* AttackOfThePoliticalAd: In her picture book ''Otto Runs for President'', the ads for as school election start about halfway decent, with Charles's side promising meat in the cafeteria and Tiffany's promising more mirrors in the girls' bathroom, among other thing.

He wins the election.

* AttackOfThePoliticalAd: In her picture book ''Otto Runs for President'', the ads for as school election start about halfway decent, with Charles's side promising meat in the cafeteria and Tiffany's promising more mirrors in the girls' bathroom, among other thing. They quickly descend into Tiffany insinuating that Charles is a cheater, and Charles insinuating Tiffany of spending class dues on hairspray, and soon become worse than insinuations. "TIFFANY: Wrong on hairspray! Wrong for Barkladelphia School!" Meanwhile, Otto ignores both campaigns, quietly speaks to everyone in the school about what they actually want out of a school president and what the school needs, then passes out cookies with his campaign platform. He wins the election.
