8 other people who should definitely run for President

Has anyone asked Podge and Rodge?

IT SEEMS THAT we are gearing up to a Presidential Election in November with incumbent Michael D Higgins (Miggeldy) going up against whoever from Sinn Féin is willing to challenge him.

However, there’s a couple of other not-so-obvious characters that we feel should get the Presidential Election a go.

Here’s who we came up with.

1. Bloggers Unveiled.

We’re not talking about the person behind the account. We just want the Instagram account to run. Imagine having to swear in an actual Instagram account as President. It’d be wild. Just signing in legislation with a simple ‘BU xo’. What a time that would be.

2. Podge and Rodge

It’s been a while since we heard from the gruesome twosome so maybe it’s time they came out of the shadows and led the country. We could move the Áras to Ballydung Manor and everything!

3. Boris Johnson

We just want to see Miggeldy destroy him in a series of public debates tbh.

4. Fungie the dolphin

Given the Irish President doesn’t have that much power, how bad would it be if we gave it to a dolphin? A majestic dolphin at that too. I for one, cannot see a problem with this.

5. Devin Toner

A wildcard pick some might say but let us imagine going from President Michael D Higgins who is roughly 5 feet 3 inches to President Devin Toner who is nearly 6 feet 9 inches. What a turnaround.

6. Le Galaxie

They’re talented, they’re cool and they have exceptionally deadly hair. We’d be incredibly lucky to have them represent Ireland at an international level.

7. The Molly Malone Statue

Nobody would take any more pictures of them grabbing her breasts if she was President, would they? You shouldn’t be doing that anyway. You’re an adult.

8. The ghost of Countess Markievicz

She was a badass. The first woman ever to be elected to the British Parliament in 1918 and she fought in the Rising. We’d be so lucky.
