Ha Ha Ha, a good look at what might really happen when the Government shuts down. Bet they never thought to check the building when they sent everyone home.

Thought it would give me insight into the (rationale of) actual shutdown that was in place. Timing was brilliant though.

This book describes a story of what everyone imagined but couldn't put into words during the shutdown. Not only that, but it's hilarious. Awesome way to put this stubborn stalemate situation in a humorous light.
