Earlier today the Federal Reserve unveiled a solid gold statue of former Congressman Ron Paul. The statue, made out of solid 24K gold, was created at the behest of current Chair of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen, who thanked Dr. Paul for his efforts to, "put the Fed on the map."
"Without Ron Paul, most Americans would not even know what the Federal Reserve is or what it does, let alone who I am," said Janet Yellen. "He even forces me to do regular press conferences, which helps get my name out there as the savior of the economy."
When asked why the statue was made out of solid gold, Yellen responded that she wanted the statue made out of a material that would hold its value and stand the test of time.
"Gold was clearly the only option. It was the only thing we could come up with that would hold it's value over the next one hundred years. In fact, it is the material I use for all my personal statues."
Congressman Paul was not available for comment as of press time.
