Everybody knows Al Gore invented the Internets, but did you know a Broward County Commission is a world-renowned inventor as well? On Sunday morning, Chip LaMarca (R-Really?) took to Facebook to reveal his latest gift to humanity. Chip reposted a LivingSocial deal for a USB Wall Outlet. For just $19, you can plug your smartphone or tablet directly into your wall outlet. Not a bad little invention, right?
As part of his Facebook post, Chip added, “I had this idea for an invention a couple of years ago. It’s a great idea and use of space.” You said it, Chipster. Thank goodness your genius and hard work will benefit all of humanity. Thank goodness you got that patent! Now you’ll be able to buy lots of expensive wine!
Oh wait, nevermind. Just like Gore, LaMarca is another politician taking credit for someone else’s hard work.
Not sure which is worse: claiming you invented something you did not or reposting “deals” from LivingSocial.
Wonder if LivingSocial has deals on protective gear? Quick, someone ask Christopher Warnig!
