The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be
distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47.5 million people as
of the most recent figures available in April 2013.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us
"Please Do Not Feed the Animals."

Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not
learn to take care of themselves."

Thus ends today's two lessons in irony.

I am very tired of these political statements posted in Jokes and Riddles. There is nothing funny about the working poor, disabled and children going hungry in America while corporations suck up subsidies and pay such low wages that their employees qualify for help in buying food. By the way those are PEOPLE and not animals.

What about animals in the zoos, or domesticated farm animals in barnyards and feed lots.
Sometimes it's hard to forage in inner city "zoos and feed lots".

I believe the families of the Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force and Coast Guard with a rank of E-4 or below use food stamps. I wonder how they would react to this 'joke'?

I know Tea Baggers are not real big on facts and that truthiness stuff, but, here Jim, read this. It is hilarious--a nice addendum to your joke about hungry people where you compare them to animals. It is a real laugh riot.

It is humorous or ironic only to those people who have plenty of money and can buy whatever they want at the grocery store....and thank God, not all of them.
Not a good topic for humor for the holiday season.

This comic, unlike the original post, actually is funny:

Well, I don't know if funny is the correct word... more like choosing to laugh at something to keep from crying!

Not really,but I did see the "Irony" of you coming to the defense of women given your track record of mysogynistic posts on this forum.

i am an equal opportunity insulter[to those that deserve it] and there is nothing mysoginistic about any of those insults. if certain people choose to read that into them,then they have the problem, not me.
