Zanta for Mayor?

“I do pushups with no shirt on. And I want to be your mayor.”
So says the short bio of Zanta, or at least someone pretending to be him, on the newly created mayorzanta Twitter account. Yes, yes, yes: intermittent Torontonian David Zancai—whose habit of flexing, growing, yelling, self-aggrandizing, and push-up-ing his way around Toronto while shirtless and wearing a Santa hat has no doubt earned him at least as much civic ambivalence as any politician—may be trying to land the mayoral seat of a city that he’s been banned from large swaths of. Far be it from us to calculate the odds of Zancai’s success so early, but we don’t think Christmas’ll be coming early in 2010.
Thanks to Zack Ginies for the tip.
