Innovative idea for election reform

Each state picks an official Election Monkey. All 50 Election Monkeys are locked in a room with jumbo-size photos of the candidates. Winner is the candidate whose photo has the least poop thrown at it after a set time period (say, one hour).

Makes more sense than the Electoral College, no?

Too much potential for abuse. Who picks the monkeys? Who measures the poop?

I'm just worried about a Monkey Fixation going on here. . . . .

Sheer genius.

Seems like a system that would favor Simian-Americans. Other than that, the feces-throwing part would probably elevate the level of discussion from where it is now.

Hey, this could work for judging the debates too!

The quality of the poop, in terms of viscosity and stickiness would influence the outcome.
