Please be aware that your phone will be billed five dollars for this call which will be used to pay for all private charter 747 flights to Hawaii once I leave office."
Not funny and off-topic.

There's no need to drag a thread about heroes into the political gutter. There is no truth to your statement and no positive purpose for it.

Judging from all of the LOL reputation replies I received, I would disagree and say my political satire was right on target.

However, it was off-topic since the thread was in "Current Events" and not the politics section.
