It'd be hilarious. New Zealand has had the McGillicuddy Serious Party, and I would totally have voted for them had I been old enough to do so in the elections they contested.

From Wikipedia, some of their policies:

The abolition of money: Replacing money with chocolate fish or with sand as legal tender.
Using beer as a National Defence strategy: leaving many bottles of beer on all beaches, so that any invading army would abandon attack and get drunk instead.
Restricting the vote to minors: i.e., ONLY those under 18 years of age could vote. Announced when Parliament lowered the voting age to 18 years. The party ran its 1993 electoral advertisements during children's programming.
Full hedgehog suffrage: After a goat successfully received nomination in a local body election on Waiheke Island, the party unsuccessfully attempted to stand a hedgehog for Parliament, apparently solely in order to make "prick" jokes.
Limiting the speed of light to 100km/h: 50 km/h in Mt Roskill, (Auckland's Bible Belt), because folks there preferred to stay less enlightened.

I love that bunch.

Yes, although he'd probably then start talking to you about cricket and never stop.

Well, it's tr00 black metal. We're meant to claim to have a bassist but for it to be almost entirely inaudible due to the shoddy recording quality.

Ahh that's great!

I guess we don't have any (that I've heard of) here in Australia because if we did, they'd win the donkey vote, which would probably be about half the population, or at any rate all of Sydney's west, and Melbourne's far west and north.

The demolition of the Auckland CBD
In order to create a giant sundial, using the Sky Tower as the gnomon. Or at other times, to protect the Sky Tower by placing a condom over it.

My favourite McGillicuddy Serious policy.

I don't think I've heard about that! More Beer Party, that's so Aussie.

Also, I love the Queensland politician Nigel Freemarijuana of the Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP) Party.

Good weather (but only if voters behaved).

Full employment by carpeting the national highways
This would also save wear and tear on vehicle-tyres


These guys have to get something going for the upcoming election.

I knew you'd be down with that one.

I love the speed of light one. Take THAT, Mt Roskill!

The only problem with that is the people likely to vote for the MGSP are people who'd probably vote Labour or Green otherwise, and we need all the non-National voters we can possibly get this time around.

Oh, and this cracked me up:

A potato famine: Prime Minister Jim Bolger's somewhat pock-marked countenance bore an unfortunate resemblance to the common garden potato. Much to his displeasure, he became widely known as "Spud"; the Royal New Zealand Air Force, with a typically Kiwi lack of reverence, christened his Boeing 727 "Spud One".
