The first one to nominated himself was the Ram, showing of his strong paws. Followed by the Hairy Woman who wanted to be queen. Both were interrupted by the Big Hat who assured them all men turned pale, scared to death by his presence alone.
Everyone was arguing except for the Elf, the only one who kept calm.
The woman insisted on it and all of them started to shout: “I want to be president”.
