Mitt Romney has a message for his supporters, and that message is simply this: He is not actually a lizard person and/or malfunctioning robot. Instead, he is a very ordinary human who loves very ordinary human things, like meat.

During a recent dinner organized by his Utah Senate campaign, Romney reportedly gave supporters a taste of the man—not the candidate—with this fascinating glimpse at his rich inner life. From the Washington Examiner:

My favorite meat is hot dog, by the way. That is my favorite meat My second favorite meat is hamburger. And, everyone says, oh, don’t you prefer steak? It’s like, I know steaks are great, but I like hot dog best, and I like hamburger next best.

Just a normal homo sapiens with a take so scorching hot he could grill a steak on it. Mitt would never do that, though, because he likes hot dogs best. (Mitt would probably enjoy this joke because, as a human, he loves to laugh.)

Another “hot” dog Willard “Meat” Romney has professed his love for is Seamus, the Irish setter, who got diarrhea when the Romney family strapped him to the roof of their car for a 650-mile road trip.

Romney probably did not want to eat Seamus, however, because he is not made of cow, unlike like hot dogs, hamburgers, and steaks—three very normal meats that Mitt says he likes (in order).
