TOP TEN GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE SHUTDOWN

TOP TEN GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE SHUTDOWN

  1. It’s the first time in history that there isn’t an eight hour line at the passport office.
  2. There’s nobody blocking your perfect shot of Mt. Rushmore.
  3. The psychiatric business is booming — 800,000 people are depressed because they’re “non-essential.”
  4. In the spirit of Halloween, Arlington National Cemetery really is being run by a skeleton crew.
  5. To take advantage of their sudden free time, federal employees are four-fifths of the way there to a full reenactment of the Million Man March.
  6. Your favorite radio and TV programs won’t be interrupted by those annoying emergency alerts.
  7. You have so much more time now that you don’t have to drive your sick kid through traffic to the NIH cancer treatment trials.
  8. You’ve now learned that “furlough” does not refer to a small dog under foot.
  9.  Although life for an intern is hard, it still sucks less than during the Clinton era.
  10. Hey, I don’t need ten good things; this is a partial shutdown.
