As Americans struggle to count the remaining votes before they all start shooting each other, Thailand late Friday afternoon came to the rescue. Specifically, a meerkat held captive in the deep Thai south at the Songkhla provincial zoo who was tasked with settling things, once and for all.
Emerging from its meerkat aperture (Ed. note: We know little of meerkats except they’re neither cat nor kat), the plucky mongoosealike gave a once-over to both candidates’ portraits hanging from a wire line … and retreated back into its hole for a think.
(Who does he think he works for, Nevada’s Secretary of State?)
Before long, the meerkat re-emerged directly below Biden and decisively pawed at his photo.
So there you have it. Congratulations President-Elect Biden! The meerkat has chosen.
