The government spent:
- $140,000 to study pig feces in China
- $100,000 on a videogame about aliens saving planets from climate change
- $88,000 to send the comedy show “Make Chai, not War” to India
- $55,000 on a study to find the link between immaturity and heavy drinking in your 30s

My all-time favorite study was “Why do shirt collars fray?” A pundit responded, “Because we pay so much in taxes for stupid studies that we can’t afford to buy new shirts.”
