                         COL. POOLE'S BIRTHDAY


                            HON. TOM GRAVES

                               of georgia

                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, April 26, 2013

  Mr. GRAVES of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to celebrate a great 
American, a dedicated small business owner in the North Georgia town of 
Ellijay. Who is often spotted with a yellow suit, an American flag tie, 
and tophat.
  He is a true advocate for low taxes and less government, and is 
always sure to voice his opinions about candidates for political 
  Col. Poole and his lovely wife Edna founded Poole's Bar-B-Q . . . 
known in some circles as the ``TAJ-MA-HOG''. . . which rests in the 
shadow of the ``Pig-Hill-of-Fame'' adorned with plywood cutout hogs 
with patron's names painted on them.
  In order to qualify for a pig on the hill, he has stated that all you 
need is, ``an honest face, good intentions, and five dollars.''
  Next Monday, April 29, this fine patriot will turn 83 years old--so 
today I wanted to take a minute to say--``Oscar, from all the way in 
Washington, DC--I want to wish you a very happy birthday!''
