BUT THE REAL QUESTION IS, WHO WILL EDDIE VOTE FOR?
From the “Holy Shit I Can’t Believe This is True” department, The Deciblog alerts us to this amazing story:
“UK newspaper The Guardian is reporting that Spanish socialists have adopted Iron Maiden’s mascot Eddie as a party symbol as a countermeasure to Basque region separatists displaying the Basque flag on their desks during council meetings and debates. When asked about the Spanish Socialist party’s, uh, unique choice of emblems, party leader José Luis Uriz said: ‘If I have to put up with their flag, they’ll have to put up with Eddie’s face.'”
No word yet on whether or not the Spanish socialists have rented one of those giant Eddies from Maiden’s live show to storm the separatists’ HQ.
