Here's one from the "a picture is worth a thousand words" category. Finally, in simple, graphic detail, we present the best explanation yet for the real inner workings of the recent US Government shutdown. So now you know.

If only it were so easy to turn off the destructive antics of those scallywags in Congress who pull down not only nice salaries and perks (courtesy of our tax dollars), but also the endless stream of $$$$$$$$$$ from their corporate

Editor's Note: Definition of "scallywag" from the Urban Dictionary:
1. A person who is known to be a treacherous lying son-of-a-bitch, and usually smells bad. 2. A term of endearment used by pirates.
