The brother of the Sultan of Brunei
Set out to see how much a guy could buy,
And fifteen billion’s what he finally spent
Before the sultan voiced some discontent.
The guilt of many shoppers was assuaged.
The most committed shopaholic gauged,
“I’d really have to spend a lot more dough
To be a spendthrift like the sultan’s bro.”
Finally, President Bush is “deeply worried” about the economy. Yep, in remarks last week, he even went so far as to observe that “the recovery is very slow in coming.”
