In honor of our government pulling it together and getting the country back up and running last night, Jimmy Kimmel went to the streets of Los Angeles to discuss the events of the day with the locals. While everyone’s opinions on the subject differed a little bit, they were all insightful and well thought-out and completely reflective of the fine education system we have here in this country.
Just kidding! Can you imagine if everyday Americans understand what was happening in their own country? Everything would be so topsy-turvy and upside-down. Why, I bet if Americans understand America more, we’d have the kind of country where Dads got canceled five minutes into the premiere and Arrested Development lived on forever. And that’d be a shame because then we wouldn’t know where all the idiots were hanging out between 8:00 – 8:30 on Tuesday nights.
Thankfully that’s not the case! The people interviewed on Kimmel had no clue what they were talking about when asked how they felt about the shutdown coming to an end. I mean, they definitely recognized keywords in the question like “shutdown” and “furlough,” but they also failed to recognize the fact that other keywords, like “ceiling fan,” did not belong in the same sentence.
Why were ceiling fans involved at all? Because Jimmy Kimmel. The question he asked was, “do you think Republicans did the right thing allowing Obamacare to move forward, even though the impending debt crisis could defund additional sequester furloughs and national parks and default ceiling fans?” It’s a completely nonsensical question that makes absolutely no sense — and therefore people answered it seriously. So watch, enjoy and know that even when the government goes all wackadoodle on us, we’ll always have Jimmy Kimmel and his confusing questions.
