Addressing the Deficit – Comfort #83

Posted on December 22, 2011


To help lower the deficit Congress passed a law that would place specific citizens on deserted islands with only two things of their choosing. When the suits came to my door I was not surprised. I had a lot of student loans that I couldn’t possibly pay back. I was a definite cost to the Federal Government. They asked what I wanted to take and I told them I wanted toilet paper and beer. The bastards brought me regular rolls of toilet paper and light beer. As they were sailing away, I couldn’t help but wonder how I had gotten to this point, surrounded by water and sharks and nothing.
