Ferret Scholar Proposes Radical New Form of Government
Dr. Kenneth Geller, professor of political science at Dartmouth College and obvious ferret, has published a controversial paper that outlines a new governmental structure.
“He calls it Ferretocracy,” says James Goodwell, a graduate student who assisted Dr. Geller with his research. “Basically, ferrets rule over everyone with a benevolent but iron will. It’s kind of like Plato’s Philosopher King. But with ferrets.”
So far, the theory has not been well received in academic circles.
“It’s a nice idea, but it doesn’t account for ferret nature,” says Roger Kemnitzer, noted author and political analyst. “If you concentrate too many ferrets at the top, you run the risk of corruption. Without checks and balances, a ferret oligarchy could run amok, and you’d be back in the dark ages,” he explains. “But with ferrets.”
