image for Facebook Coins To Replace Dollar
A New Idea From Ben Bernanke

Washington, DC-- The Federal Reserve is working with Facebook to make some remarkable changes in the US economy. The Federal Reserve plans to replace the dollar with Facebook coins, beginning on January 1. The golden coins will replace the greenback in all economic transactions, and it should save the US economy from any more problems.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke says the new money will be just like the old.

"The coins are created out of thin air, just like the green paper in your wallet. You can pretend you have an imaginary job and play games in Facebook all day and get more coins. Then, you can use the coins to buy food on Farmland. If you still get hungry, just tell yourself it's your imagination!" said the bearded genius.

Since almost everyone is on Facebook, the transition should be easy.

"Everyone is online most of the time anyway, so it just makes sense." said the Fed Chairman. "Everyone can be a Facebook millionaire, if you play the right games. If reality gets in the way, just pretend it's not happening." advised Mr. Bernanke.
