More About The Raisins

Out of my own strange sense of curiousity, I followed up on the post about government contracts, more specifically the contract regarding raisins. Here's what I've come up with.

While the title of the RFP is simple, the full-blown title is not. The official name? Feasibility of Insuring Dried-On-Vine Raisin Production Method and Evaluation of the Raisin Crop Insurance Program Design. Also someone actually sat down and published something called the Raisin Loss Adjustment Standards Handbook. Bet this guy was popular in college. He probably roomed with the guy who wrote the Raisin Crop Insurance Program Design report.

These are your tax dollars at work, folks. Be proud!

I really wish I could get a government job or contract. People who work for the government get more days off than anyone else I know, plus they get paid a hell of a lot more for less work, a lot of the time.

"Pssst. Hey, CIA guy. I have a hammer I can sell you cheap. Only $1000."

$10 says the guy who wrote the "Raisin Loss Adjustment Standards Handbook" is a virgin!
