The Trillion Dollar Coin Is Super Super Serious!

Probably one of the funniest things about the trillion dollar coin idea — and it’s already about the dumbest political idea anyone has every come up with — is how seriously the advocates are taking it. Like look at this humorless reaction (language warning, of course) to FOX News suggestion that the coin would have to be equal in weight to 89 blue whales.

Really, how dare FOX News make the scheme to use a loophole on a minor law to mint a trillion dollar coin to pay debt seem idiotic. This is smirt people stuff. Very serious.

  1. The trillion dollar coin might be neat because it might have Scrooge McDuck on the front. Either that, or the Monopoly guy. But it would ultimately be our undoing, because The Joker, The Riddler and The Penguin would join forces and steal it.

  2. So, Michael Moore’s decades in the making scheme to become a standard unit of measuring weight is close to fruition. I’m sure the 50 or 60 extra coins minted will be safely stored just in case the one circulated gets lost because it is just crazy talk to suggest Obama might have use for more than one.

  3. In about 20 years we’ll all be spending trillion dollar coins, so they might as well get a jump on it. Might as well have a donkey on one side and Obama on the other. Though no one will be able to figure out which is tails.

  4. All they need to do is have a $1 Trillion Power Ball drawing, tax the poor sap who wins at 99.9%:PROBLEM SOLVED! (that’s still $1 Billion by the way)

    If I can come up with a solution in the time it took me to type this, wtf is wrong with these people?

  5. Currently platinum is selling at $1,629.00 US Dollars per oz. It’s gonna take a pretty good sized coin to have a face value of 1T. On the other hand if our creditors are stupid enough to buy into it, why mint it. However, anyone really think the Chinese are that stupid?
