The Best Damn Government Shutdown Response

Last weekend, I went on a honeymoon of sorts with my bride of 12 years.  We went up to the North Shore of Lake Superior. One of the days, we just drove to no place in particular and happened across a National Park campground with an outhouse - way up on the Gunflint Trail.

This was the sign we encountered at the outhouse.

This sign was posted by National Park staff and reads:
This Campground is CLOSED due to the lapse in federal government funding. This campground or facility will reopen once Congress restores funding. If you need to dispose of waste during this lapse in funding, please travel at least 150 feet from waterways and recreation sites, dig a hole at least 6 inches deep, and bury your waste.
A humorous visitor then vandalized the sign and wrote the following:
OR BAG IT (sic) and mail to Washington
After laughing ourselves to tears, we then noticed a brown paper lunch sack on the ground.


Well done, citizen.  Well done.
