Governor handles his cinnamon

Posted by wlpo on February 5, 2012

Gov. Pat Quinn has not only survived a “Cinnamon Challenge,” but, he did it on live radio. Quinn appeared Friday with Jonathon Brandmeier. The governor says that in a “weak moment” he accepted the challenge to swallow a spoonful of cinnamon. The “Cinnamon Challenge” is an old stunt that’s been revived by people who are posting their attempts to complete it on YouTube. A video shows an apparently unfazed Quinn downing the cinnamon, chewing for a while then taking a swig of water. When prompted, he even manages to recite one of his phrases: “The will of the people will be the law of the land.” At an event later in the day, Quinn said he’s sure he’s a better man for it.
