LOS ANGELES – Soon after VA Secretary Robert A. McDonald and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti announced they would not be able to end Veteran homelessness in Los Angeles by the end of the year as promised, it was rumored they were spotted at a local drinking establishment celebrating.
The two seemed overly joyous as they downed Margaritas nearly as fast as the bartender could make them while hugging and high-fiving each other and buying rounds of drinks for amused patrons.
Fascinated by their enthusiastic behavior, the bartender asked what they were celebrating and the Mayor gloated: “We just finished a jigsaw puzzle and it only took us two months to complete.”
“Two months!” blurted the bartender. “That’s ridiculous! It shouldn’t take anyone that long!”
Incensed by the bartender’s dismissive attitude, VA Secretary McDonald brashly boasted: “Hey dude, the puzzle box said ‘two to four years.’ “
And now you know the rest of the story.
God Bless America and the Veterans Revolution!
