JOHANNESBURG - Fact can truly be stranger than fiction.

As it turns out, in the US an independent presidential candidate running with the name "Deez Nuts" has been polling at nine percent in North Carolina.

It's not the name that's the butt of this joke, nor is it the fact that there's a willing electorate actively voting for a candidate with such a name.

Nope, the real kicker is that this candidate turns out to be a 15-year-old high school pupil from Iowa.

"Deez Nuts" (whose real name is Brady Olson) told _ Rolling Stone_ he was "half trying to break the two-party system" and it was "half frustration with the front-runners."

He says he simply wasn't happy with any of the candidates in running for the Oval Office.

Olson was inspired by another bizarre candidate in Kentucky seeking democratic presidential nomination - a cat named Limberbutt McCubbins.

Yes, you read that correctly… a cat is seeking presidential election in the US of A.

The 15-year-old told Rolling Stone he was willing to take this practical joke as far as America wanted to.

Only in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We wish Olson luck.
