my secret is copying the ca ordinances and parts of the senate constiuition or whatever
 

Possibly this

Human who needs to think of a more creative title
Well, it's official, Lhwk2112 should not be permitted to be elected head village idiot. Such a result would violate paragraph 5d of the Village Idiot Government Act (2017).
