BREAKING: Fed to Bail Moon Out After It Craters Tomorrow...Obama Determines: "Moon Too Big To Fail".
Edited on Thu Oct-08-09 07:16 PM by ddeclue
WASHINGTON D.C. 6:54PM 10/7/2009 - There had been subtle warning signs of late of the impending danger as the moon began waning to earthbound viewers around the world but until just a day or so ago only a few Federal researchers with NASA's LCROSS project were actually aware that the Moon was going to crater spectacularly tomorrow.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke in coordination with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geightner is now working feverishly late into the night to bail the Moon out as soon as possible after it craters tomorrow afternoon after receiving a late night phone call from President Barack Obama.

President Obama became deeply concerned after receiving reports from NASA researchers that the moon was going to crater and yesterday evening actually set up multiple telescopes on the White House lawn and brought in numerous student observers from his daughters' school to help them study the impending event in greater detail at first hand.

The President is quoted as saying in a late night phone call after the event on the White House lawn that "The Moon is simply too big to fail. I don't want to be in the business of orbital mechanics but we simply can't allow the Moon to falter like this- too many Americans depend upon it, in fact too many around the world depend upon the Moon for their livelihood."

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs when asked in this morning's press gaggle what the proposed bailout would cost said "the Administration is considering multiple options for the bailout but we do not have details at this time."

Federal Reserve Bernanke when pressed for comment is quoted as saying "I'm sorry but I cannot discuss which lunar craters will specifically be bailed out or how much will be going to each crater. If we were to discuss these details it could well undermine confidence in these lunar craters amongst the lunar observing public and discourage individual craters from seeking the Fed's help".

10. In a related story... "Boenner denounces moon rescue, calls tidal forces 'socialistic' "
New York - Staff at the Weekly Standard cheered as today as the moon slowly spun out of earth's orbit...

15. Kudos then - very well-played....
Edited on Thu Oct-08-09 07:05 PM by BlooInBloo
As for the unrecs, there could be a lot of reasons. One benign reason, for example, could be that some are simply sick of hearing about the moon.

As usual, don't mind the temporary transient rec-state. Insofar as it matters at all (it doesn't much), it's the long term steady state that is "important".

17. It's excellently done. "Unrec" is Mods' gift to the sourpusses of DU.
I rec it highly. You can safely ignore the people who go through life not getting sarcasm.

18. Sorry, no. You misunderstood.
The moon rocket is about looking for some water, not "some daughter".
