    We Tried To Guess What Frank Underwood Might Be Holding

    This picture is obviously incomplete. How would you complete it?

    Anyone with their roommate's Netflix password is currently binge-watching House of Cards Season 3.


    Pictured above: the internet's favorite presidential murder man.

    Internet statisticians tweeted out an analysis of [minor spoiler] President Underwood's jobs plan, accompanied by this image of the embattled president seemingly holding something invisible.

    Frank Underwood's jobs plan on House of Cards is bonkers

    BUT WHAT? Is he clinging desperately to power? To his marriage? His mortality in the face of looming death and irrelevance?


    No. Those guesses are dumb. Here are some of the things we think it could be and it definitely is —

    The florist was all out of tulips, but he still loves his first lady like a shark loves blood. In this metaphor, Frank is the shark and the blood is still blood.

    Frank Underwood wants to create 10 million jobs, bring peace to the Middle East, and get re-elected all in 18 months. Sounds like three wishes to us!

    The blue robot represents Congress, or possibly Russia.

    "Why you little!" From The Simpsons (Fox). You can still watch Bart and all the Simpsons every Sunday P.M. on the channel of Fox.
