Dontcha just love interactive government?

I did type “inter” and not “in,” right? Good.

How this almost got past me I’ll nenver know, but I’m glad I caught it before the December 31 deadline passed. The State of Illinois is searching for both a State Amphibian and a State Reptile and Lieutenant Governor Pat Quinn has teamed up with the Chicago Herpetological Society and the Brookfield Zoo to come up with some pretty snazzy candidates. You wanna know the best part? Now they’re letting you have the vote!

(By the way, sicko, herpetology is the branch of zoology that deals with reptiles and amphibians. It’s not that thing that your old roomate gave to his girlfriend, okay?)

So go here to cast your vote for the new State Amphibian and State Reptile.

How exciting!

    and the best thing is, obviously everyone clever enough to find a matching zip-code (like 60624)

    is able to vote. Wherever they live.

    So I picked the big toad, because it is “warty” and the snake because of the “attractive stripes”.
