WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama has contacted President Nacho Winslow of Mexico and reminded him about a loan that the United States made to Mexico in 2002.
President Obama was referring to a $13.7 million loan that was given to Mexico to help them develop that country's very first recyclable piñata factory.
The Mexican president responded to President Obama's request by stating that his country is unable to repay the loan or even make a partial payment on the loan.
When asked why he replied that due to his country's bad economic state there is just barely $8,000 in Mexico's national treasury.
President Winslow went on to explain that part of the problem is due to the horrendous drought that has engulfed Mexico.
He explained that the demonic drought has strongly affected the jalapeño production, as well as the tequila production and the tortilla industry.
He also pointed out that another problem is the fact that the exporting of maracas, serapes, and toro piggy banks has fallen off by 60 percent.
SIDENOTE: President Obama is not at all pleased by the economic situation in Mexico and he has stated that if Mexico does not at least pay the U.S. $15,000 by February 14, he will consider placing an embargo on Mexican jumping beans, hot sauce, and huaraches sandals).
