Jobs created or saved that may cause you to burst a blood vessel

From comes a list of the most ridiculous uses of stimulus funds.

Such genius job-creating/saving projects include:

  1. $9.3 million to fund design and construction of robotic bees.
  2. $427,000 to design better computer games for the elderly.
  3. $712,000 grant to develop "machine generated humor."

Well, I guess any replacement for David Letterman would be an improvement. Actually, this is a redundant project. Machine generated humor was invented a long time ago, though. See for yourself.
