And I thought the peruvian congressmen didn't do a thing

While reading a digg post on the proposed amendments for the Copyright law I came upon some of the funniest comments I have seen for in a while...

"My congressperson is just involved in other important work such as:

H.CON.RES.142 : Congratulating Disneyland and the Walt Disney Company on the 50th Anniversary of the opening of Disneyland.
H.RES.498 : Supporting the goals and ideals of School Bus Safety Week.
H.R.935 : To urge the Government of Ethiopia to hold orderly, peaceful, and free and fair national elections in May 2005 and to authorize United States assistance for elections-related activities to monitor the Ethiopian national elections.
H.R.551 : To amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to direct local educational agencies to release secondary school student information to military recruiters if the student's parent provides written consent for the release, and for other purposes. (aka bill against on campus recruiting)

and my personal favorite:
H.R.1914 : To amend the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States to provide that the calculation of the duty imposed on imported cherries that are provisionally preserved does not include the weight of the preservative materials of the cherries. "

and I thought the peruvian congress was a mess!
