The Census

With all of the blathering about the census, federal funds, and the "omg fill it out or the government will have to spend money sending someone to your house to get the info" hysteria, it frankly amuses the hell out of me as I am out and about to see plastic bags plastered with "Census 2010" in red swinging in the breeze on doorknobs and fences in the country.

At houses that are boarded up, overgrown with weeds.

It's tempting, oh so tempting, to take one of those bags, fill it out saying that three ghosts live there, and send it in.

Incorporeal Americans? Bodily Challenged?

Ectoplasmically Talented?

What do you think?

Mark them as members of the Dunmanifestin Tribe and get yourself a casino.

Most importantly, have they registered to vote?

I dunno. With the right answers, and a grant application, you might get a few years of free college. Just claim you're here illegally and are afraid of prosecution.

Just return them "5" & race "American".

It's gotta help somehow...

No, they might turn them into voting Democrats.

Incorporeal Americans works for me... :-)

I see those bags on empty houses.

I figure that now is your chance to put the people in Baca County whom you think should live there.

But "Incorporeal" for the race question might be good too.
