Congress: I think we can make that happen for you. I'd really like to see you walk away with this $34 billion! In fact, I think we can do this today, but I'm going to have to go talk to my manager.
Congress: (sliding a piece of paper across the desk to The Big 3) Well, my manager wasn't quite comfortable with $34 billion, but I think this will still make you very happy. Whaddaya think?
The Big 3: (crying) This is just a Polaroid of someone's middle finger!
Congress: I think it's a pretty fair offer, but if you want I can go back and try to talk to my manager again.
Congress: Okay, I really fought for you guys, but this is the best I can do. My manager says you can have twelve dollars and fifty cents, and you have to buy the rust-proof coating for all of your jets. Oh, and I'm going to need that picture back. Well, fellas, whaddaya think?
It might not solve anything, but it'd be fun to watch!
**Updated 5:53PM-I just saw this article about Polaroid. I think The Big 3 should take the picture and be happy. It will be worth a lot of money someday.
