Proving once and for all that we never really leave middle school, elected officials have allowed their West Side Story reenactments to shut down the government with less thought than you give shutting down your computer. I’m not a clairvoyant, but I suspect the Founding Fathers aren’t too jazzed about this turn of events. Many Americans, especially those who aren’t being paid right now, are similarly not pleased. What are we all to do after we get light-headed from rage-posting on Facebook about this mess? Laugh through the pain, of course. Thankfully, the late night crew has us covered!

Want more government shutdown comic relief? Apparently great minds think alike and our pals over at NewsFix also have a post on the jokes of the shutdown. Check that one out too.

    Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder shaped like a huge Mill

    Stone, and threw it into The

    Atlantic Ocean,

    and cried mightily with a loud voice saying!!

    Just as I have thrown away this stone, the great city of Babylon will be thrown down with violence , and shall never be found again!!!
