TDISH: Does the Vice President “Got Milk”?

On this date, in 1804, Aaron Burr, the sitting Vice-President of the United States, shot former Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton in a duel in Hudson County, New Jersey.  Hamilton’s wound turned out to be mortal and he died the next day.  While this is a pretty well-known historical event, especially considering the popularity of the musical Hamilton, whenever I hear about it I can’t help but think about the original Got Milk commercial (see above) from 1993.  I remember thinking this commercial was hilarious when I was a kid and still have a hard time saying “Aaron Burr” without thinking “Aaaaa-on Baaaa.”  I know the commercial doesn’t make much sense, but it is really funny!
