Item: Congress is opening up a whole investigation into Google's changing of the satellite imagery around New Orleans to pre-Katrina imagery. Meanwhile, there's no Congressional inquiry into the hundreds of pets that have died as a result of eating tainted pet food. WHAT. THE. FUCK. Google changes some pictures on their website, and this is a big deal. Some corporate pigfucker KILLS FAMILY PETS IN ONE OF THE CRUELEST FASHIONS POSSIBLE (renal failure) and Congress can't be assed. Perhaps thousands of cats will have to have subcuteneous fluids for the rest of their natural life (I had to do that to Arthur in his final years, it isn't pleasant to do, and probably isn't the most comfortable thing to get). AND THE BIG THING REQUIRING IMMEDIATE ACTION BY CONGRESS IS GOOGLE CHANGING SOME FUCKING PICTURES? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH OUR GOVERNMENT?
I'm sorry. That doesn't exactly put me in a jovial mood.
So, please spare me your April Fool's tomfoolery. I don't wanna hear it.
