In the government shutdown, all bets are off.
Whether or not you’re in favor of the plan to build the wall, you’ve gotta admit…
This really stinks for federal employees.

In lieu of traditional muzak and soft, inoffensive pop songs…
You know, the kind you normally hear at department stores and airports…
Some TSA agents are beginning to blast expletive-leaden music.

Among the “offending” songs, some have reported hearing “Sicko Mode” (Travis Scott ft. Drake) and “Lift Yourself” (that infamous “Poopty Scoop” Kanye West song).
I was in JFK at 6:30am the other day and they were playing that poopty scoop Kanye song and I felt like I was in the twilight zone

JFK is playing sicko mode we’re living in a simulation

Other artists on display have been Paramore…
the extremely weird feeling when the airport PA is blasting Paramore’s “Misery Business” like it’s a super hot 2007 Friday night at old JFK

And Beastie Boys…
JFK airport carousel blasting “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” at 10:30 PM is kinda alright with me.

As for disciplinary actions?
Yeah, their managers aren’t getting paid either.
You know. On account of the shutdown?
So there’s probably no point in going into work.
