Well DUH! Calendar  
Government by the Idiots

In 1977, the Smithsonian Institution bankrolled development of a dictionary of Tzotzil, a language spoken by only 120,000 poor farmers in southern Mexico, nearly none of whom could read or write--and, therefore, didn't have much use for a dictionary. If the government had simply given the farmers the $89,000 it spent on the dictionary they didn't need, they wouldn't have been so poor.

NOTE: This rings a bell from last year's calendar, but I could be mistaken.
