What a time to be alive. A pig, a born and raised true American, is running for mayor of Flint, Michigan. Michael Ewing, an area defense attorney, is the man running Giggle’s campaign, and the one responsible for this amazing news. The race, due to a city clerk error, will consist of only write-in candidates, so Giggle’s odds are the same as everyone else’s.
Ewing wrote on Giggle’s official Facebook page:
“It started because one of the city council members, who was convicted of murder, announced he was running for mayor. I am pretty forgiving, but it I am really strongly opposed to murderand think electing a mayor who was convicted of murder sends a bad message about our city. Not to mention the embarrassing letters he has written about Flint. We also have a mayoral candidate who was recently convicted for driving his car while drunk on the highway with three flat tireswhile driving the wrong direction on the highway. This same mayoral candidate has been thrown out of council meeting because he cannot behave himself. Flint deserves better candidates than this. While reading about these people it occurred to me that Giggles would be a more dignified candidateand I’m right….
So, yes, I am running Giggles the Pig for Mayor of Flint. I hope that you will vote for her as a mayoral candidate who has never murdered a human. She has never placed citizens in harm by driving drunk on the highway, and has never interrupted public business and public meetings. She is a sweet and intelligent animalwhich is more than can be said for some candidates.“
Ewig, who referenced the councilman convicted of murder, received a response on Giggles’ Facebook page from Wantwaz Davis, which has since been removed.
However, it read:
“Hypocrisy has no place nor boundaries and surly does not discriminate, in which you have confirmed. In saying, you can defend men and women in the court of law who have been charged with murder, or any improprieties, take thousands of dollars from their families, in their weakest moments, while considering them to be of no significance or ability to redeem themselves. In conclusion, I honestly laughed at your remarks, however, I will be the next mayor of Flint, Michigan and will feast off of your pig at my victory party, you can get in for free, VIP on me.“
Everything seems kind of normal until you get to the end there. “I will be the next mayor of Flint, Michigan and will feast off of your pig at my victory party, you can get in for free, VIP on me.” That sounds absolutely psychotic! You just can’t eat your opponent!
Meet Giggles. This pig is running for mayor of Flint.
