    The Correlation Between Britney Spears' "Work Bitch" And The U.S. Unemployment Rate Is As Clear As It Is Shocking

    I'm not kidding.

    The year was 2013. The month was September. The U.S. economy was basically trash.

    Miley was playing with a stick. Katy was losing the support of gays. Rihanna hadn't released "Anti" yet. It was all quite sad.

    Then, on September 15, 2013, that all changed when Britney Spears released inspirational labor anthem, "Work Bitch."

    A revolution began.

    They got to work, bitch.

    And while all of this is fun and games, there is a true honest to Godney correllation between the economy and the release of "Work Bitch." Ever since "Work Bitch" has been released unemployment numbers in the U.S. have steadily been on the decrease. Seriously.

    This is a chart of the unemployment rate in the United States since "Work Bitch" was released. As pointed out by Twitter user gloryoso, the numbers don't lie.

    The red arrows say it all. Since the release of "Work Bitch," people go to work, bitch.

    Britney Spears did that.

    So, in these trying times, what can we deduce from this economical data?

    I think it's safe to say the U.S. has gone to shit.


    We need someone who is a climate change warrior.

    We need someone who knows how to fight, like the military.

    We need someone who can shoot a lazer out of her vagina.
