And the original "I Love Chinese Food" music video from Patric Wilson, the creator of Rebecca Black's 2011 train wreck "Friday."

Washington Monument Syndrome

"Washington Monument Syndrome" is a political tactic used in the United States by government agencies when faced with budget cuts or a government shutdown. The tactic entails cutting the most visible or appreciated service provided by the government, from popular services such as national parks and libraries to valued public employees such as teachers and firefighters. This is done to gain support for tax increases that the public would otherwise be against. The name derives from the National Park Service's alleged habit of saying that any cuts would lead to an immediate closure of the wildly popular Washington Monument. (source)
