Get Out the Vote! All Twelve of Them

Don’t ask me why I was reading about 19th-century British politician Robert Peel, but do check this out:

The young Peel entered politics at the young age of 21 as M.P. for the Irish rotten borough of Cashel City, Tipperary. With a scant twenty-four voters on the rolls, he was elected unopposed.

Twenty-four voters! I love it.

That reminds me of the Black Adder episode with Pitt the Even Younger.

In an age when watching Monty Python is relatively mainstream, it is knowledge of Black Adder that marks the truly dorky among us.
