BarBe Q, the scantily-clad, curvaceous mannequin that serves as the mascot of KT's Barbecue restaurant near Cincinnati, survived a drive-by shooting in November, but did not fare so well at the ballot box.

Interesting history there. BarBe Q is a mannequin that advertises a local restaurant. Some local restaurants protested how she was dressed, in Daisy Dukes and a skimpy top. It actually went to court, and she won.

Since then she has made it onto the ballot for local mayor candidate.
