(Maybe you think that it’s not that interesting, until you realise Mayor Stubbs is a cat (okay so it should have been filed under “interesting animal”). Residents thought the candidates running for mayor weren’t up to scratch so campaigned to get the 15-year-old part-Manx the honorary position with a write-in campaign after he was born. The feline has now become one of the longest-serving mayors in America.
Mayor Stubbs, the mayor of the sleepy town of Talkeetna, Alaska is celebrating his 15th year as mayor.
This opens up so many possibilities, I can see a whole new line up in Parliament.)
