There Are Strange Things Done in the Midnight Sun...

Here are the local stories on my Google news service email today. See what you think.

First up:
Yukon Rhino taking election rejection to court
A would-be Rhinoceros Party candidate and his campaign manager are butting heads with election authorities after being denied a space on the ballot for the upcoming federal ballot.

Ben Mahoney is vowing to take his case to the Yukon Supreme Court.

Mahoney presented his $1,000 deposit and the required 50 signatures at the Elections Canada office on Monday, just ahead of the nomination deadline.

But Mahoney's campaign manager and official agent Brian Salmi says they couldn't find an accountant willing to certify their election expense account.

"Democracy does not exist in this country because the citizen has been denied his right to run for office," said Salmi
And this one just gets even wierder:
Mahoney, also known as Big Ben Mahoney, and his manager, who goes by the name Brian Goozilla Salmi, have been spotted around Whitehorse over the past few days sporting paper-towel 'horns' on their foreheads.
Okay, I see the picture of the two guys sporting horns. One is a paper towel tube. The other is half that long. You draw your own conclusion.

Then there's this:
Yukon villagers believe they saw Bigfoot
A Sasquatch sighting has tongues wagging in the Yukon village of Teslin.

Two people say they saw the fabled bushman, also known as Bigfoot, cross the highway at the construction zone near the Teslin airport....
So the conservation officer was called. According to him,
"...they said this person was completely covered in hair and took just two strides to get across the whole Alaska highway."
Yep, just two steps...and any tracks were apparently wiped out by the rain.

So what do you think? Too many daylight hours and not enough sleep? Or what?
