Unable to post the following on 10/16/13 due to technical difficulties:
"A distinguished man in a raggedy jetsam of clothing is speaking into a soup can, baling wire trails from foreground to a distant spot in the background. The newscaster says: “It is Day 4,380 of The Govmint Shutdown: a 14-mule-team school bus was broadsided by a herd of Bronx Water Buffalo. The driver and all children are safe but were forced to eat two of the mules before help could arrive. The lights have gone off temporarily at New York’s Electrical Appliance Museum due to a shortage of whale oil. The Democrat-Republican Party is taking in boarders and hems in Flatbush, see Fast Eddie. The last corn crop of the season is in at Central Park. Looters will be shot on sight: all others must pay in Mexican or Canadian currency. This is Wolf Blitzer of Fox-MSNBC-Coleman Camping Supplies signing off before dark at the Interim Capitol of the United States, Hoboken, New Jersey.”
