I don’t know much about Madison, Wisconsin, Mayor Paul Soglin, but I’m willing to bet Friday was the first time in a political career that stretches back to 1968 that he’s been photographed with Groot. Or, well, any Flora colossus from Planet X.
However, you don’t get elected mayor seven times — seven times! — without kissing a few babies and shaking a few branches … of sentient tree creatures.
Soglin (that’s him in the middle) was on hand for the opening of the inaugural Wizard World Comic Con Madison. “I had so much fun on Friday that I returned for a few hours on Saturday!” Soglin writes on his official blog. Groot appears to have won Best in Show in the costume contest.
