On Thursday in Washington, a subcommittee of the United States House of Representatives conducted hearings on the swine flu.

Friday, a subcommittee tackled the Bowl Championship Series.

Insert your own joke.

Let's pray Congress knows more about pigs than pigskin, though, because its latest query into the controversial BCS system was predictably scary and comical.
