Hong Kong's "People's Champion"

Seriously....I'm not making THIS up....

An escaped crocodile which ran loose on the Hong Kong-China border for more than two months has baeen named Hong Kong's Personality Of The Year 2003.

The 1.5-metre crocodile, believed to be an escaped pet, beat a host of politicians and celebrities to win the contest on government-run radio station RTHK.

Australian crocodile hunter John Lever and a team of experts from China have failed in repeated high-profile attempts to trap the creature since early November.

The crocodile won nearly 36% of the online vote, ahead of Hong Kong hospital workers in collective second place with 25%.

Hong Kong leader Tung Chee-hwa attracted less than 5% of the vote.

Comments so far:

I must admit, I voted for him.

You know, sometimes we just have to vote for the lesser of two evils, know what I mean?
