Default The 26 weirdest government stories of 2018

Did you hear about the cybersecurity minister who has never touched a computer? What about the statehouse that erected a shrine to Satan? Or the government website that will teach you how to roll a joint?

At Apolitical, we aim to highlight the good work government does — but we also like to find the humour in public service.

Here, we’ve compiled the most outlandish public service stories we read over the last year, broken down by region.
