AIG – Keeping it Surreal

So in a fun little twist, AIG, after recieving its fourth bailout and posting a record loss quarter (and by a factor of about TEN) has decided to sue the US Government for having to pay taxes.

No, seriously.

Now, what makes this truly priceless is the comment section at Ace about this. Because without the humor provided by my fellow AoS Morons, I’d feel like reason:

I’d type something snarky and sarcastic, but right now I can’t see too well, on account of the BLOOD SHOOTING OUT OF MY EYES.

or Dang:

I can understand this. Every time my mother (83 years old) gives me a birthday present, I beat the s–t out of her. You know, to keep her in line. She keeps giving me presents. That’s where the whole “making sense” thing breaks down for me.

and then of course DrewM brings the absurdity to a whole new level:

AIG is suing us!

Technically, it’s suing itself. The US government owns and 80% or so stake in that money pit.

What a f–king world.

They’re coming to take me away, ha-ha, ho-ho, he-he, to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time…
