Some things I learned today while judging Student Congress

With apologies to Jim, whose playbook I'm ripping off...

"If they choose to be anorexic or a bulimic, that's their business."

"A federal employee is someone who just...works, basically?"

And then, as we're about to adjourn:

--"Wait! Point of order! Can we extend the day by three minutes so someone who hasn't given a speech all day can give a speech?"
--"Absolutely! All in favor of extending the day?" (Unanimous ayes.) "Great! Now, who would like to give that speech?"
--(Long, awkward silence)

Good thing I wasn't there or this kid would have had his or her ears boxed.
