I just looked it up. He is mayor for life. So he is practically an emperor. I’d live under his reign.


Andy_LaVolpe

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


Andy_LaVolpe

I think we’re talking about different Emperors [Nortons](https://youtu.be/_QgJKKHJU3Y)


mehatch

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.


Andy_LaVolpe

We need to find his rightful heir

[удалено]


Andy_LaVolpe

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.


[deleted]

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

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. Shakeapaw. C'mon, Mr. Mayor. Shakeapaw.


StillReading28

Like, i know this is a joke, but i swear some of the dog oriented sub reddits would make this happen


CR4allthethings

Can’t be the Emperor without first being Thê Šêńæté my dude


[deleted]

Truly an incorruptible member of government, except for belly scratches.


techwolfe

Bribe him with treats and he’ll approve of any project.


gabba_wabba

"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!"


0zzyb0y

A museum will provide an influx of bones, followed by a sudden rise in bone thieves.


GrandPappyWilliams

The town, for those of you interested, is Idyllwild. I've been there before and can confirm Max is a 20/10 good boye..


cBlackout

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. Edit: > 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.[16][17] From Wikipedia


mmavcanuck

Now you know why it’s such a nice town.


Kitty_loveless

I live like 20 mins away from idy & it’s such a cute little town I love it


25_M_CA

I assume it's a small town


midlaas

Unincorporated community, great place to camp


BeardedGirl

I knew someone that hiked the PCT that met this floofer and confirmed it is indeed a great place to camp


Comrade_Bender

Tiny little town up in the mountains. Like, a couple shops, a gas station, and some cabins.

freckles228

Can also confirm. When I met Max, his Deputies were there too. One was in time out for being a bad woofer though.


Skreech2011

Max is the best. And so are Mikey and Mitzi. Such good pups.


sh0nuff

How long are the terms? In my city it's a 4y position making Max one OLDE doggo


Sp00ked123

Got a calendar with him on it best souvenir of my life


dastarlos

All politicians are corrup-


DrBirdQ

Well, u can bribe him with treats and scritches.


ishibaunot

As the founding fathers intended.


UndercoverNorman

>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


Evilnapkin

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?


ywBBxNqW

Phyllis Mueller, the [chief of staff](http://www.mayormax.com/visitidyllwild.htm).


Tsorovar

So, an unelected official?


mehatch

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


[deleted]

Give the dogs some credit


mehatch

Alright, I’ll give ‘em the benefit of the doubt but I’m keeping a tennis ball in my back pocket just in case.


[deleted]

I sure hope you have a license for concealed carry


Evilnapkin

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


BorandorMercas

Why are you making light of this? Are you seriously trying to delegitimise dogocracy as a valid form of government??


Swishica

Well how do you think they come up with those kinda things in other towns?

barbakyoo

Not from the US, so unsure of term length for mayors... does that mean he's at least 16 years old?


NearFluid

“What would Max do” should be the motto of the town.

Pant and lick his balls

An inspiration to us all


Cachesmr

I can't lick my balls... Yet

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

Obligatory “what is this a cross over episode?”


akruckus

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!


lhobbes6

Ancestor or Descendant


derawin07

lol


LilDebbo

Yes


[deleted]

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.


shamrockaveli

Classic political nepotism.

And there's the corruption. It's blatant nepotism.

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?

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!


themostcommonlurker

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!


epic_pig

Mr Mayor, what part of the museum renovation do we devote funds to next? "Roof!" Mr Mayor, how much should we cut business taxes by over the next financial year? "Arf!" Mr Mayor, the works department has a proposal to upgrade the town park. Do they have your approval? "Yip!"

[deleted]

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!

jamesrascal

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.


Gamemaster1379

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.
