As mayor I promise to ONLY make promises I cannot keep. That way you lot never need worry about what I say. Seems the safest way to run a high office, methinks.  Nod

Queer folks, Petty, these New Forumshirans from Queer places such as Bree and Torn etcetera....   Nod

What I think we need is a good wholesome genuine Native as Mayor... Mmm... let me think... That pretty much only leaves Mirabella...

Very true Orwell, very true. After a while one slips into the dangerous situation of forgetting they are foreigners!

Ha! I'm a native. Don't think I ever posted on any other Tolkien sites before joining the original Forumshire.

Vote Halfwise. He doesn't know any better either.

I'm sure many here will find your logic persuasive, Halfy, but really, I think it's about time we had another Woman's voice here. I mean, Women get sick of male voices here yabba yabba yabba blah blah blah all the time. We need some Sense about the pace. Of course, I plan to keep all the male folk satisfied. Simple creatures. Easily pleased - and I'm certainly the type to please, surely.  flower

We need firm positions from our candidates!  What about Forest?  He even has a self-evident campaign motto: Stand Like a Tree. Nod Or maybe Make Like a Tree ... and Get Out the Vote!  {{{No?}}}

the mayoral elections have come to Forumshire
not to be negative but the predictions are dire
There's Mirabella that plastic whiplash girl
Bungo's skill with election posters makes me hurl
RA wants love and peace, Halfy's not so sure
If it was up to me I would show you lot the door
Daves rude veggies are going to come up
In some papperazzi shots with a startled Geoduck
scandal rigging and shennanigans abound
a more motley crew of candidates is hard to be found
so come on Norc! you need to be bolder
we need a Mayoress before I get much older.

Some lovely rhyming Commonsense, Mrs Figg. Yes, plastic is durable and we want our Mayor to be durable (and Reasonable).  Does this mean I can count on your vote? Very Happy
