Apply for a Federal Bailout!

On this Sunday with all of the economic and political news filling the newspapers, airwaves, and internet, we decided that a moment of comic relief might just give a few moments of smiles and laughter. Below is a piece written by Bruce Feirstein of Vanity Fair that we hope you enjoy.

Apply for a Federal Bailout!

December 1, 2008

If you’re like most of us on this first day of December 2008, you’re probably looking at your bills and your gift lists and the endless list of people you have to tip this month, thinking, Hmmmm, I could use some of that federal bail out money just about now.

But how do you get your hands on some of those billions? How do you apply? How does Hank Paulson decide why Citibank lives and Lehman Brothers dies?

Well, it turns out that V.F. contributing editor Bruce Feirstein has discovered the ├╝ber-top-secret Federal Bailout application—the one-page “EZ-CASH” form that’s been making the rounds at corporate board rooms, weekend ski chalets, and NetJets waiting rooms all across America.

Click on the image to see the form, fill it out, and you too can be rolling in cash again.
