PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA - Flush with cash, the technology giant has been looking around for places to park its enormous amount of money. Last week Google (Inc.) purchased the app-Whatsupp for an estimated 17 billion dollars. This week evidently the whole country was on the auction block and was picked up for a paltry 5.5 billion.
In a YouTube statement, Sergei Brin, one of the founders of the company noted, "We figured that the whole shebang was worth about 30-40 billion when you figure in the colossal debt we'll have to deal with on the nation's books. But when Congress made us take Detroit as part of the deal that really knocked off a lot of cabbage."
Google says that as of Sunday when the deal clears escrow, the entire population will effectively be employees and will only be asked to tap a few lines on their home computers keyboards or perhaps visit a website or two and they will be eligible for enrollment in the "new Social Security II" plan. Phase two is set to begin in 2065.
Brin noted that the "old Social Security" plan is hereby cancelled. Along with all flights out of the country.
