Ever wonder why presidential candidates have to be at least 35 years old? Here’s why.

Eleven-year-old Caroline Gonzalez of Forney, Texas won the title of “mayor-for-a-day”; she used her newfound municipal clout to rename Main Street in honor of Justin Bieber.

“The tween politician’s act won’t cost the community much,” the HuffPo reports. “Officials say the sign was made for about $20 and would only be displayed Tuesday.” Boo! Hiss! Here’s how I figure it: if a town is going to hold a contest to crown a Child Mayor, commit to it! Go all the way! Let the new name stick!

Vatch looks on in the background.
