President Obama Goes "Willy Wonka"

Funny story written by Obama's Blackberry

Monday, 27 April 2009

In an effort to spur consumer spending, President Obama has decided to use a gimmick he learned from his favorite childhood movie, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

His idea is to put five "golden dollars" into circulation, each having a picture of Obama in place of George Washington.

The golden dollars are to be sent out at random into circulation. Whoever finds a golden dollar is entitled to a tour of the factory that no one has ever seen inside of before. (In this case, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing) And, as if that were not enough, they get a lifetime supply of money.

Each prizewinner will also be allowed to bring a guest to the factory.

President Obama said; "Now if that doesn't get people out and spending - nothing will!"

Turbo Tim immediately sent a text message to Obama that said; "Two problems Mr. President, our money is green - making it very easy to find the golden dollar, and lots of people have actually seen inside the Bureau of Engraving and Printing."

Obama fired back an angry text saying; "Tell me Timmy boy, which of your bright ideas has worked so far, and for your information, I've never seen where they make money!"

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