Republicans plan to spend Wednesday railing against Congress' latest spending bill, and their main line of attack looks like it's going to be earmarks.

Plan to watch? For a more hilarious viewing experience, keep these fun facts in mind:

* Earmarks make up just $3.8 billion of the bill's $410 billion.

* 40% of the bill's 9,000 earmarks were inserted by House Republicans.

* Republicans make up 40.9% of the current House.

* It's a spending bill, and "earmark" basically translates to "specific item of spending."
