George Washington Owes Somebody $300k

Man, considering he's been dead for 211 years I can only imagine how much his bill will rise to when he is forced to pay those ObamaCare costs. But apparently a British paper has found that the nation's first President has racked up a $300,000 tab on two overdue library books. I just hope that they don't dig him up to shake him for it, mafia-style.Just add it on to the national debt!

The former president, who died in December 1799, borrowed two books from what was then the only library in Manhattan – "Law of Nations," a dissertation on international relations, and a volume of debate transcripts from Britain's House of Commons. 

Must have been too busy, you know, making America awesome.

That's funny. Wonder why it took them so long to notice.
