The news has been fun this week, eh? A LAUGH RIOT. My business partner and I put our phones on “Do Not Disturb” today just in case the bank calls to cancel our line of credit.
With the news stories are flying all over the place, I understand the crisis much better now, but I still don’t get how George Bush and most other politicians had the gall to say the economy was just fine, even as recently as just a few months ago. I guess by then the money had been sucked out of the system and they were playing Monopoly anyway, so why not make try to make nice nice while they huddle over at Park Place?
Speaking of Monopoly money, one of the crazier ideas I have heard bandied about is the thought of just making more of it. Literally. Just printing more money. Talk about the stupidest thing ever. Talk about a great way to make our money worth even less. Print up a bunch of sheets of paper that mean nothing and dump them into the economy.
OH RIGHT! That’s what they did in the first place.
But here’s the thing. If they do print more money, can we redesign it in the process? Because whoever gave the goahead to put Helvetica on the dollar bill ought to be shot. (That’s Arial to you PC folks). And this time? How about picking someone who understands color theory and won’t put opposite colors like red and green together? Heck, I will even volunteer my services for FREE.
Seeing as they will be worth about nothing soon.
