Obama Appears on Food Network to Cook His Special "Federal Accounting Book" Recipe

Washington, D.C.--President Obama appeared on the Food Network yesterday to cook his "special recipe" consisting of budget tables, federal budget books, and "loads of cash," all flame-sauteed over a giant burner.

"We read about the President's health care bill, and his fondness for cooking the books," said a Food Network spokesperson. "We figured he'd be a perfect addition to our lineup."

Obama, whose health care plan became famous for its double-counting the same federal dollars toward reducing the deficit and paying for benefits, was thrilled by the invitation.

"My recipe builds on one used by notorious Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff," said Obama. "But mine has a lot more kick to it."
