SOOOO many possibilities! I like the trollface one. Maybe Trollface Obama instead, though.

Second choice: Biden. He's just that awesome. Maybe Biden in a Trans-AM.

It's not the same. This has a followup tag, the other one had an amusing tag.

People keep talking about this trillion dollar coin like it's actually going to happen. Thankfully, it seems like they're also making fun of the idea.

It's like watching a monkey in a behavioral experiment. He's holding the long stick and looking up at the banana, but he's just not quite putting it together...

When I see blogs and the news repeatedly talking about something, it sure seems like they're floating some sort of trial balloon. So multiple people keep on talking about this retarded platinum coin thing as if someone out there wants this idea in people's heads, wants them to keep talking about it, wants them to get used to the idea. Thankfully, though, most of the talk seems to be ridicule. Well, some columnists are taking it seriously and talking seriously about it while stroking their goatees, and telling their serious readers what kind of serious things they should know about it.

Scale it up 100x (to account for inflation since the 1980s) and we're all set.

Well, the fiscal cliff is a manufactured phony "crisis", so why shouldn't the solution be a manufactured phony coin?

I don't think so. This is one of a very short list of legal avenues the Executive can take in response to a prolonged Congressional failure to raise the debt ceiling. If it comes to pass that measures this drastic are necessary, I'd rather the solution have been widely known, studied, and debated publicly rather than cobbled together at the last minute like TARP.
