You must be joking

Today a FedEx driver dropped off some packages at our building. He asked if we were Federal employees and, upon learning that we were, asked us about a new quarter he had received as change recently. It was like one of the newly designed state quarters, only this one was for Puerto Rico. Do these guys pay taxes? Are they a state? Now before we get too crazy on our nation's new political leadership, it takes a bit of time to get a coin into production, and I imagine it was under "W"s watch that this was approved. I can't wait for the U.S. Virgin Islands quarter, that'll be a real hoot. Strange times indeed.

Well, considering China is about 10 years from owning our asses, it won't be long til they're printing Mongolian quarters. And no, PRans don't pay taxes, but they do provide some fine Latinas. Far more useful than tax dollars these days. Although I'm pretty sure CEO's get their share of Latin hotness too.
