Mexican Cat Runs For Mayor

bill-swift - June 12, 2013

Literally anyone can be a politician in Mexico. A kitty named Morris is running for mayor of the Mexican town of Xalapa, (don't ask me how to pronounce it). His main campaign promise is to rid the city of rats. I've been to those small Mexican towns and I can tell you that one little cat can't do that a lone. He's going to need an army of cat ninjas to kill the legions of rats that scurry around the cities south of the border. It's a stunt by a couple of students to protest what they see as the ineffectual nature of the Mexican government. One of the students, Jair Cuevas, said:

"Candidates here almost never fulfill their promises. Our candidate promises to sleep, eat, yawn and play in the dirt and that is what he will do if he wins the election."

An interesting point. I know our government isn't perfect but it runs like a damn Swiss clock compared to Mexico. Maybe it's time that they hand over the reins of power to a cute and fuzzy leader with a no nonsense approach to napping? The only problem is that he would be easily susceptible to bribery. Give him some string or some Whisker Lickins and he'll do whatever you want.
