Your Tax Dollars At Work

Well, at least we know that in Governmentese when they say ‘setback’ they mean “waste of twenty years and Gawd knows how many dollars”

DENVER – A 20-year government effort to restore the population of an endangered native trout in Colorado has made little progress because biologists have been stocking some of the waterways with the wrong fish, a new study says.
Biologists called the finding a setback and a potential black eye but said there is still hope for restoring the greenback cutthroat trout because at least four pure populations of the fish have been identified.

There is, sadly, no hope for restoring our greenbacks.

  1. I guess sometimes you have to figure out when to fish or cut bait.
    It’s not that I object to my tax money restoring greenback trout. I object to my tax money being wasted by people who THOUGHT they were doing that.

    Naturally, the taxpayers are left on the hook.

    No, just carping about government waste.

    Just trying to be a ray of hope before I retreat to my lofty perch to contemplate life and chant my manta.

  9. Just don’t sing “Salmon Chanted Evening”

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    I was actually thinking of doing that for my next gig at the Count Bass-ie Theater.

  11. Mr. Bingley says:

    And people tell me I’m perfectly in tuna when I sing.

  12. Mr. Bingley says:

    They can’t fathom why I abandoned that career. I tell them I just wasn’t in the same league as some of the others, so don’t try to lure me back.

  13. But I bet you do a great rendition of “Mahi Funny Valentine”.

  14. “…And people tell me I’m perfectly in tuna when I sing.”
    I thought they were asking if there was a sturgeon in the house, since someone sounded depthsperately eel.

  15. Well, he did have a bit of a haddock…
