This is NOT a political thread. Anything remotely political will be deleted.

I've seen some cute humor about the government shutdown. I'll start - any others?

You mean, until they reboot the government? Maybe they should have a cluster - when one goes down, the load balancer switches to a different government.

From another moderator over email
a windows safe mode screen that said the gvt had shut down improperly and asks if you'd like to restart with no guns and with free health care?

I've seen several Facebook posts asking if we've tried rebooting it. I'm pretty sure we did that in 1776. Maybe we should try again? Fire all of them and start over.

Great idea, I think I've finally found a reason for vampires to exist - they work nights, are highly intelligent, extremely old and they drink each other's blood daily, just like regular politicians

NBC sports has humor on applying the shutdown logic to the Braves loosing at baseball. It was an entertaining read.
