GSA head’s stomach-stapling and the FDA’s scatological alert (quote of the week)

It’s only Wednesday, and we’re already itching to hand out awards for the loopiest quote of the week. Here are two strong contenders:

“Today we the government are having our stomach stapled.” --GSA Administrator Martha Johnson, using a rather graphic metaphor about the budgetary “diet” her agency is on, as quoted by the Federal Times, and noted by our colleague Ed O’Keefe.

“The Straight Poop on Kids and Diarrhea” --The scatological title of a “consumer update” by the Food and Drug Administration. Um...thanks, glad we weren’t eating lunch just yet.
