Our Friday Funny is brought to you this week by a band of joksters who have published a satirical take on the latest political and policy news out of Harrisburg. (Our thanks to a loyal blog reader who passed it on to us.)
Some of the better nuggets from Not Patriot News (at the appropriately named http://pennjive.com):
- Sen. Jeff Piccola is proposing legislation to expand the school voucher concept to include Pennsylvanians trapped in failing families.
- A mid-level worker at the state Department of Health is stunned to learn that her state job is not a pathway to fabulous riches.
- Local NPR station WITF decides to drop the "I" in its name to appeal to a younger demographic.
- After drafting the Governor's budget speech, a top speechwriter is struck with a rare illness that afflicts writers of overwrought clichés.
There's more at the web site, so check it out. Very funny stuff — and a nice way to celebrate this April Fool's Day Harrisburg-style.
