To Beethoven's 5th: "Chump-chump-chump-CHUMMMPS!"

Although she looks a little more like Bottom than Puck, I can't help but think Pelosi is chuckling, "Lord, what fools these mortals be."

"Irrational Exuberance"

Rational Jenn said...

Oooh, I like Michael's suggestion!

Also, this picture reminds me of The Hudsucker Proxy. You know, for kids!

Very nice! I like Michael's as well. I still have something more sinister in mind... they just look like aliens pulling one over on an unsuspecting public, just waiting until their plans unfold and they can feast on our brains.

I'm reminded of Kang and Kodos from The Simpsons, when they took over the bodies of Clinton and Dole:

"My fellow Americans. As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball, but tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward,
and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom."

Rational Jenn said...

Ah....I think I get it now. Something more Soylent Green, perhaps? A "Sauron has just issued a press release stating his intention to give Rings of Power to Congress" kind of thing?

Hmmmmm......I'll think on it some more.

PS: This picture is really nauseating.

This is the way the world ends...

...not with a bang, but a snigger.

You think we actually READ it?

"Voldemort's plan for the protection of Muggles has finally been enacted. We're saved!"

Kelly said...

*sung to the old Wizard of Oz tune*
"If we only had some brains!"

PS: Diana, that's fabulous.

Proof that some Toys"R"Us kids really don't grow up!

Great suggestions, all.

In fact, everyone did such a great job that we all win!

But I've decided to change the rules of the game, and instead of the winners receiving $787,000,000,000, we all have to pay it. It's the patriotic thing to do.

"We would like to thank the banking community for relinquishing their assets voluntarily."

C. August said...

Ah Phoroneus, that is a great one! In fact, it's so good that I'm going to change the rules again and institute a progressive prize system. As a star performer, you get more of the prize of paying the $787,000,000,000. Congrats!
