Congress got you down? Drunk dial your congressman, says website

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Perhaps you're a bit frustrated with Congress right now considering what's going on with the government shutdown and the threat of a default on our nation's debt. 

But a new website promises to let you vent your frustrations with Congress in a unique way.

You'll just have to pull out that bottle of whiskey you've been saving for a special occasion.

Presenting DrunkDialCongress.org, a mobile website that allows you to dial the office of a random member of Congress.

"Whether you're a furloughed worker, being forced to work for free, or just fed up with Capitol Hill, call and yell at a random member of Congress," says the website.

While the website, which claims to have been "built responsibly", doesn't actually encourage you to call your elected officials while you're drunk, they cite reports of congressmen being drunk in the days and hours before the shutdown began as their reasoning for the website's creation.

The site also highlights several recipes for cocktails you might enjoy while staying on hold with congressional staffers. 

For you classy folks out there, you might want to take a look at the "Southern Congressman" if you like your mixed drink with a little bite.
