O SOONER HAD surprise candidate Deez Nuts garnered an impressive nine percent on a North Carolina poll than an even newer candidate came onto the scene to steal some of Mr. Nutsí thunder.
Candidate Dem Dry Bones has just thrown his hat into the presidential race, taking Nuts and the rest of the media by complete surprise.
"First of all," said Mr. Bones, "I am not a Democrat! Donít let my name fool youI am a super-duper Independent!!"
When North Carolinaís neighboring state to the south was polled, Mr. Bones held a comfortable lead of four percentage points against Deez Nuts, despite not having released any specifics about his platform.
"The American people have spoken loud and clear!" declared Mr. Bones. "They donít want Hillary. They donít want Trump. And they sure as hell donít want some loser named Deez Nuts!" he said. "The American people want a super-duper Independent!!"
Dem Dry Bones plans a whirlwind tour of the southern states, where he predicts he will "blow away the opposition." Then the super-duper Independent will head north to, as he put it, "show New York how to kiss my ass!" in order to erode both Donald Trumpís and Hillary Clintonís support there.
Before heading to western states, Mr. Bones will head back south briefly "because I always forget about Florida way down there" in order to "show Jeb Bush how to kiss my ass!"
The super-duper Independent says he "canít stand a guy with a name that ends with Bush and begins with Jeb" but will, while heís in the Sunshine State "stock up on some Florida o.j., because I got nothiní against the state personally, when I remember itís down there."
