Please Join D.C. In Welcoming Its New Doughnut Overlord

All hail, most powerful Dome-nut.

Posted on May 1, 2014, at 3:18 p.m. ET

The Capitol is a place all D.C. residents hold sacred and the dome inside the Capital is a special point of pride.

And a sizable portion of D.C. has given their out-of-town friends tours of the dome.

"Yea, I work here." *brushes shoulder off*

But horrified D.C. residents arrived Thursday to find their beloved dome covered by THIS.

Apparently this abomination is for some "renovation."

And people are furious. Especially since it will be there for 18 months.

Sauron?

That terrifying Giant Squid eye.

But Rep. Kevin Brady knows the real truth:

Clearly, it looks like a flying saucer @bennyjohnson
