Louie the Lunatic
Because they’re very busy trying to avert the Fiscal Cliff, the House of Representatives voted today to ban the word “lunatic” from federal law. Interestingly, the vote to stop using this outdated word passed 398 to 1, with the lone “no” coming from Tea Party Lunatic and anchor-baby hater Rep. Louis Gohmert. Defending his lunatic vote, Gohmert said in a statement “Not only should we not eliminate the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy, we should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.” Thus marks another milestone in the House’s march towards writing all their legislation in text speak (“All medicar reMburMnts shall b paid 2 ppl n da 4m of legit chex (boobs pic)”).
Just out of curiosity, what other other banned words or phrases can Congress no longer use?
-“Slatternly Prussian Fishwives”
-“The Honorable Willard Mitt Romney”
-“That cock-juggling thunder cunt Olympia Snowe”
I could go on, but then you might suspect I was making this shit up…
