    Talking Voters Urged Not to Eat Their Ballots

    OMG! This brought tears to my eyes. Now this is humorous mockery at it's best.

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Reuters) - Canadians went to the polls in a federal election on Monday with a firm warning from election officials: Please do not eat your ballots.
    "Eating a ballot, not returning it or otherwise destroying or defacing it constitutes a serious breach of the Canada Elections Act," Elections Canada warns on its Internet site.

    The issue was of sufficient concern to warrant inclusion in the site's "Frequency asked Questions" section, above answers to such inquiries as "Why should I vote?" and "Am I registered?"

    Three Alberta men were charged with eating their paper ballots during Canada's last federal election, in 2000. The members of the Edible Ballot Society were protesting against what they said was a lack of real choice among candidates.
    The Edible Ballot Socitey....Just to damn funny! I think they should sue the Canadian Government and demand that the ballots come in multiple flavors. I would like a toffee flavored ballot please.
    The mentally handicaped are persecuted in this great country, and I say rightfully so! These people are NUTS!!!!

    Well, all I can say is:

    There's as much chance of me eating my ballot as there is of a politician eating its words

    I wonder what wine you should order with a ballot?

    I would recommend white wine. It goes with fish so should be ok with politics.
