“推特“走紅鯉魚將競選美國市議員

據美國《赫芬頓郵報》11月2日報道,美國安阿伯市議會即將迎來一名身份特殊的競選者——一只重達20磅(約9千克)的鯉魚。據悉,這只鯉魚在“推特“上有萬人追隨者,一直是聚光燈下的焦點。

2012年11月,鯉魚“20磅“因為對池塘中的植物有“破壞性“而從西區公園中搬家至安阿伯市的一條河流中。此事在當地引起了廣泛關注,“20磅“也由此擁有了自己的“推特“賬戶,追隨者甚眾。

不過現在看來,小家伙有著更大的野心。近日,鯉魚“20磅“(其身后的“推特“發布者)宣布將參選安阿伯市的市議員。消息一出,頓時引發網友的一片熱議。幽默的網友們紛紛在微博下留言調侃此事。

打敗強有力的競爭對手——民主黨候選人杰克伊頓是鯉魚“20磅“必須面臨的挑戰。而當伊頓知道自己有這樣一位對手時,他極風趣地表示:“這真是非常有意思,我將‘20磅’視為此次競選最主要的對手,期待它的表現。“

對此,你怎么看?

One of the city council candidates for the town of Ann Arbor in Michigan has been revealed as a fish.
That's not a metaphor.
Last year the Carp made a name for itself when it was removed from its pond for being destructive to the vegetation.
After having a twitter account set up under the name "20 pound carp", it now appears that the fish has bigger ideas and is using the social media site for campaigning. 20 pound carp has underlined their intentions with such tweets as;
"When I'm elected as a write-in candidate in the Ward 4 city council race this fall, look for some awesome changes"
It is still unknown who is behind the account and the idea but opponents are not taking the fishy character lightly with fellow candidate Jack Eaten telling press this week "I have a sense of humor and I think it's funny. I consider a 20-pound carp to be a substantial opponent and I wish him the best."

Comments
Huffintonpost.com reader Anthony Quatroni writes "I'm sure he'll do a better job than an actual human".
Pax from Mlive.com writes "If the Carp gets the most votes, is the winner: a. the human being with the most votes, b. the human being "representing" the Carp, or c. pending, awaiting the results of a second vote wherein a "named human" gets a majority or of votes?

World news views.com reader Ryan says "one of the positive things to come out of this, aside from some good laughs, is that a lot more people are probably aware that we have an election today in Ann Arbor now."

Ben Car also a huffington post reader write "But a disgusting, useless rat would fit in that much better on the current city council. Probably smarter and less bias too!"
Mlive reader Joe Befumo, "Certainly as qualified as anyone Washington, and undoubtedly more honest than ANY Republicrat".

Harry B also from the world news views site thinks "It's too bad that this is the lead story about today's election. We have a sinking fund millage on the ballot, and an opportunity to change the majority at City Hall, and we are talking about a carp"

Thanks, Mike.
