Your Tax Dollars at Work

The local paper ran a story today about FEMA looking into hurricane evacuee scams.* A team goes around the city trying to determine if these folks are still eligible for bucks to stay in hotels.
Among the reports were a brothel being run out of a room as well as a meth lab.* Part of the process is a face to face interview, and from these interviews has emerged a true pearl of the ages.
FEMA Dude: Do you have a job?
Male Evacuee: No and I'm not looking for one due to my disability.
FEMA Dude: What disability?
Male Evacuee: I have "anal glaucoma"
FEMA Dude: What's that?
Male Evacuee:* I can't see my ass working.

Nobody could make this stuff up
