The Onion: Congressmen Demand Passage of “The IHOP Should Stay Open All Night Act”

Here is The Onion-SPAN2 satirically reporting on a “hearing” for the emergency bill H.R. 323 (under the provisions of the National Emergency Legislation Act) that has been proposed by a bipartisan group of congressmen, “The IHOP Should Stay Open All Night So That We Can Get Some Pancakes Act.” Submitted the previous night at 3:33 a.m., the bill would require the payment for monorail transportation from the Black Sheep Pub to all IHOP restaurants in Washington, D.C., and includes a $2 million earmark to study whether pancake and waffle batter are the same thing. The Committee on House Administration is chaired by Rep. Robert Ingersol.
