Absent from list: My good friend, master magician Pop Haydn, who's schtick is that of a 19th century medicine show con man, started his own party called the American Confidence Party. Their symbol is the weasel and their motto is "In Sanity We Trust".

Vote Pop in 2012!

Hmmm... Maybe after this election, I'll finally restart the North American Silly Party. Have the domain and other stuff. Just need the, errr... lack of procrastination.

I truly think the PEI draft beer party in Canada could have made a go for it if people had just given it a chance

I could get behind an attempt to establish the Monster Raving Loony party in the US.

Well, maybe.

I miss the Rhinoceros Party of Canada. I remember once seeing a picture of one of their candidates. It was a young woman in a bikini, and she was HAWT!! Sadly, she was running in another riding so I could not vote for her.

There is not a goddamn thing frivolous about beer, in almost any regard.

The list has "failed" due to the omission of Citizens for Undead Rights and Equality.

Rhode Island has hosted The Cool Moose party for years. Its sole mission is to abolish the office of LT. Governor.

Appropriately enough, right at the top of that list I see an ad saying "Mitt Romney for President" (though it was under the Australia section for some reason).

That's actually how we started and registered the Silly Party (Hack Patooey, the mind behind "Give Joe The Bird", was the one to actually register the domain SillyParty). The discussion was over what the longest possible email address name could be (64 characters before the @), and things sort of degenerated from there.

The Union of Conscientiously Work-Shy Elements in Denmark actually got elected to the Danish parliament.

Of their election promises:

- Tail winds on all cycle paths
- Better weather
- Better Christmas presents
- Less sex in school staff rooms (withdrawn during the campaign - he said it had been brought to his attention that sex in the staff room was a long-established privilege for teachers and as such could not be abolished)
- More whales in the fjord of Randers
- The right to impotency
- More pieces of Renaissance furniture in IKEA
- 8 hours of spare time, 8 hours of rest, 8 hours of sleep
- Nutella in army field rations
- The placing of a public toilet in the park in Aarhus where he after each election spent his state party funding on serving beer and sausages to his voters.
- More bread for the ducks in parks


The last three was actually fullfilled!
