Federal zombies; undead, but not unemployed

April 3, 2009

Blog Guy, I’ve heard rumors that zombies have infiltrated our government. Could that be true?

I’m afraid so. Of course, they’ve been there all along at lower levels, working in Motor Vehicles offices, the IRS, that sort of thing.

But now they’re finding themselves in positions of real power, thanks to President Obama’s decision to have such a diverse cabinet and staff.

Wow! That’s awesome! Don’t  you think?

Well, it doesn’t make his job any easier, I can tell you that. He’s always looking over his shoulder, and sometimes catches people coming after him.

Oh sure, they always blame the zombies! Do you have any proof?

Why do you think they now have three kinds of restrooms at the White House? Men, Women, and The Undead.

You’re right, I did notice that, but I didn’t make the connection

Did anyone else notice that she has two right hands?!Is she actually a mutant? or is that a tasty morsel in case she gets hungry during the meeting?

What Hilary is saying, in her subtle, ladylike way, is that her, uh, appendage, is bigger… just the message we need to send to China, a nuclear superpower with an attitude…

I think that is a vestigal arm. I have one and its great for holding a beer while my other hands are occupied. other than that its useless.
