Today, the head of General Motors, Barack Obama, announced an exciting new vehicle that will be offered soon. He expects millions of Americans to buy it.
Q: Mr. Obama, what type of vehicle is this? Is it a car?
A: We’re not sure yet. We are pretty sure that it won’t be a car. If you have a car today, you will not need this vehicle. We do not want to compete with automakers.
Q: Will it use gasoline?
A: No. It will be a clean vehicle.
Q: Will it be solar powered?
A: Maybe. Whether we use solar power, gasoline, or any other means of propulsion is still to be decided.
Q: I thought you said it won’t use gasoline?
A: Look, gasoline has served us well in the past and you can get it just about anywhere. You can’t really have a car without gasoline.
Q: Have you done any market research to see if people are interested in this vehicle?
A: We expect to sell 45 million of these vehicles. Because we are going to sell large numbers of vehicles, it seems pointless to do any market research. We will spend several months, if necessary, coming up with the design of this vehicle and then produce millions of them. There is no reason to try out different versions of the vehicle in different markets to see if any improvements can be made to it.
Alan Mullaley, the CEO of Ford Motors had this to say about GM’s new vehicle: “Clearly this is a dangerous vehicle for both its driver and anyone close to it. The government wants to take away everyone’s cars and force them to use these government cars which, as I understand it, will fueled by the blood of retired people. Although I have no information about this car, I am telling you now that it will destroy America.”
