New Bush Coins

From Blip-TV, here is an all-too-credible view of a future where we no longer measure money in dollars but in gallons of oil. Enjoy this apocalyptic vision of one possible future.

That would be a good joke - if it weren't so close to being reality!

What else can one say but "Scheise..." Sigh...

100 gallon coins? With the cars of the future that'll be worth, what, 20 minutes of driving?

Got a kick out of the joke at the end. As for the meat and potatoes message, I'm not sure if I should laugh or run screaming to the ballot box.

Wow! That was hilarious. I'd say scary, too, but if that scenario ever came to pass, I'd ask for a steak and egg breakfast, ablind-fold, a cigarette...oh wait, they don't do that at Guantanamo.

Dubya told the Indians today to go back to starvin'. Seems they're causing our high ethanol prices at the gas station by trying to eat up all the corn. Selfish little bastards.

"FUEL FOR THOUGHT: 'LET THEM EAT ETHANOL,' DUBYA"

I agree with the future was yesterday. It's one of those things that holds too much truth to be as funny as it should be.

Tom Harper said...

Too funny, even if it really is too close to the truth to be funny.

Barbara Bush's ugly mug defacing yet another money denomination? How many does she need? Her face is already on the one-dollar bill.

No specie for oil!

Doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
