"Ford chief executive Alan Mulally, you and your folks just lost $15 billion! What are you going to do now?"
"I'm going to Disneyland! No, no, actually, I'm just taking a pay cut."
Mulally's total compensation fell by 37% to $13.57 million in 2008, according to a proxy filing from Ford on Tuesday.
I'm guessing Mulally's stable of pool boys and gardeners might take a hit. We all have to make sacrifices.
In other news, the same people who absolutely deserve those multi-million dollar bonuses for burning their companies to the ground would like you to know that raising the minimum wage would be very, very, very, very bad for the economy.
I'm sorry, was that a cheap shot?
