WASHINGTON—Calling the busted cylinder a national hero, sources confirmed Wednesday that a sewer pipe in the U.S. Capitol building valiantly burst open, pouring more than 1.5 million gallons of raw sewage into Congress and flooding the Senate and House of Representatives with human excrement, sludge, and wastewater. “Someone or something had to step up and fight for the American people, and when I heard that explosion and then saw congressman after congressman get swept up by a massive wave of feces and urine, I knew that sewage pipe had done something truly brave and extraordinary,” said one congressional source, adding the pipe’s heroics were evident from the outset when the initial explosion splattered Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) with wadded-up toilet paper, sanitary napkins, vomit, and cholera-containing pathogens. “Harry Reid must have guzzled down at least three thermosfuls of this brownish slop, and John Boehner was covered in human offal. Every Tea Party Republican, including Michele Bachmann and Steve King, had so much fecal matter on them that all you could see were the parts of their eyes where they wiped it away. They were all in one corner throwing up and dry heaving because of how putrid the smell was. This cracked sewage pipe deserves the Medal of Honor.” At press time, nobody was trying to fix the pipe.

A grateful nation sighed a resounding "thank you" to the sewage pipe.

Given how much offal/awful proved to have been elected with slimy tactics akin to things better left underground, I'm surprised some of them even noticed it wasn't one of their buddies. Thanks Kit--that may help wash away the bad taste of the tea the TP was trying to force feed the nation as if we were all at Gitmo.

I've been saying for the last four years that we should be building waste conversion plants in all the governmental centres across the country. Toronto could power its downtown financial core year after year with all the BS and hot air that is generated there. How much more so Ottawa or Washington?

Yes, Nancy it does, but not usually with this much fun. Should that be a bumper sticker?

Isn't it already? Hmm, maybe I should take this opportunity to start my own small business so that One Day I can employ people overseas at pennies per hour and become a 1%er.

Great idea, Nancy. Then you also great those tax breaks for not hiring Americans, some one should have thought of that.

Maybe we could reach out to the plumbers union, Angelika? A little tinkering and we would be laughing for months.

Hey Kit, if I remember currently, weren't all those Watergate men called "plumbers"?

I was of the understanding that the Congress was full of 'human waste' prior to any pipes bursting.

The timing of the break was incredible and so perfect. They got a taste of we the voters think of them. Too bad the taste won't last beyond the first shower to clean up. Score - pipe & voters 1; congress - 0.

Bravo!!!! Ahhh the scatological quality of this piece is delightful. Generally boys and men have a greater appreciation for humor of this sort. Swift wrote a number of scatological pieces that I thought were humorous and revolting at the same time, but this piece made me roar! I will share it with everyone in my family! I'm sure we will laugh about it for days to come. Thank you, Kit! This was more grand fun. ; )

Thanks for the laughs, Kit! Oh, the pictures in my mind! While there are a dozen or so members of Congress I would be happy to lend a hand to, and even spray off and invite home for dinner.....the rest can stay covered with the excrement they definitely deserve. (Of course I'm sure they'd blame it all on Obama).

Well, we could wish it were true. However our National Debt does not need that clean-up price tag.
Thanks for the humor.

Now that's KARMA.

What they've been sending to the American people has come right back to them.

I wish I could send messages. I can't. But I'm probably going to put the article on an ecard and send it to all my Care2 friends.

I LUV IT!!!!

I shouldn't, but I do.

Thank you,
Zee

The picture looks contrived. Did this really happen? If so Congress gets what it deserves!
