The president signed an executive order today stating that: "The entire structure of the White House, including floors, walls, and ceilings, shall be 100% covered in a 1' thick coating of pure 24 carat gold.
Furthermore all chairs, tables, furniture of all kinds, and pictures, statues, and/or artworks shall also be electroplated with a brilliant shining veneer of 100% gold to a depth of no less than 1 inch."
The president then shrugged his shoulders.
"On second thought, let's just encase the whole damn thing in a solid brick of gold, and be done with it."
His aides were quick to point out that this would make doing business in the oval office difficult."
At which point the Commander-in-Chief replies. "Then we shall make another oval office. This one will be made of pure gold from the start. No plastic. No wood. Nothing. Just 100% gold. Shining, brilliant gold."
The leader of the former free world then laughed his ass off.
