BREAKING: Deez Nuts (I-Iowa) has formally entered the 2016 presidential race and is polling strong.

Well, that last bit isn’t true. But there is indeed a man in Iowa who filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission Sunday as “Deez Nuts.” He joins a list of 512 declared candidates, which includes presidential hopefuls “Sara H. Paylin”, “Brystol S. Palyn”, and one “Limberbutt McCubbins.” McCubbins is a Louisville feline.

No word yet on why “Deez Nuts” is not spelled “Deeez Nuuuts” the way the good lord and Dr. Dre intended. We demand to see a birth certificate.
