To Whom It May Concern:
It has come to our attention that your President made the following statement when referring to a group of banker CEOs:
“I didn’t run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat Wall Street bankers.”
Frankly, we in the Fat Cat Community are outraged at the President’s callous remark and we are offended at being associated with bankers or Wall Street CEOs in any way, shape or form.
In contradistinction between the zaftig feline kind and the objects of the President’s ire, most cats (including fat ones) are patriotic, pragmatic, cunning and blessed with an inherent instinct for survival.
The only similarities between cats and the TARP recipient banks are the fact that we all possess several lives and survive falls that we should not have been able to.
In conclusion, we would like to remind the President that batting around balls of yarn did not put the country into $12 trillion dollars in debt…easy money and securitized lending did.
We can look past being called fat but the banker association is, frankly, unmeowable.
We await your apology…under the neighbor’s car.
