As you all know, this is Census 2010 and the government wants you to "get your fair share" of the money due you. I don't know why they are asking about my race, whether I own a house, have a mortgage, etc. but to bring some levity to this decennial PITA (pain the ass), here is a SNL skit I can't resist sharing with readers:
We folk in southern Illinois have to do a better job: Chicago counts dead people at election time, so why can't we "think outside the box"? This SNL skit provides some helpful advice.
FYI: One of the witty documents in my Race and Liberty in America book is by Ben Wattenberg, who listed himself as "Human." "So sue me," he writes. See http://raceandliberty.blogspot.com
Alas, no census boxes for Bobcats. . .
(Cougar would have been a better double-entendre. but I still enjoy SNL even when it isn't perfect. LOL).
PS: The best cameo by Christopher Walken has to be Fatboy Slim "Weapon of Choice."
