Signing off on a constitutional crisis - "Just Kidding"
Signing off on a constitutional crisis
Barb Guy

After an especially eye-popping bill at the store, I hit upon an idea. While signing my name on the credit card receipt, I added a little statement: Signatory cancels the above debt; will not pay.

Then I did the same at the gas station. Later, when signing a contract for a freelance job, I put this: Signatory will not do the work detailed above but payment is due immediately.

Then, drunk with my newfound power, I flew to Italy and bought a lovely seaside place on Capri. I studied enough Italian on the plane so I could write non che gonna pay you per questi house. Can you believe they went for it?

Just kidding. Only a deceitful person or an idiot would try such underhanded stuff, right? Well let me tell you where I got the idea: our president. When signing a bill into law, President Bush often writes in, "Just kidding."
