Struth!: Vote for Morris. I sleep all day and do nothing.


IN his continuing search for the more weird, wacky and wondrous in the world of travel, David Ellis says that in Mexico earlier this month, voters in local government elections were asked to choose between candidates that included Tintan the dog, Maya and Morris (cats,) Tina (a chicken) and a donkey named Chon.

And while none made it onto their councils, Morris the Cat ran such a campaign for his shot at becoming Mayor of the city of Xalapa in Veracruz State, including his own branded T-shirts, that he was invited to appear on TV, was photographed for numerous newspapers and magazines… and got over 150,000 "likes" on his own Facebook page.

His owner said he'd nominated Morris because "he fits the profile of most politicians – he sleeps all day, and does nothing."
