Mr. Burns explains the fiscal cliff: Give the rich money or we’ll kill the economy

At the Springfield Republican Party HQ, which now acknowledges that “rape is bad,” Mr. Burns of The Simpsons unveiled his new post-election plans on Tuesday.

After being informed that despite Karl Rove’s claims, Republican candidate Mitt Romney had lost the presidential election, the Machiavellian billionaire admitted it was time to explain the looming “fiscal cliff” to America.

“Think of the economy of a car, and a rich man as the driver,” Mr. Burns explained. “If you don’t give the driver all the money, he’ll drive you over the cliff. It is just common sense.”

“Furthermore, rich people feel things more deeply than the common man,” he added, showing a clip of depressed and suicidal billionaires following Romney’s defeat.

Mr. Burns also announced his new “progressive” immigration plan, which consisted of allowing 200 Irishmen in the country per year and speaking in broken Spanish.
