Check Please!

This has to be, hands down, the most bizarre thing I've ever reported on!

Are you ready for the Bizarro World Report?

The Committee On Oversight and Government Reform reports that the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is paying it's own employees to return stolen government property!!

"Angry employees at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing say the cash-strapped agency is giving taxpayer money to government employees to return government printers. At least 534 mostly senior bureau employees have individual printers to ensure that sensitive documents -- related mostly to personnel issues -- don't end up in the wrong hands. But now the agency wants them back and plans to give employees a $75 gift card to turn them over."

HUH??!!!! Who is the bright boy that thought up this little scam?

I can't make this stuff up folks. This is so wrong I don't have enough words to describe it.

That is just bizarre, but of course, it's our government, so I can't say I'm shocked. But I can say I'm DISGUSTED!!

By the way, my word verification is "dingling" which immediately made me think of ding-a-ling which might be another name for the elected One. Heh!
