An Equal Opportunity Hump Day

Sometimes, a piece of news is so retarded, so delightfully jam-packed with half-assed drooling moronitude, that I can hardly hear myself type over my own squeals of idiotic joy.
I have to share this with someone.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City has never hired a female bridge painter even though qualified women have applied for the job, the U.S. Attorney's office said in a discrimination lawsuit filed in federal court on Monday. Since 1997, 56 people, including three qualified women, have applied for 13 jobs as bridge painters, according to the complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney's office, adding that all 13 jobs were awarded to men.

A travesty. A TRAVESTY. A clear-cut example of gender discrimination, or I'm not a microcephalic twit.

Here are some more jobs that women have been unfairly barred from:

-Bull Elephant 'Milker'
-Pesticide taste tester
-Roofer
-Roadkill recovery & disposal
-Cowboy
-Lumberjack
-Forward for the Chicago Bulls

(I'd like to formally apologize to all the lovely women out there who have aggressively pursued careers that have been traditionally occupied by men named 'Booger.'
Way to smash that glass ceiling! You're doing a great job. Please don't hurt me.)
