Poll: Cockroaches And Nickelback More Popular Than Congress

By Robert Paul Reyes

When asked if they had a higher opinion of either Congress or a series of despised things voters opined that they had a higher opinion of root canals, replacement refs, and head lice, the rock band Nickelback and cockroaches.


Congress did manage to beat out telemarketers, John Edwards, the Kardashianss, gonorrhea, communism and Lindsay Lohan.

Nickelback is one of the most commercially successful Canadian rock groups, having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, but I`ve yet to meet a single American who is willing to admit he owns a Nickelback album. voted Nickelback as the number one musical turnoff, edging out the likes of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.

Maybe the only way to improve the reputation of Congress, is if they held a "Burn Nickleback CD`s" rally.

Nothing kills a romantic mood more quickly than playing "Afternoon Delight" or any Nickelback song.

As with most despised things, it`s almost impossible to get rid of Congress. Nickleback, cockroaches, and Congress will survive the Zombie Apocalypse.

Imagine if Lindsay Lohan had a love child with John Edwards, the baby would be universally hated and they would have no choice but to name the dammable thing Nickleback.
