about the dangers to our society presented by selfies plagiarism. And my long-lost twin will be talking about what we really need is rollerskating game show host.

    Finally, I will be telling everyone that: You tell everyone that they get a new car! I feel like Oprah now!
