image for NASA Demands A $13 Billion Bailout
$273.4 million down the damn drain

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida - The Assistant Director of NASA, Bradford Ian Friendfield, has written a letter to President Barack Obama demanding that the United States government provide the NASA space program with $13 billion.

Friendfield said that banks, auto companies, mortgage companies, and even Starbucks have all been given billions of dollars in bailout money.

He added that the recent space probe malfunction where the Orbiting Carbon Observatory Spacecraft exploded shortly after liftoff will set NASA back about $273.4 million.

Friendfield said that NASA can try and recoup some of the loss by cutting back on overtime, weekly company picnics, corporate trips to Europe, and the annual buying of 10,000 Girl Scout cookie boxes.

An aide for the president said that when he read Mr. Friendfield's letter, "Brobama" (Brother Obama) uttered some of the strongest, most vulgar curse words known to man.

Even one of his secret service agents reportedly covered up his ears. It was not a pretty sight.

The aide did indicate that basically what the president had conveyed to him to convey to Friendfield was to take a number. And the aide stated that the number was 1,737...and we are presently serving number 8.

In a totally unrelated story. Lindsay Lohan supposedly wants to prove her true love for her fiancee Samantha Ronson by getting the letters "SR" tattooed on her golden donut.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
