Bartleby the Congressperson!

This just in from Colombia:

A bill to financially punish chronic absenteeism in the Legislature died due to…….

(wait for it)

…… not enough legislators being in session to debate the bill!!

 

So many ideas here.

  1. Why can’t the US legislature be more like this?
  2. Have they never heard of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”?
  3. Bartleby the Congressperson!! (I prefer not to).
  4. Joseph Heller must be laughing his butt off.

 

Kudos, Colombia. Well-played.
