Dammit! Now the feds will have to come up with something even sillier to stay #1!

When I first saw this I had to do a search to make sure it wasn’t a parody. That happens a lot lately. 🙁

Venezuela Creates ‘Vice Ministry Of Supreme Social Happiness’ To Combat Sadness

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Americans may insist on the right to pursue happiness, but Venezuela now has a formal government agency in charge of enforcing it.

President Nicolas Maduro says the new Vice Ministry of Supreme Social Happiness will coordinate all the “mission” programs created by the late President Hugo Chavez to alleviate poverty.

Wags had a field day Friday, waxing sarcastic on Twitter about how happy they felt less than 24 hours after the announcement.

Some things just don’t need any elaboration from me…

    Methinks any government with a ministry of happines is double-plus ungood. I’m afraid we are living in interesting times.

    Why, pretty soon we’ll be in utopia, for sure. Perfect health care in America, perfect happiness in Venezuela, and I assume the French will have the perfect 110% taxation down pat pretty soon to create the perfect economy. What am I missing? Oh yeah… We’ll then all become one happy family under the UN and get to throw away all the ikky guns and stuff…

    Sounds like hell to me.
