Joke of the day for December 23
A would-be mayor in Bacau, eastern Romania is in the ‘dog house’ after turning packs of stray dogs into living billboards advertising his intention to stand in the mayoral election. Puzzled voters found their streets flooded with dogs; all wearing posters saying ‘Vote for Radu Nicolau’ on their backs.
The idea has angered local animal rights groups but the dogged Nicolau is unrepentant, and is quoted as saying, ‘It’s the best way to get my message across. I love dogs and they can spread the word about my campaign to lots of places quicker than me and my campaign team could.’
