A few months ago, I heard the rebroadcast of an expert's testimony before a Congressional Committee. The Committee was receiving testimony about Global Warming.
The expert began his testimony in this way: "Gentlemen and Gentleladies, it is a privilege to be here today. It is ironic we are discussing Global Warming on one of the coldest days in the history of Washington, D.C. In fact, it is so cold that as I walked around this town I noticed you Congressmen have your hands in your own pockets."
The Congressional Committee didn't laugh, but I did. If you don't think that's funny, you are not a taxpayer yet.
