The Funniest Quote

THIS has got to be the funniest quote we've seen in a long time. It comes from today's (Thursday) sun-times article by our favorite investigative reporters Tim Novak & Steve Warmbir (the Hired Truck guys) accompanied by Art Golab. The article is about the recently discovered scam of homeowners paying more, sometimes much more, than 50% of the replacement cost of their sidewalks:
  • But city officials insist no one should have assumed the city would pay half under the 50/50 sidewalk program.
Let's read that again, shall we?
  • But city officials insist no one should have assumed the city would pay half under the 50/50 sidewalk program.
Excuse us? No one should have assumed? Then why the FU$% would you name it the "50/50 Program?" Because the homeowners thought they'd pay 60%? 75%? Give us a FU$%^&* break. Someone was making money off of this BIG TIME. Warmbir and Novak even find a whole sh&*load of clout heavies who were paying less than 50% (some as low as 2%) of the replacement costs of their sidewalks. We'd say "unbelievable" but it really isn't. It really makes us amazed that the $100 million dollar hole in richie's budget isn't about $200 million dollars bigger.

That's not possible. There is no such thing as corruption in this City, and if there is, the Mayor doesn't know about it.

Why are the two highest areas of the scam also the two biggest neighborhoods of city workers? Little Dickey just can't get enough of stickin' it to us. You have a hard time finding a sidewalk that isn't pristine in Englewood, yet for some reason they don't have to pay for theirs. I love this socialist government that redistributes wealth by punishing you for hard work and responsible living. God forbid Shorty G trips and hurts himself running from the po-po.

Let's see here, I live in the 41st Ward and we were overchareged $54,000 dollars by the city in what is no longer a 50/50 program but a fair share program. Guess we up here in 41 are paying everyones share. Daley I hope you have such a grabber that your chest blows apart u Irish cocksucker inbred motherfucker.
