Satire Alert: Stimulus Bill Will Give $160 Billion to Roiling Mass of Snakes

The satirists and parodists of the Onion strike again with this bit of fake radio news:

Well, why the heck not? Every other special interest wants to grab a piece of the pork-tastic stimulus bill passed by our illustrious Congress. In fact, how about you grab a piece for yourself? I want a government handout so I can play Mario Kart Wii all day instead of doing any real work. Besides, engaging in real work only means that I get my paycheck taxed to death. MEH.

Oh, and here's a thought: a huge part of the stimulus bill goes to government agencies, bureaucrats, and such, so maybe the Onion IS right after all and the cash is going straight into the Indiana Jones-like snake pit called Big Government.
