Dumbest Political Issue of The Day

In what city was the hamburger created?

MADISON — A Texas lawmaker says she has no plans to back away from her proposed resolution declaring Athens, Texas, as the hamburger's birthplace.

"It's not just our claim and what we say," said Republican Rep. Betty Brown. "(The history) is very well documented."

Rep. Tom Nelson, D-Kaukauna, said on Tuesday learned of Brown's resolution and said he plans to introduce his own resolution declaring Seymour as the hamburger's true home."Seymour is the hamburger capital, period," he said Tuesday. "Texas must be confused with Manwich."

The history of the hamburger is somewhat murky....

Newton and Leibnitz invented the calculus independently of each other at pretty much the exact same time. This is well accepted and fairly common knowledge. But for some reason, these two idiot politicians can't comprehend the possibility that people in two different crappy cities came up with the idea of putting grilled meat on a bun at around the same time. And it's up to the legislative process to figure it out. Awesome.

  • What's sad is that if one of them is successful, they'll win more votes than if they had done something actually useful.
