Who knew skyrocketing national debt could be super-fabulous?

Apparently Bankrupting America, part of the “nonpartisan nonprofit” project Public Notice, which focuses on government policies putting a damper on the economy. The new video, titled “Crazy Washington Honey Badgers,” sure is fierce.

Narrated by Randall of the YouTube sensation “The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger,” Washington Honey Badgers takes a similar approach to explaining the debt crisis and the recent showdown in Congress. To transcribe even a few of the lines would ruin the enjoyment. Suffice it to say that the 2.25-minute video features more than a few phrases that are very easy to catch.

If you’re still feeling curious after catching up on your economic current events and want to dive into some literature, check out Sassy Gay Friend, who gives advice to such tragic characters as Ophelia sans Hamlet, Juliet sans Romeo and — by far the best — The Giving Tree sans Shel Silverstein.
