Best Government #Shutdown Images 2013 (Plus some memes for laughs)

The internet is going crazy with the whole “government shutdown thing”.

Thousands of photographs and memes have been created- here are the best ones that I’ve found.

Take a minute to peruse. Laugh, cry, scream, or sit quietly without moving.

It’s slightly humorous that they just put barricades up around monuments. Um, we can still see it…

I don’t know why but the “Scumbag Steve” memes crack me up. But not when they’re actually Scumbag Steve.

The Government is closed! Well… kinda. Only partially.

In all seriousness, the government shutdown is a big deal. Thousands of people are out of work temporarily, and the U.S. economy is suffering because Congress can’t make up their gosh-darned minds. But, my gut reaction is to make fun of the government. That’s what I do.

So, I hope you enjoyed, but please do make sure to read about the effects of the shutdown and learn about its causes.
