Sen. Lautenberg Replaces 'Workingman' With 'Wonkering'
By Alberto McRobotface
WASHINGTON—In an effort to honor the popular 1950s novel, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) replaced “Workingman’ with “Wonkering” in an effort to honor the working class during the Great Depression of the 1930s. “If you take a good, hard look at how the working class was treated in the 1930s, I think you’ll be amazed at how many were actually going out the door and getting the American people on their feet,” said Booker, who noted that “Workingman” was an unfair, exploitative portrayal of the working classes’ plight, while “Wonkering’ was a heartwarming account of a working-class family in its midst. “It’s easy to caricature the working class in the ’30s.” At press time, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) was attempting to convince his colleagues to adopt his personal brand of politics.
