“The only thing I fear more than the government shutting down is the government staying open”

"The only thing I fear more than the government shutting down is the government staying open” is a jocular saying that has been cited on Twitter since April 7, 2011. The saying originated from this ecard.

And you can always send someone a government shutdown e-card. Some of the funniest:

(A postcard): Greetings from the U.S. Capitol building: Old, white and immovable, just like the people who occupy it.

I want to do to your body what Congress is doing to government employees.
