image for Federal Employee Fired For Making Spelling Mistake On Placard
Mistakes are quite popular at protests

A federal employee who took part in a demonstration against the ongoing shutdown of the government, has been fired for making a spelling error and a catastrophic grammatical mistake on a placard he was holding.

The man, John Typo, of Albany, NY, was protesting against the childish tit-for-tat actions of politicians, whose petulance has meant the shutdown has lasted more than a month, leaving 800,000 federal workers without a penny to scratch their arses with.

The placard Typo was holding, made all by himself, read:

STOP THE NONSENCE
REOPEN A GOVERNMENT OFFICES

Typo is a Motor Vehicle Operator in New York City, and his boss, Ron Gaffer, said:

"It's the same for all of us federal people. We are all going through a hard time. But you don't see others resorting to careless grammar and schoolboy-standard spelling. He's gone - when the shutdown's over, that is!"

The horror of Typo's mistake can be seen here:

The shutdown is the longest in US history, and may stretch until Christmas.

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