The Favor Factory

Thanks for sharing this!

Despite reports of decline in the US manufacturing sector, business at The Favor Factory is brisk. The company is gearing up to accommodate a rush of new orders for its sweet, juicy rewards.

The Favor Factory is a Washington-based manufacturing firm that produces earmarks and other tasty treats for politicians to dole out to supporters. The company has been in operation for more than two centuries and shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, statistics indicate output has increased 6,000% over the past forty years. The Favor Factory attributes its success to a well-greased manufacturing process.

Analysts say The Favor Factory’s products are popular on both sides of the political aisle. Demand is expected to accelerate after new Congressional customers arrive in the capitol in January, and the profit outlook is rosy for the short, intermediate and long-term.

Critics believe The Favor Factory benefits from a monopoly on political treats, and that allowing the company to continue its current practices does not serve the interests of the public. They’d like to impose a moratorium on production and investigate alleged misconduct.

The Favor Factory is not overly concerned with such rhetoric, saying it has faced these charges before and has always continued doing business as usual.

“Politicians need our products,” says Corr Uption, spokesperson for The Favor Factory. “That’s not going to change.”
