If you haven’t noticed, I appreciate gallows humor. So when a very loyal reader (seriously, she’s been with me since the WordPress days) sent me this link, I had to share. Had to. It was imperative.
What does one wear during a shutdown? A t-shirt emblazoned with your status, of course.
Are you essential? Tell the world how much you matter! You may not be getting paid, but somebody somewhere says that you are important!
You can also find customized t-shirts for House employees, Senate employees and the employees of the different Cabinet departments.
Are you non-essential? Well, your Boss may not think that you’re necessary, but the people at the bar might take pity on you if you’re wearing a non-essential tee. A few drinks, and shirt pays for itself.
Right now, the store is just selling men’s sizes. But maybe if we clamor enough, the ladies of the Hill can get a little love. YAY! Women’s sizes.
Buy one! Because heaven forbid that everyone in town not know how we were deemed. After all, D.C. is all about status.
