Perhaps the Saddest Shutdown Photo You’ll Ever See

Posted by   + Show Post

Poor kid. Obama ruined his day.
Check it out:

A picture of a small child in a monkey costume is quickly becoming the unofficial symbol of the government shutdown.

The photo went viral after it got posted to Reddit and then was shared on Twitter by Time magazine’s Alex Fitzpatrick, who called it “the absolute saddest #shutdown photo you will ever see.”

In the photo, the young child holds onto the locked gates of Washington’s National Zoo, which is part of the federal Smithsonian Institution. Above his head is a sign that says, “The Zoo is temporarily closed.”

The zoo also attracted national attention at the beginning of the shutdown when the budget impasse prompted its popular “panda cam” to go dark.

 Why doesn't that kid go get a gang of his little friends all dressed in animal costumes, crash through the gates on their tricycles and defy the shut down?

You know at first glance that would seem to be your very first good idea.

However, you are overlooking the fact that by doing that they would simply receive the scorn of the media.

What they should do, is all get together and make OCCUPY The ZOO signs, trash the place, Shit on the sidewalks, rape each other and spread kiddie diseases around.

Then the media would herald these kids as the next generation of visionaries.
