No matter what your political affiliation, just about everybody can agree that the government shutdown is a huge bummer.
No picture better captures that sad trombone feeling than this shot, recently posted to Reddit and shared on Twitter by Time magazine's Alex Fitzpatrick.
But wait -- we're not through making you cry. Gizmodo recently posted a video of a 5-year-old weeping his eyes out because NASA's website had been shut down (the video was later removed).
And the hits keep on coming. Here's a photo posted to Twitter earlier this week by photographer Matt Dunn. One helpless shrug is worth a thousand words.
Another picture, this time of security gesturing for people to get away from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington.
Finally, here's a photo of a man, later identified as Chris Cox, working on beautifying the lawn around the Lincoln Memorial on his own time and with his own mower.
