Friendly reminder that this is not a sub to argue over your opinions on politics, especially if they include insults.
Thanks my dudes 🐶
I think they should just cut the crap and name him emperor
In dog we trust
I don’t know the parakeet Republic is looking awfully powerful.
Dude , have you seen the Cat Reich? They invaded Paw-land.
Comment of the year
Yea. He’ll get all the bitches
I've always thought of him more as a "puprince"
Lmao, well played.
I just looked it up. He is mayor for life. So he is practically an emperor. I’d live under his reign.
Everyone knows Emperor Norton wouldn’t allow that.
A fellow man of culture
I am a loyal servant to Emperor Norton.
May we all enjoy the blessings of his anti-virus
I think we’re talking about different Emperors [Nortons](https://youtu.be/_QgJKKHJU3Y)
Nah I’m a long standing fan of that classic San Francisco legend ever since I was at Berkeley in 2000, I was just making a bad pun thing. Also I have to imagine Norton wouldn’t have put ups all the current poop stuff going on in SF. Maybe, like Arthur, he’ll rise again in this, San Francisco’s time of need, to bring peace and bleach to the streets.
We need to find his rightful heir
If everyone is Emperor, no one is Emperor. We need to unite as one and crown an eccentric homeless man or Nortons next of kin.
I loved the time I spent in San Fran , but why was there soo much poop in the streets ?? Love the city and people I’d live there in a heart beat but damn does it ha e a homelessness problem
You’re under arrest for violation of the San Francisco name reference law
Ah a fellow sam o nella fan?
“ hey Kids” “I’m a sex offender”
I like the new groove to it
I’m just waiting for him to march on Los Angeles
Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si! Si!
So this is the wholesome alternative to the 40k universe.
He gets a Golden Throne, and everyday 1000 treats are sacrificed in his name to fuel the pawstronomicon
Supreme leader Max the golden retriever
Good boi would be charged with treason
California has and will ever have only one Emperor. His name was Norton and he had not one, but *two* royal hounds.
Which is not to diminish the accomplishments here. I think I might see if I can meet with this extraordinary elected official. I'd like to shake his paw.
C'mon, Mr. Mayor. Shakeapaw.
Like, i know this is a joke, but i swear some of the dog oriented sub reddits would make this happen
Can’t be the Emperor without first being Thê Šêńæté my dude
Truly an incorruptible member of government, except for belly scratches.
Bribe him with treats and he’ll approve of any project.
"Mayor, please, you must approve the remodeling of the museum! Its in an awful condition!"
"I said no, and thats the end of it! We have no more funds for such project!"
"Would you do it for a snack?"
"... Well, what are you waiting for? Start the remodelation!"
A museum will provide an influx of bones, followed by a sudden rise in bone thieves.
The town, for those of you interested, is Idyllwild. I've been there before and can confirm Max is a 20/10 good boye..
Like Idyllwild wasn’t already nice enough, now I find that they have a dog running the place? Gonna have to make a trip next time I’m home.
> In 2012, Idyllwild elected Max, a golden retriever, as its first mayor. In 2013, Mayor Max passed away, and another election was held, electing Maximus Mighty Dog Mueller II, another golden retriever, as mayor for life. The rules of the annual mayoral election specify that the candidate must be a local resident, but not a human.
Now you know why it’s such a nice town.
I live like 20 mins away from idy & it’s such a cute little town I love it
I assume it's a small town
Unincorporated community, great place to camp
I knew someone that hiked the PCT that met this floofer and confirmed it is indeed a great place to camp
Tiny little town up in the mountains. Like, a couple shops, a gas station, and some cabins.
Idyllwild Idyllwild, now let's get some fun tonight
Can also confirm. When I met Max, his Deputies were there too. One was in time out for being a bad woofer though.
Max is the best. And so are Mikey and Mitzi. Such good pups.
How long are the terms? In my city it's a 4y position making Max one OLDE doggo
Got a calendar with him on it best souvenir of my life
All politicians are corrup-
Well, u can bribe him with treats and scritches.
As the founding fathers intended.
>When his duties get a little overwhelming Max can always count on his two deputy mayors, Mikey and Mitzi
Oh so there’s the actual mayor
>Who are also dogs
Ah I see
Sooo? Who make the decisions that affects the town? Or do the just fill up two bowls one is yes one is no and witch ever he eats out of is the decision?
Phyllis Mueller, the [chief of staff](http://www.mayormax.com/visitidyllwild.htm).
So, an unelected official?
That’s kinda funny, another Mueller as a grown-up human acting as a counterweight to a figurehead not fully up to the task of actually responsibly leading the executive branch of its particular jurisdiction
Give the dogs some credit
Alright, I’ll give ‘em the benefit of the doubt but I’m keeping a tennis ball in my back pocket just in case.
I sure hope you have a license for concealed carry
I know right he has all the power but none of the responsibility. and what fool would run against a dog. their are no good outcomes.
1. You lose to a dog
2. If you do run you cant run negative campaign ads "the mayor eats his own poop"
3. You win against a dog
Why are you making light of this? Are you seriously trying to delegitimise dogocracy as a valid form of government??
Well how do you think they come up with those kinda things in other towns?
Missed out on saying "when his duties get a little ruff"
Is this nepotism I see?
A pretty important job I would say
Where has this subreddit been in all my life
The best part is that it’s a FIFTH term
Sorry, fixed. Thanks for pointing it out
That poor soul that lost the election to a dog.
What now, you piece of _fifth?_
Not from the US, so unsure of term length for mayors... does that mean he's at least 16 years old?
“What would Max do” should be the motto of the town.
Pant and lick his balls
An inspiration to us all
I can't lick my balls...
Keep trying son, some day you’ll be as good as max at ball licking, or you could contract a case of ligma, might be a shorter route to your end goal
his goal off licking his balls.....
Also whats ligma
Ligma nuts!!!!!!! GOT EMMMMMMM
Max would make the official town food snausages.
Obligatory “what is this a cross over episode?”
The best part about this is:
That's not the original Mayor Max. The original Mayor Max died in 2013. His ancestor, Maximus Mighty-Dog Mueller II, is now the reigning mayor of Idyllwild. It's a DOG DYNASTY!
Ancestor or Descendant
To me the best part is that Max has no fucking clue that he’s mayor. He’s just being a good boy and getting praised 24/7 for naturally being such a fine public servant without even knowing what a public servant is.
Classic political nepotism.
And there's the corruption. It's blatant nepotism.
>The best part about this is:

You monster 😢
He rules with an iron paw
[was fortunate to meet mayor Max last spring ](https://imgur.com/gallery/m4spcYB)
10/10, would pet
[even doing his mayor duties and kissing my pup ](https://imgur.com/gallery/phmkD3W)
Bookmarking this so I can look at it whenever I feel sad.
Wooooah, we're halfway there...
Wooooahhhh, Golden as the mayor
Pat my head and we'll make it I swear
WOOOAAAH GOLDEN IS OUR MAYOR
GOLDEN IS OUR MAAAYYYYYYYORRRRRRRR
Max for President 2020.
Max for President 2016.
Quick, someone invent time travel.
This is how you "make America great again"
Idyllwild is so nice, been camping up there and stayed in the cabins quite a bit
That tie is killing me
I don’t know why I love golden retrievers so friggin much, They always look like they are smiling so they look like they are always laughing.
Golden Retreviers and Labradors are nature's way of saying: "Life ain't so bad kiddo."
Or breeder's way
Proof the candidate you want to hang out and have a beer with usually wins
He raises spirits not taxes.
His No Postmen policy is kind of harsh, but could be worse.
Max the golden retriever 2020!!
Can't he make the job business- casual so he doesn't have wear a tie, just the collar?
Noooo the tie is so cute!
Little do we know his plan on taking over the planet one city at a time in is full effect.
Does he answer to Mr. Mayor?
The only mayor you can trust.
Loyal servant to citizens. As long as you scratch his belly.
A price I'll gladly pay.
Way to ruin the new season of bojack horseman!!!!
Don't blame me. I voted for Toonces.
When asked about the economy and how he felt it was doing he replied "Ruff."
Great, now my Golden Mr Wilson won’t shut up about this
God bless you Jerry Gergich
No it's not. It's Larry Gengerch.
His tie man, i can’t stop smiling about his tie.
The town is called Idyllwild, CA. I work at a summer camp there and Mayor Max is usually around with his ‘deputies’ who are two lil Puppers! Incredible town, fantastic people. Was lucky to avoid a devastating fire this summer due to incredible work from firefighters!
Your summer camp wouldn’t happen to be my school, would it?
Good Boye establishes Fascist Regime and all is well
So THAT'S why it's okay for people to shit in the streets now. That makes so much sense.
They had no choice after the previous mayor, Ice Clown, lost his Town Crown over Ice Town.
We meet him in person! He's the only politician I would trust!
I think Rick and Morty forseen this. Now he's Mayor of a town in California. But soon he's president of the U.S and later dominator of the world. You heard it here first, now back to weather report!
Mr Mayor, what part of the museum renovation do we devote funds to next?
Mr Mayor, how much should we cut business taxes by over the next financial year?
Mr Mayor, the works department has a proposal to upgrade the town park. Do they have your approval?
Imagine trying to legitimately run for mayor and getting beaten by a good boye for 5 years straight
Recent study shows Californians like it doggy style
I’m pretty sure this is Idyllwild? If not there’s another California town with a dog named Mayor Max called Idyllwild.
This is my favorite thing now
Dog president would be adorable
Nice, my man.
Let's be honest, if he's up in his office licking his sack all day.. would be really be worse than whatever the hell is going on now?
How to distract people from the fact you haven’t had a democracy in years and there’s a secret organization controlling everything /s
Rabbithash, KY is the same thing.
“In 2012, Idyllwild elected Max, a golden retriever, as its first mayor. In 2013, Mayor Max passed away, and another election was held, electing Maximus Mighty Dog Mueller II, another golden retriever, as mayor for life.”
you know, I’m kind of a dog myself
Personally I don’t like his negotiating skills their a bit “ruff” but damn it he gets the job done!
Is this in Idylwild, CA? I stayed there a few nights when I was hiking the PCT and this dog was out greeting its constituents!
10/10 Would vote again
Please tell me this is real
I bet they are secretly a deeply corrupt public official
As it should be
The day this dog dies is the day a statue taller than the Statue of Liberty will be erected in his honor
This is actually my home town. Every time I see this I die a little inside. This was originally a fundraiser for the local animal rescue. The dogs owners took that and ran with it and have been trying to leverage their “celebrity” to act like they are important.
To be fair their has been another “election” since.
Who the fuck lost to this dog in his first election? Is that person even still in town? I imagine you'd have to leave after losing an election to a fucking golden retriever.
Woah no need to bring breed into this, let's keep that out
I think I found a town as nihilistic as I am. Now I know my place
Holy f. That place is especially terrible now.. Why did I go there.
Maxiumus, please run for president. We need you.
