And now for something completely different...

...a state (with a tape recorder stuck in his nose) passing meaningful legislation.

Can we have someone interrupt every GOP press conference when they start talking about "job creators" and say "Stop that, this is getting far too silly."?

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth.
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
Because there's bugger-all down here on Earth in Oklahoma.

In this mass transit project, commuters will be carried along the corridor on a conveyor belt in extreme comfort, past murals depicting mediterranean scnes, towards the rotating knives. The last twenty feet of the corridor are heavily soundproofed. The blood pours down these chutes and the mangled flesh slurps into these...

Everyone said it was unconstitutional to pass that legislation! But we passed it anyway!

And it was declared unconstitutional SO! We passed another bill!

That was declared unconstitutional as well, so, we passed a third bill. That one backfired, caught three of our own guys in an ethics scandal, then got declared unconstitutional.

But the fourth one...became law!

Constituent: Figures. Predictable, really I suppose. It was an act of purest optimism to have posed the question in the first place....... Tell me:

Senator: Yessir?

C: (deliberately) Do you, in fact, care about this country or its citizens at all?

S: Yes, sir.

C: Really?


S: No. Not really, sir.

C: You haven't.

S: No sir. Not a scrap. I was deliberately wasting your time,sir.

C: Well I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to shoot you.

S: Right-o, sir.

(The constituent takes out a gun and shoots the senator.)

C: What a senseless waste of human life.
