We voted yesterday
Posted by Francesca
Yesterday was Election Day in the United States and we animals at the farm, decided to have an election of our own for Farm Pet Government. We chose two positions to fill - Councilpet at Large and First Selectpet. These offices sound very important and there were six of us who were running. Of course, we Frenchies were very confident that one of us would win and we cast our vote fair and square. However, we discovered that there was one among us who caused a bit of trouble and we may be demanding a re-election. The word 'smug' was thrown around yesterday. Who do you think is the smug one at the farm?
1 1-Here is what our ballot forms looked like. We were voting for Councilpet at Large and First Selectpet.
2 2-As you can see, Clive the donkey, Meindert the horse, Bartok the cat, Francesca the Frenchie, Sharkey the Frenchie, and Vivaldi the cat were all hopeful contenders. Why, we the Frenchies, were running against each other, we just don't know.
3 3-Ha-ha-ha! I, Vivaldi the cat, am going to play a little trick on those Frenchies!! After all, they're always so smug.
4 4-I'll just tape this sign onto Martha's paper shredder.
5 5-I'm casting my vote for Clive the donkey and, of course, for myself, Sharkey the Frenchie!
6 6-Francesca - that would be moi - gets my vote!
7 7-Franny, it says that this is the ballot box - I'll just slip mine in.
8 8-You're right, Sharkey, but why is it making such a funny noise?
9 9-If I whisper who I voted for, will you tell me your vote?
10 10-I feel so proud to have voted today. May the best animal win!
11 11-Now, all I need to do is fill in the square that says 'Vivaldi the cat.'
12 12-I'll teach those Frenchies to be smug. I've rigged the election so that I win by a landslide - I'm the new First Selectpet and now all I have to do is relax!!!
