  1. $16 muffins, $8 coffee served in Justice audit

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As the U.S. government grapples to find ways to trim the bloated federal deficit, a new report suggests officials might start with cutting out $16 muffins and $10 cookies.

    "We found the Department (of Justice) spent $16 on each of the 250 muffins served at an August 2009 legal conference in Washington," said a DOJ Office of Inspector General report released on Tuesday.

    I can get a muffin from the coffee shop, that tastes fantastic for about a dollar, imagine how fucking good a 16$ muffin must taste. :D

    If the muffins were infact made with weed, it would atleast go a long ways in explaining the erratic, and idiotic behaviour down at the DOJ.
