Taxpayer-Funded "Man Cave" Found At NY Capitol

Officials say that a pair of New York state employees used taxpayer money to creating a "man cave" at the Capitol Building. The pair transformed a maintenance area in a Capitol garage facility into the mother of all break rooms equipped with a TV, board games, DVDs, couches, rolling papers and marijuana scales. The two are suspended without pay and one is charged with marijuana possession and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

Actually, these guys were capitalists. And their abuses clearly indicate that socialism is right, and capitalist supporters are going to hell. We need a revolution. Bullet Box! Bullet Box! Woooo! Call the NRA, I'm going to cum.

One of the two was a supervisor and could not be a union member under US labor law.

With the exception of the marijuana (sorry, just not my thing) I'd be quite happy curling up in a nice dark room with couches, games, and TVs, and no man am I. Are women supposed to be afraid of the dark or something?

Yeah, from the header, I expected to read about some homosexual, male only, sex den. In actuality, it sounds like a good place for stressed out female public workers to relax with or without the men. But, why scales? are they running some sort of business in there?

In many households, the woman has control over the form an function of most of the living space. The man may be given one low-value room to do with as he pleases. This is the etymology of 'man cave'.

That you might enjoy what a typical man does with such a space, just proves you're very cool.
