There’s an old adage: Nothing screams comedy like line-item contract bid awards.
That is not a true statement. That was a joke. And it wasn’t funny.
The tedium of local government contracts – particularly, on the line-item level – doesn’t leave an audience in peals of uncontrollable, full-body-heave, bladder-evacuative laughter. It doesn’t inspire the mirth or hysteria or even mild bemusement.
