Jeeze, it's kinda hard to keep coming up with new things to say about these debt ceiling talks when the numbers are impenetrable and the negotiations keep going in circles.
Can't wait till I can move on from this and start talking about what kind of beans I managed to scavenge from the smoldering remains of the supermarket. I've got, like, a thousand beans jokes ready to go…

It is a dark time for the Currency. Since the Economy has been destroyed, Imperial troops have driven the Teabagger forces from their hidden base, then watched in horror as Teabagger forces waved crazy signs on the lawn.
Evading the dreaded Imperial Starfleet, a group of freedom fighters led by Glenn Beck have established a new secret base on the remote ice world of Fox News.
The Treasury lord Tim Geithner, obsessed with finding a project that won't give everyone another excuse to make fun of him/call for his resignation, has dispatched millions (billions?) of new $100 bills into the far reaches of space…

Tax Day is all about uncertainty: "Which post office will have the shortest line?" "Do you think it was all right to deduct that box of wine as a business expense? What about the dancers?" "Are Tim Geithner's employees allowed to utter the words 'turbo' and 'tax' in the same sentence when their boss is in the room?"
But one thing's for sure, we'll post a gallery of hilarious teabag rally photos the next morning. Grab your dependents and proceed to the next line…
Interesting "insight." I guess that makes Glenn Beck's microphone the new urethral probe. (Seriously though, colon cancer is no joke. If you're over the age of 50 you should ask your doctor about scheduling a Pelosi's Gavel at your next checkup.)
This sign would be better next Tuesday.

Here we have a wizard who is concerned about the VAT, which — if you listen to conservative talk radio at all — was the inevitable result of Democrats' Euro-Socialist wealth-distributing agenda. Of course, yesterday the Senate passed a resolution against the VAT with an overwhelming bipartisan majority, 85-13. Nice hat, though.
Teabaggers just love sarcasm. "Tax cuts," that's a good one. Ha, as if "tax cuts" are a thing that would ever happen.
