US Patent Office Surprisingly Primitive

The glorious US Patent Office, arbiter of all things innovative, apparently grinds to a halt when page is faxed to them upside down. Yes, you read that correctly. Faxed. Upside down.

Here's the message one potential patent candidate got after submitting his paperwork:

The faxed submission was received upside down. We are unable to continue processing these images.

There is so much wrong with that statement I won't even start, except to say I can't believe the future of American technological innovation relies on these clowns, and I can't believe my tax dollars are supporting them.

I want my money back.
