    Foot Powder Wins Election Hands Down

    QUITO, Ecuador, July 17 — Controversy is raging here because a foot powder named Pulvapies was elected mayor of a town of 4000.

    A foot deodorant firm decided during recent municipal election campaigns to use the slogan: "Vote for any candidate, but if you want well-being and hygiene, vote for Pulvapies."

    On the eve of the election, the company distributed a leaflet the same size and color as official voting papers, saying: "For Mayor: Honorable Pulvapies."

    When the votes were counted, the coastal town of Picoaza had elected Pulvapies mayor, and voters in other municipalities had marked their ballots for it.

    The national electoral tribunal now is grappling with the problem, and dozens of defeated candidates are threatening to sue the pharmaceutical company.


    AWESOME! Lets Vote Arm and Hammer in as our next president - can't be any worse than what we've already got!

    Reminds me of an old Richard Pryor movie, where he encouraged "none of the above".

    "Brewsters Millions." Great movie. Had John Candy in it too (a very cool Canadian. )

    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.
