First and foremost, I do not pretend or portray a political analyst or writer in any way, shape or form (especially on syndicated television).
With the federal furnaces slowly cooling to a soft glow, white shirts and ties glumly leaving their hallowed halls, I hope to show the sunnier side of the illustrious 2013 America shutdown.
Below is a list of unknown, but valuable facts regarding an American, governmental shutdown.
- Hidden within the Constitution, “…in the presence of an American Government shutdown, pants, slacks or other accoutrements are no longer required in public…”
- H.R. 23 skidoo (stowed safely in the Smithsonian archives – ironically shut down…), “…on the day of the shut down, and similar days that follow, donuts and ice cream will be fortuitously distributed to citizens of the U.S.A. In the absence of either of the above items, Ding-Dongs will be distributed in their stead as Hostess is an American legacy, and healthy food stuffs…”
- Senate Rule 93.1 WXRT states, “…if federal shut down is imminent, and federal employees are required to take furlough, Kermit the Frog or Grover (or both) from Sesame Street will perform interpretive tap on the White House steps to the tunes of ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ and ‘Stormy Weather’…”
I’ve also include a little bit of Americana in the embedded video, which may bring a tear to your eye in conjunction with the wonderful gifts the U.S.A. affords us during this shutdown.
