Not everybody’s signature can be a work of art.
When I scrawl my John Hancock on the back the $90,000 check I take home every other week for blogging for truTV, the horrible looking chicken scratch I produce in no way resembles my name, but then again, I’m not going to be the Treasury Secretary of the United States of America. You see, if you are the Treasury Secretary, your signature gets printed on on every denomination of every dollar bill produced during your term. And Jack Lew, the presumptive nominee to that office, has a signature that looks like this:
I’m not impressed, I’m just reading it out loud.
That’s not a signature, that’s a test to see if your pen has ink.
That’s what you see in the margins of your legal pad after a particularly dull marketing meeting.
That’s a five-year-old drawing a caterpillar.
That’s Charlie Brown’s hairline.
That’s just awful.
On the bright side, current Treasury secretary Tim Geithner has said that when he got the gig, he had to change his illegible signature to”something where people can read (his) name.”
We’ll be on the lookout for that.
