The District of Columbia Squirrels
Have you ever wondered who has the most squirrels in the United States? That lucky individual is the President of the United States. President Obama, or whoever is the current resident of the White House when you read this) is the lucky 'homeowner.'
Scientists have determined that Lafayette Park, directly across the street from the White House has the largest concentration of squirrels in the entire United States. Why? It seems that the throngs of visitors, government employees and yes, even the Secret Service are always feeding them. In fact there is also a large pigeon (and grossly enough, rat population for the same reason. Lafayette Park has such a large squirrel population that it's known as "The Squirrel Capital."
So I guess there are some really good reasons NOT to get elected to the presidency--squirrel infestation!
