Chrysler Corp Chairman Tom LaSorda announced today that he sees light at the end of the tunnel for the beleaguered automaker and foresees Chrysler emerging from bankruptcy and making a small profit no later than the fall of 2077.
"There are many children currently living who will live to see that day", an exuberant LaSorda told the news media. "We have not turned the corner but now we know there is a corner to turn!"
US President Barack Obama welcomed the first good news from any of the Big Three Automakers by declaring "America has shown her true strength and will emerge victorious!"
Newly installed General Motors interim chairman Kent Kresa expressed skepticism over LaSorda's remarkable claim. "We don't foresee GM emerging from bankruptcy before 2109", Kresa stated. "And we're in better shape than Chrysler. Only a few very young babies will see us make a profit".
Honda Motor Company chairman Yoshihide Munekuni, claimed he was not afraid of the possible turnaround in fortune from the Big Three. "Soon they will all die and we will become King!" Munekuni declared.
