Joey Caramba found two bags containing over $4 million in his trash can.

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - An unemployed banana picker named Joey Caramba has just become the luckiest man in Central America.

Caramba was at his home putting some trash in his garbage can. As he took off the trash can lid he noticed two blue bags were sitting on top of several trash bags.

Joey took the two blue bags out and when he opened them he was shocked to see that they both contained lots and lots of money.

He quickly put the lid back on and ran inside to show his wife Susie.

Joey and Susie counted the money and when they were finished they had counted out a little over $4 million.

At first Susie told her husband that they should turn it into the San Jose Police Department.

But when Joey assured her that they would only end up keeping it she suggested that they keep it and hide it underneath their bed.

Joey and Susie figured that the money belonged to some drug dealers and they would just keep it hidden underneath their bed until someone came forward to claim it.

Joey and Susie Caramba agreed that if no one claims the $4 million within 48 hours they will leave San Jose, Costa Rica, change their names, and buy a luxurious home in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

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