A Lesson in Irony.
The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest
amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever to 46 million people.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S.
Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."
Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will grow
dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
Thus ends today's lesson in irony.
