image for AIG Seen Leaving Supermarket with "Pockets Stuffed with Licorice"

President Bush was reportedly furious at investment giant AIG when he got a report that it was seen leaving a local supermarket with a pocket full of candy and a brand new video game.

"We don't provide bailout money for companies to waste it. This money should be used for business purposes only, not for fun and games" Bush was quoted as saying at a recent press conference. He continued that other companies that received bailout money in the past "Wouldn't even consider spending it foolishly. I know that when Chrysler got bailed out in 1979 they completely skipped the big Halloween dance because of the door charge to get in. I guess huge corporations had more respect then."

Bush said that AIG might be grounded and not allowed to visit "various business conferences or the mall anytime soon. They have been running up big bills texting each other too." he said. Bush threatened to take away the cell phones. "We'll see how they like that."

A spokesman for AIG said the situation wasn't really the way it looked and that the candy and video game was purchased "with some lunch money they saved up."
