Captioning: Help Me Miss Cleo!

Tim Geithner calls the Pyschic Friends hotline during a break at the jobs summit. He is seen below mouthing the words "how many jobs will that create?"

Or "How many jobs could my unpaid back taxes create?"

He’s on the phone to the Boiler Room Elves. They have compromising photos of Little Timmy Geitner, and are demanding a stimulus payment? The cruise was a diversion, for the latest BRE sting, and quite elaborate, getting that staged photo with the Travel Gnome, wow. Who is the master mind?

Stan, Geithner kind of looks like an elf -- the Keebler Elf. I could totally see what you're saying!


Lawhawk, Come on now, you know that taxes are for little people.

I am seriously glad for the translation. He somehow looked to me like somebody who just found a strange hair stuck to his facial soap.

I'm betting we find out that Tiger Woods is somehow on the other end of that cell phone.

"Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now?" [sorry I couldn't stop myself]

Or maybe he's calling his lawyer - This is a new bill that was introduced this week in the House -

H.R.4172
Title: To provide the same penalty rate for taxpayers who voluntarily disclose unreported income from offshore accounts as was afforded Timothy Geithner with respect to his failure to pay self-employment taxes with respect to his compensation from the International Monetary Fund.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, You're an evil woman. LOL! Nice bill, we someone should introduce it!

AndrewPrice said...

CrispyRice, I can't image what Tiger Woods would need from Tim Geithner. . . except maybe a divorce tax break.

BevfromNYC said...

Andrew - Just in case you thought it was a joke - that is a real bill that was introduced yesterday by Rep. John Carter (TX-31) and as of today was referred to Ways and Means for review.
It must be a Texas thang...

AndrewPrice said...

Awesome Bev!! Thanks.

I saw that yesterday, Tom Coburn introduced a three word amendment to the health care bill to strip out Mary Landrieu’s bribe. Ha!

Stan, we think you're getting too smart for your own good. Perhaps you ought to think over your next move wisely. You have seen this, haven't you?!!

StanH said...

BRE: That’s perfect! You guys get around. LOL!

BevfromNYC said...

Man, they are tough in Georgia. You can't even dress up like an elf and strap a fake bomb on anymore. What's the world coming to?

AndrewPrice said...

I know, there go my Christmas plans! :-(

"What do you mean I can't short the US Dollar?"

AndrewPrice said...

JB1000, That may be the most accurate assessment of what is going on! Scary. . . actually, infuriating!
