Recipe for Disaster

Thanks for sharing this!

Do you have a better recipe for Disaster than the dish recently cooked up in Washington DC? If so, you’re invited to submit your recipe for the First Annual Sequester Blowout, which will be held at Government’s Inn on March 31.

Government’s Inn is asking for simple, creative recipes that showcase ways legislators can improve the current recipe for Disaster, which is largely unpalatable.

“We’ve been told there’s too much Mayhem and Doomsaying,” says N. Titlement, spokesperson for the Inn. “We’d like to tone it down a bit.”

Any American citizen can participate by submitting an original recipe for Disaster no later than March 15. Ingredients should include at least six ounces of inflammatory speech, half a cup of hyperbolic warnings, three tablespoons of dire predictions, and one package of generic spending cuts. The winner will be invited to provide, prepare, and share the Disaster at the Sequester Blowout.

Chefs who have questions should contact the management of Government’s Inn.
