Some Cheerful Election News

Yes, there really is some! You see, my dear readers, in the state of Kentucky there is, no joke, a town rejoicing in the name of Rabbit Hash. A name behind which, undoubtedly, there is a story. The proud citizens of Rabbit Hash decided that they really needed a mayor, and the best way was to admit the sordid truth and allow anyone to vote, at a dollar a vote. Oh, and the mayoral candidates are all animals, and the filthy lucre accumulated in the election goes to the Rabbit Hash Historical Society. This year the candidates were ten dogs, one cat, one oppossum, one jackass, and one human being (!)

I am pleased to announce that "Lucy Lou" is this year's mayor. Apparently this election, like the human one, was fraught with drama. The kitteh was an early favorite, but slipped to third by the end of the day. I suspect foreign donations!

I'm sorely tempted to steal your snark for a moment and ask if you meant, "This year the candidates were ten dogs, one cat, one oppossum, and one jackass (a human being)." No, no, I won't do such a thing.

I note with some interest that the electorate rose above petty speciesism and viewed the issues as black-and-white...
