This Is Why 11-Year-Olds Cannot Govern

This Is Why 11-Year-Olds Cannot Govern


You know, there's a reason we stopped putting children in charge of anything bigger than a playset about, oh, 300 years ago. They tend to screw things up. Or, at the very least, do things that would make an adult cringe.

Like, say, Caroline Gonzalez of Forney, Texas. She was the lucky fifth-grader that won the honor of being the town's mayor for a day through Facebook. And what did she do with her newfound power?

She changed the name of Main Street to Justin Bieber Way.

This wasn't some memo she filed either. They actually made the sign and put it up and everything. Then the town's founders rose from their graves and ate the entire population before marching on Dallas.

 


No, just kidding, they took the sign down after her day was up, and gave it to her as a souvenir. We're sure, however, that the Biebs is very honored. At least somebody will remember him five years from now.
