Government Shuts Down, #ShutdownPickupLines Makes Things Less Sad
The government shutdown today leaving hundreds of thousands of federal employees laid off without pay. This shutdown is going to have serious repercussions for the country and those employed by it. Naturally, when things got real and the state of the union felt hopeless, people on twitter created a hilarious hashtag to lighten the mood.
#ShutdownPickupLines are tweets about what you would say to your fellow American who has perhaps been affected by this horrid situation.
