Crying over spilled milk and other stories

Partially in response to the BP oil spill of last year, the EPA is apparently instituting rules to treat milk spills, as milk also contains oils.

The mission to make everyone safe no matter what the cost is back on track.

Here at the World Complex we believe in being prepared. Although the current rules are proposed for American farmers only, it is only a matter of time before the rules are extended to other countries and to households, where most milk spills actually occur.

Therefore we have acquired a Dedicated Omnivorous Guardian (DOG) to clean up household milk spills. The DOG practically begs to carry out his duties.

Elsewhere, the EPA has recently decided that perhaps there is too much fluoride in drinking water.

I smell a government admission of guilt coming on. Maybe the US government will have to pay a settlement to Americans.

The World Complex humbly  proposes a democratic, across-the-board settlement of $10,000 per person for all US citizens.

In order to pay for this (the US deficit being too large as it is), we humbly propose a $11,000 head tax on all US citizens (the extra being used to cover the costs of administering the program). It will be painful, but imagine how delightful it will be to receive the above settlement!
