    A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!

    DUMMIES UNITED! has released a manifesto update! Our glorious and most serene the GrandPoohbahness himself has guaranteed that the Royal Coronation of King @Cloud and Queen @Nikki the Great will take place at the residence of the GranPoohbahness : the stately Wayne Manor! Immediately after the election of the RealBigOleDummy© as emissary of the Forum! Now , DUMMIES UNITED! makes no claim that our own Duke of Deliciousness, the GrandPoohbahness RealBigOleDummy© is Batman, but its telling that there are NO pictures of them together! The RealBigOleDummy©'s Butler, Alfred ,is mum on the subject saying only that there's a draft from the large and totally empty, so don't even think of looking, cavern system beneath stately Wayne Manor, home to our very own GrandPoohbahness.

    Reception immediately following the coronation so our Legions of supporters of can pay tribute (and bribes) to the newly crowned King and Queen of the forum.

    DUMMIES UNITED! has upped the ante once again in this not even close election "race"! Furthermore, in a speech carried across all TV stations , all radio stations and beamed to the aliens Galaxy-wide, the RealBigOleDummy© had harsh words for @jmc2000 who called this election into being in the first place. Excerpt from the speech : "I, the RealBigOleDummy©, repeat my call to @jmc2000 to hold these elections posthaste! Our people are crying out in anguish for ME to lead them! They want and MUST HAVE their Cups of Kittens, their cute Puppies, and Chickens in Pots (clucking or not), and the failure of the election process is keeping them kittenless and sad. This cannot stand! This WILL not stand! Call the election before the people take to the streets in anger! Hark! Listen outside your window to the chants of the crowd " LET US VOTE, LET US VOTE, LET US VOTE!" I implore you @jmc2000, call this election before even I , the GrandPoohbahness cannot control the passions of the people."

    Wise words from our GrandPoohbahness.

    VOTE EARLY! VOTE OFTEN! VOTE DUMMIES UNITED!

    @RealBigOleDummy, looks like you might have to use the formula that a chicken is to a chair as every pot is to every bum if you'd like to get back your votes. :shake:

    BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!

    The GrandPoohbahness , the RealBigOleDummy© has made another earth shattering announcement! To the cheers of the waiting crowd he has sent out this proclamation!

    "My fellow Forumites, lend me your ears! For I have reached a decision that will start the glorious reign of King @Cloud and Queen @Nikki the Great and enable ME the one and only BigOleDummy (prefix or not) to ascend to the reins of government!"

    "After the untimely defection of a single poor misguided soul, I managed to calm the crowd and ultimately saved us all from a rather nasty event. Reflecting on the cause of this defection I can only assume that this individual was driven MAD by the continued waiting for his opportunity to vote! Yes, MAD!! That is the only logical conclusion!"


    "Wishing to spare the innocent electorate further strain and stress from the unrelenting wait , I hereby call on @jmc2000 to either schedule the election within days OR to get the parties together for a DEBATE on the issues! Yes, your serene and dignified GrandPoohbahness has GRACIOUSLY offered a choice to our unworthy opponents! However though, when I called the oppositions press manager to deliver this most magnanimous offer I received the same result as my last attempt at communication..... :
    [​IMG]
    Let us hope the other "parties" in this grand electoral experiment have more courage than their employees!"

    VOTE EARLY! VOTE OFTEN! VOTE DUMMIES UNITED!

Breathe a little more freely, you other parties as I will endorse NO other candidates." "I do insist on King @Cloud and Queen @Nikki the Great 's coronation though otherwise I will be forced back into the race".

    Does anyone else want to found a political party, or should we put some ballot boxes out?
