A council candidate who campaigned dressed as a penguin has received more votes than the Liberal Democrats.
Professor Pongoo is an independent candidate in the Pentland Hills ward for the City of Edinburgh Council.
With 444 votes, he received more than both the Liberal Democrat candidate and the Green party candidate in the local authority elections.
The Liberal Democrat candidate Stuart Bridges received just 370 and Phyl Stuart Meyer from the Green party got 322.
Professor Pongoo, whose real name is Mike Ferrigan, carried out his campaign dressed in a penguin costume. He even promised to go to every full council meeting in the costume.
Naturally the 4:20 Fail is awarded to the Democratic & Green Parties' candidates who couldn't beat a guy in a penguin suit. -PC
