GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN AND NOBODY KNEW IT!
Record-smashing snowfall has crippled the Capitol, causing the government to shut down. Bureaucrats, stranded in their homes, had no choice but to cash in their sick days to weather the storm.

What if we weaned ourselves to the point that Government would only convene for two weeks each year to consider important matters?
