Sometimes government bureaucrats come up with good ideas

This isn't one of them. Unless, of course, you think distributing superhero capes to the unemployed makes sense.

Really, does anyone – aside from a state government drone – think that running around in the guise of Captain Jobless is going to build self-esteem?

God save us from the clueless bureaucrats.

TW: nesane. Not sane, indeed. That's a smart AI.

That was oringinally from the "Onion" right, right?

I'll see your minor kerfuffle and raise with this. "Labor" in California is just about to hold demontrations advocating BOTH increasing spending and raising taxes! And, and, in full solidarity, Ben & Jerry's is coming up with a new labor union flavor ice cream. Go ahead, make my day, try and top that.

Helping them with the new name for union flavor ice cream might make an interesting sport for Paco Nation.

"oringinally"!#% Pick any excuse and I'll run with it.

Steve Martin had a better idea, but I think he was joking. He said the government should just hand out banjos to the unemployed, because you can't be sad when playing a banjo.

On balance, I'd much rather have a banjo than a superhero cape. A job would go above both of those, but that's just me.

First of all, that's an easy one. But it won't sell, because people don't like the taste of s***.

But more to the point, I am glad that I long ago swore off buying ice cream from those ancient hippies. If they GAVE some to me, I'd throw on the ground and stomp on it.

The last time I had B&J, they DID give it to me...free scoop. I was recovering from severe motorcycle crash, busted my head & innards up pretty bad. I'm EVER so much better now, and would do the same as JeffS.
