Government Shutdown Leads To World's Saddest Photo!

| Filed under: PolitikSad SadZooCute Kidz

A cute kid is sad that the government shutdown closed the zoo!

And, we thought the loss of the panda live feed was the harshest thing to come out of the government shutdown!

But, this picture pretty sums up just how we're all truly affected.

As we all know, the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. is "temporarily closed" because of the government shutdown.

While the men and women on Capitol Hill are stubbornly hashing out their petty bipartisan squabbles, not only have thousands of people been without work and pay for almost two weeks now, but as you can see by the (above) photo, it's greatly affecting the children.

And, we couldn't be more depressed.

It's just a picture of a gate, blocking the entrance to the zoo, with a big sign that reads:

"The Zoo is temporarily closed."

…Beneath the sign, hanging onto the gate like a prisoner clinging to the bars of his cell, yearning to pass through them, is a young child, wearing an animal ear hat, as he stares wistfully into the distance.

Dead leaves lie motionless in front of him…..

No cute animals for you today, Billy Everytoddler.

Have you no shame, U.S. Government?? Have you no shame!!!

    Our government = a bunch of crooks who line their own pockets. Sorry lil sweety that you didn't get to go to the zoo.

    We don't need your melodramatic photo description, you idiot queer, when we can see the fucking thing with our own two eyes. So someone decided to pose a kid that way to tug at heartstrings. You know what? Life is tough all over, and if the little bastard didn't get to go to the zoo today, he'll live. I'm more concerned about what that darkie Nazi in the WH is doing to our country than whether or not some kid goes to the fucking zoo.

    Re: MonicA – Zoos are institutes of learning and research. Animals have no brains. They dont know there is a "wild natural habitat out there they are missing". They have no real self awareness. So, we learn endless terabits of information about them while they couldnt care less that they are in a cage. Human knowledge is worth that sacrifice on the part of the animals. Its A sacrifice animals dont know they are making. And if we were to say to zoo lions "Time to go back to the wild. Pack your bags. you will have to hunt for food (and maybe starve). Kill male cubs so as not to rival you for mates. No more medicine. You'll have to deal with fiery stinging ants, paranoid tribal people with spears, drought, gangrene, ticks, buffalo ferocity. Impala horns. So. Ready?"…. "ROOOOAAAARRRRR"… that means "waaaaaaaaa" in lion.

    Re: Aly – What's cruel w what Monica said?You probably have no idea of how those animals in the zoo really get treated.

    Re: sontonwontonFOOOOD – "Animals have no brains." You just won your argument with that sir, a tip of my hat to you.

    Re: sontonwontonFOOOOD – But if animals have no brains (WTF!) How would they respond to that question?

    World's saddest photo? I don't think so. A little kid who is dressed and fed can't go to the zoo, while there are millions of children who don't have clothes or meals and they certainly don't go to the zoo.

    Re: The Truthinator – Hmm I guess my first attempt at this wasn't appropriate. I'll try and clean it up. You are an offensive twit, crawl out from your red neck bigoted rock and wake up! Your way of thinking is outdated and will one day get you in serious sh*t. My true feelings and choice of words are far too 'colourful' to express on here.

    I feel really bad for folks who came from overseas and now cannot visit Yosemite, Grand Canyon, etc. Yes there are nice state parks, but not quite the same.
    On topic, I agree with repealing Obamacare, I cannot afford it. Right now I have a very nice healthcare plan which is partially government funded and costs me nothing. It is an HMO, but the directory for doctors in LA and Orange counties is an inch thick.

    Ha, ha!! little spoiled brat…lol!!!
