Goldman In Talks To Acquire US Treasury

Here's a rather amusing spoof that recently appeared in The Borowitz Report.

'In what some on Wall Street are calling the biggest blockbuster deal in the history of the financial sector, Goldman Sachs confirmed today that it was in talks to acquire the U.S. Department of the Treasury. According to a Goldman spokesperson, the merger between Goldman and the Treasury Department is 'a good fit', because 'they're in the business of printing money and so are we'.

The spokesman said that the merger would create efficiencies for both entities: 'We already have so many employees and so much money flowing back and forth, this would just streamline things'.

The only challenge facing Goldman in completing the merger 'is trying to figure out which parts of the Treasury Dept. we don't already own'.

Goldman recently celebrated record earnings by roasting a suckling pig over a bonfire of hundred-dollar bills'.
