There's something fishy going on in Ann Arbor.
Last November, the Michigan fish made a name for itself when it was removed from West Park for being "destructive" to the pond's vegetation. At the time, the 20-pound carp was relocated to a nearby river. But it seems he had greater aspirations.
After establishing a Twitter account last year, the carp -- and whoever's behind the tongue-in-cheek account -- announced its intentions to run for a seat on Ann Arbor's city council.
When I'm elected as a write-in candidate in the Ward 4 city council race this fall, look for some awesome changes, my friend.

The carp is also using Twitter to share its campaign platform.
@ryanjstanton Main Street will be lined with shanties and low doggeries, the tanneries and sawmills on the river will thrum once more.

It was unclear by press time who was behind the fishy Twitter.
"I'm amused," Eaton told MLive.com. "I have a sense of humor and I think it's funny. I consider a 20-pound carp to be a substantial opponent and I wish him the best."
