I’m prepared

Steve Sviggum, the Republican leader in the state senate, has informed Minnesotans that they must be mentally prepared for a government shutdown. Dear oh dear, whatever shall we do? I’ve asked Big Chilly and the White Buffalo to behave in a surly and intentionally uninformative manner whenever I call them, and on my part, I’ll be asking pointless and prying questions of all my family members in trying to fill in for those government employees sitting at home.

Any other ideas?
