Tired of the shutdown, and perhaps a little tipsy because the dysfunction of top legislators has pushed you to the bottle? Not to worry, the website above serves as your personal stomping ground to voice all your inner aggravations to a random lawmaker, says USA Today on Oct. 11.
How does it work? Simply type in your telephone number, hit send and wait to be connected with a random office of a random Congressman, and then let it rip.
The brains behind the website, a man named Rich (who also serves as the voice of the drunken, slurred intro), said the idea was born out of tales the press told of lawmakers, meeting into the evening hours, who clearly had been drinking.
“The press who were in the galleries of the House could literally smell the fumes of alcohol rising off the members as they were debating,” said Rich. “And we thought if they can be boozing it up as they were making decisions about out future then we can be when we are telling them what to do.”
Thus far, the site has processed approximately 1,000 calls an hour through their system and to the Capitol.
If you can’t come up with your own mini rant (perhaps because your mind has some wee slippage from your nips at the bottle), the site has some choice ideas, some of which were user-suggested. Each of the suggestions has a hyperlink to the news story it was based on.
