image for Bloomberg has $5.5 billion; offers to fund Jersey budget for 5 years

NEW YORK - Forbes magazine recently identified New York City mayor and potential 2008 independent US presidential candidate, Michael 'Daddy Warbucks' Bloomberg, as having a net worth of 5.5 billion dollars.

After meeting with spin doctors to decide the best response to the disclosure of his finances, Mayor Bloomberg immediately promised to cover the operating expenses of Jersey for the next five years as an "act of charity".

Residents of the Bailiwick of Jersey, an island in the English Channel and a British crown dependency, immediately rejoiced.

Meanwhile, resident New Jersey Mafia boss Tony Soprano suggested that he is considering using the tiny island as a tax haven indefinitely.
