WASHINGTON, D.C. — After managing to make $200 Billion disappear in a single year, tech entrepreneur Elon Musk was made an honorary member of Congress by unanimous vote.
Lawmakers had reportedly peed themselves with excitement, imagining what Musk could do with an omnibus spending bill.
"Making him an honorary Congressman was a no-brainer," said Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders while staring in awe at Elon Musk's financial losses and drooling a little bit. "He makes us all look like amateurs; we had to team up and work together just to make $2 Trillion disappear."
"It is with much chagrin and distress that I vote to make Musk an honorary Congressman," said Rep. Kevin McCarthy, "I have standards. I would have been more comfortable with a conservative loss of $198 billion."
It was reported that other conservative members of Congress were equally upset about bringing Musk into their fold because of reckless spending, but voted him in anyway because Pelosi told them to.
At publishing time, Elon Musk's net worth mysteriously shot upward after being voted in, as had happened to all other members of Congress.
Here is a comprehensive list of the only instances it is acceptable for men to shed a tear.
