Got shutdown woes? Why not drunk dial congress?

The US government shutdown is finally over, but while the chaos was continuing angry drunk diallers in the US got a legitimate outlet for their frustrations with a website that let them call to vent their frustrations. The site was for furloughed workers, those being forced to work for free or just "fed up at Capitol Hill".

There was also a handy page of links to rants about various things to do with the shutdown - and recipes for the drinks you'll make to work up dutch courage for your call.

Anyone fancy a Bad Representative or a Sleepy Senator on the rocks?
