News, but not the serious kind
Indiana Obama and the Bail-Out of Gold!
Mr. Spielberg, I know we didn’t plan to make any more Indiana Jones movies, but this opportunity is just too good to pass up.
Forget about Harrison Ford. We’re recasting the part with – are you ready? – President Barack Obama!
We’ve already done some screen tests, and he looks PERFECT in the hat! And as you’ll see, he was BORN to say the classic Indy line, “I don’t know, I’m making this up as I go”
But here’s the neatest part, Mr. Spielberg, Obama has actually submitted his own script!
It’s not bad. It has Nazis and Commies and aliens, and then in the big climax he gets them all into a room and calls for “new beginning.”
Just picture it, Mr. Spielberg, he cracks his whip and says, “This cycle of suspicion and discord must end.” And then the credits roll…
Oh. Well, okay, I guess he wouldn’t mind if we reworked it just a bit, Mr. Spielberg.
