(Newser) GQ had to know what answer was coming when it asked Herman Cain what ice cream flavor best describes Michele Bachmann. “I’m not going to say it. I’m not going to say it …" said Cain. Then of course he said it: "Tutti-frutti. I know I’m going to get in trouble!” Cain responded, according to Politico. As for Mitt Romney, he’s “plain vanilla,” and Rick Perry is “rocky road.” (For more less-than-serious ways of categorizing the presidential contenders, check out their favorite movies.)

In the forthcoming profile, Cain also discusses—what else?—pizza. “The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is,” says Cain. “Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance. A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza."
