Daley, Fresh Off His "Cuckoo" Hit, Tours Chicago With Other One Word Snaps

Posted: Updated:

Mayor Daley has been getting a lot press for his recent awwww snap! "Cuckoo" line directed toward Gov. Blagojevich, who said that the city is to blame for the potential CTA fare hike.

In fact, Daley and his team have been so excited regarding the praise of his ballyhooed one-worded comeback that they've taken similar approaches with other Chicago figures.

Here are some that were spoken this morning at different press conferences around Chicago.

Daley, on CTA President Ron Huberman getting his back over Blagojevich's accusation: "Boo-yah!"

Daley, on Carlos Zambrano's statement that he wishes the Cubs could have a new stadium: "Whaaaaaaaaaack-o."
