image for Parabolic Microphone Reveals Paulson Bailout Plan
Paulson: "I get to ride on it first."

During testimony to the Senate Banking Committee regarding the 800 Bn USD bailout package, a covertly placed parabolic microphone and recorder have finally been accessed.

The shocking transcript of the recording, although somewhat damaged by the excess amount of hot air in the room at the time, revealed a telling fragment.

This is the transcript of a whispered exchange between the US Treasury Secretary and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve:

Chairman: Hank, what are you going to do with all that money if you get it?

Secretary: I'm buying Disney World!

Chairman: Good idea. We can invite the Chinese and the Russians. I'm sure once they spend a few weeks there, they will be willing to swap it for what we owe...if we throw in Alaska too; but let's keep Palin. Hey, I bet she would love Disney World.. I'm sure she has never been there.

Secretary: Will you shut up!? I just want it for me and my friends!

Chairman: You must be on aspartame! If the press got wind of this ...

[18 minute silent portion of tape]

Secretary: OK, but I get to ride on it first.

[end of tape]

More recently, the pair have been spotted wearing plastic Mickey Mouse ears and whistling the tune to "When you wish upon a star."
