Voters are lining up outside polling stations all over the United States of America today, but last night, Barack Obama's supporters in Des Moines, Iowa stood outside in the cold to cheer him on during one final campaign rally.

What happens when you cross a parrot, a zebra and drunken Iowa man driving a truck?
Pure debauchery!…Or more like more pure illegality!
A Dubuque man with a zebra and parrot in his truck decided to have a drink
or seven before heading home.
Unfortunately, when you have a zebra and parrot in your car, you're going to look suspicious.
Especially if you're swerving all over the place!
