16 Reasons Hedgehogs Are Better Than Politicians

This November, 100 percent of Americans who exercise their right to vote will be voting for a politician. But is that really sensible?

In the U.S., we’ve spent the past year trying to decide which politician we like the most (or dislike the least). Literally ALL of this time is time that could have been spent focusing on hedgehogs.

Was this a mistake? Yes. In fact, this may have been the biggest mistake we have EVER made. Consider the facts:

1. Regardless of party affiliation, most politicians are more interested in stealing babies than they are in almost anything else.

Hedgehogs, meanwhile, can fit comfortably into your cupped, outstretched hands.

2. The best possible time that a politician can have is when he or she is “filibustering,” which is a fancy word for wasting everybody else’s time without even having the decency to be interesting about it.

Hedgehogs, meanwhile, enjoy putting on tiny little hats and going for a stroll, which is both interesting, and not a waste of time at all.

3. In cold weather, hedgehogs find a warm blanket to curl up in and watch the world go by …

… whereas politicians maliciously take out their frustration at the poor climate on innocent bystanders.

Politicians, on the other hand, will indiscriminately eat anything that is handed to them if they think it will ingratiate them with the public.

10. Hedgehogs are, very sensibly, wary of rabbits.

Politicians, on the other hand, are completely incapable of showing even a reasonable amount of restraint around rabbits, regardless of the potential danger to themselves, their loved ones, or, indeed, the United States of America.

11. When a hedgehog tells a story, you listen.

Politicians think that a good story is the one about that time they went to a mattress factory.

Hedgehogs look like hairbrushes!

Hedgehogs consider dogs their peers, but not their betters.

14. Politicians take expensive vacations at resorts.

Hedgehogs take baths in the sink.
