Rat dies after biting Congressman.

When a member of the United States Senate screamed her head off "I just got bit by a rat!" during a speech yesterday, it became obvious to all that the rat problem in Washington DC was totally out of control.

Apparently, the Washington shutdown had set an army of rats loose on the city.

"There are always rats here in Washington", stated Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. "But these are actual rats.

Will there be another shutdown, this time to try to exterminate all the rats in Washington?

"If so, it will take time", stated McConnell. "Probably till the elections next year."

Meanwhile Harry Reid of Nevada told the press, "We can't even get rid of the bed bugs. How are we going to get rid of all the rats?"

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul stated that there need not be another shutdown.

"Rats don't bother me. I'm immune. One of the tests for becoming a true member of the "Tea Party" is that you had to eat a big rat. They're afraid of me."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
