Skit Contest at EPJ

All Posts No Comments

Over at EPJ, Wenzel had one of his better moments of inspiration and noted that the names (Mr. Liesman, Mr. Bull, and Mr. Dollar) of three people related to Fed/Treasury intrigue recently, would lend itself to a great Abbott & Costello spoof. I got the ball rolling in the comments:

Geithner: I leaked the story to Liesman.

Bernanke: Wait a second, what did you just say?

Geithner: Liesman.

Bernanke: I know you told him lies, of course we agreed to tell bull.

Geithner: No, we gave Bull all the lies about China.

Bernanke: Huh? I thought that’s what Dollar was for!

I suggested that Wenzel offer $$ for the best skit, since it could garner him some hits if it really were funny. Thus Wenzel announced:

Anyone interested in submitting a skit based on the [humorous three names mentioned in the blog post], please forward it to me at my email address, rw@economicpolicyjournal.com. I will post the winner of the skit (Determined by me.) and split 50/50 all advertising revenue that comes to that post.

Wenzel keeps his cards close to the vest, but I think if the winner wrote a really hilarious piece, it would probably pull in a surprising amount of ad revenue.
