Money Down The Drain

All of this in 2011! The government just LOVES to piss away the taxpayers' money!

10. $764,825 for a study on how college students use cell phones and social media  [College students abuse cell phones and social media and then flunk out from lack of studying]

9. $136,555 for teachers to retrace Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales in England

8. $55,660 on butter packaging

7. $606,000 for a study about online dating  [People need to figure out their own strategies for their own screwing parties]

5. $48,700 towards the Second Annual Hawaii Chocolate Festival

4. $147,138 to build a magic museum

3. $96,000 on iPads for kindergarteners  [It took years for Mrs. AOW, a taxpayer, years to save up for my iPad.  I sure as hell was older than a kindergartener when I got MY iPad]

2. $175,587 for a study on the link between cocaine and the mating habits of quail  [Where are these coke-snorting quails?]

1. $130,987 for dragon robots  [What are these things?]

Hey, this is why the Left hates capitalism. It "quantifies" their collective stupidity.

For $764,825.00, I would have told the feds everything they wanted to know about college kids using cell phones. I've been through ti four times.
