image for Obama Calls New Budget "Bobby"
Not the president's pet! A budget can be cantankerous at times and difficult to feed.

Delighted at the prospect of getting a new pet, young president Obama had already chosen a name for his soon to be pet bird. He was more than a little annoyed when he found out he was getting a new budget and not a pet budgie as he had originally expected.

Still he wanted to make the best of a bad situation so when it was time to introduce the budget to congress he quickly dubbed it "Bobby".

"Hopefully Bobby the budget will be around for a long time." Master Obama was quoted as saying. "I look forward to many happy hours playing with, and watching my pet budget, and I hope you'll enjoy him as much as I do."

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