In the recent election in the UK, someone named LORD BUCKET HEAD got 250 votes. Enough to stand on stage with the Prime Minister herself. Also, ELMO got 3 votes. Yes, ELMO. ON stage as well. WOW. I thought we had a tough time in our elections. Next time, I"m voting for Elmo!!!


Not to be outdone, the "MONSTER RAVING LOONEY PARTY" dead serious, that is their name. Won enough votes to make it on stage and become part of the government as well. Wow!

He went from obscurity to world wide fame via the news networks picking up on it. You gotta say, a guy in a cape with a massive helmet. It seems a bit wild but he's actually serious. Can't wait to see how this all turns out. smile.gif
