“推特”走红鲤鱼将竞选美国市议员

据美国《赫芬顿邮报》11月2日报道,美国安阿伯市议会即将迎来一名身份特殊的竞选者——一只重达20磅(约9千克)的鲤鱼。据悉,这只鲤鱼在“推特”上有万人追随者,一直是聚光灯下的焦点。

2012年11月,鲤鱼“20磅”因为对池塘中的植物有“破坏性”而从西区公园中搬家至安阿伯市的一条河流中。此事在当地引起了广泛关注,“20磅”也由此拥有了自己的“推特”账户,追随者甚众。

不过现在看来,小家伙有着更大的野心。近日,鲤鱼“20磅”(其身后的“推特”发布者)宣布将参选安阿伯市的市议员。消息一出,顿时引发网友的一片热议。幽默的网友们纷纷在微博下留言调侃此事。

打败强有力的竞争对手——民主党候选人杰克伊顿是鲤鱼“20磅”必须面临的挑战。而当伊顿知道自己有这样一位对手时,他极风趣地表示:“这真是非常有意思,我将‘20磅’视为此次竞选最主要的对手,期待它的表现。”

对此,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.
