Balancing the budget with the Harper Government panty auction

With a rather large deficit to tackle in a March 22nd budget that will be critical to the future of the Conservative government, people have been wondering just how Jim Flaherty intends to rein-in the bottom line while still finding billions for prisons, stealth fighters and corporate tax cuts.

Well, deep within the recesses of the Public Works department, the key to the secret Conservative deficit reduction plan has been revealed: they're auctioning off surplus panties.

Yes, that's right. With bidding starting at just $30, you could own 17 pairs of surplus government panties. They're all size medium and they're being sold as is. All sales are final. And, most disturbingly, they're described as "like new."

And as you can see from the pictures here, we're not talking government granny panties. No ma'am. These are sexy surplus government panties. One of them even says sexy, so there you go.

If you'd like to get your hands on the goods before bidding, they're available for inspection on Wednesday afternoons at the government panty warehouse in Ottawa.

So do your bit for the nation, and help Jim Flaherty get this deficit under control by buying these Government of Canada -- no, I'm sorry, by buying these Harper Government panties.

Stay away from the stretched ones... they were worn by the supreme leader (not Diana Ross!) and his minister of heritage!

I e-mailed the contact, Scott Endicott, to enquire if he could get the PMO to toss in the Merry Widow and fishnets.
