Today Gov. Rick Scott went shopping for school supplies at the Walmart on Princeton Street, and in our zeal to get a photo of him with an iPhone, we missed the best shot ever: Rick Scott posing with Funyuns. Damn.

But we did get him trying to glad-hand some nice people. People who happened to have some Medicare concerns. He took their info and promised to look into it.

And he also glad-handed us.

We'll post more video to the blog later, and we'll have our in-depth analysis of the governor's school-supply shopping list in next week's Happytown. Don't miss! More photos, courtesy of Orlando Weekly's art director Dave Plotkin!
