I don't know about you, but I've had just about enough with politics for one year.

Everywhere you look on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and basically every other popular social media platform, someone is posting about the election, and I'm over it. Honestly, how annoying is it to see such division within our nation, mostly as a result of keyboard warriors and ignorant or uneducated opinions?

There's not a single thing I could tell you about politics in general besides who our current president is and that's all you're going to get out of me. Admittedly, I'm fine with keeping silent, because I'm not educated about politics and that's just the way I like to live my life.

It seems to me that I'm not the only one sick of the nonsense and internet fights. The Carver Police Department posted on its Facebook earlier today a rather unorthodox posting that might have gone over the heads of some of its followers.

At first glance, the "red" coverage on the map might come off as the states who support or voted for Donald Trump (since he's a Republican, one political fact I actually know), but if you actually read the grid key, it's a map of which states allow people to have kangaroos as a pet and which states don't.

In the coming days, our social media feeds will be inundated with color-coded maps showing election results in blue and red. In the meantime, here is a map showing the legality of owning a kangaroo.

Such brilliance from a local police station to break up the political noise on our newsfeeds. Yes, I'm upset that I can't own a kangaroo here in Massachusetts, but if I ever decide to move, there's always South Carolina. I heard the summertime is nice and since kangaroos prefer warmer weather, it's a win-win situation.

I reached out to the Carver Police headquarters to find out their inspiration behind their Facebook posting but failed to get a hold of Officer Bell, the mastermind behind this comical relief we never knew we needed.

Thank you, Officer Bell, you did well.
