UnNews:Sewage in San Francisco to be renamed Bush
28 June 2008
SAN FRANCISCO, California - This Friday, the House of Representatives approved HR 129012010 which grants $62 million in federal funding towards building a new veterans center in Florida. The bill also contained an earmark that names sewage in the city of San Francisco, California, after George W. Bush.
The bill passed the House by a vote of 302 yays and 74 nays, despite some House Democrats complaining that the new veterans center is only going to be built in honour of all of the living American World War I veterans. All two of them.
"This is a waste of the taxpayer’s money, in more ways than one," Democratic Rep. John Barrow said. "Voters in Georgia wanted that money to go to a new methamphetamine factory dammit! How the hell am I suppose to be re-elected?!?"
The earmark renaming all sewage after George W. Bush in the city of San Francisco was introduced after a handful of politicians went and had a few too many in a D.C. bar. The earmark also had the support of a petition with exactly 172, 061 signatures.
