    This animatronic Mayor Bloomberg cost the city, at least a billion dollars, but, will save the mayor from millions of jokes.

    Just turn the lens a wee bit to the right to blur my scowl lines when I am talking about the deficit.

    Senator Palpatine uses the dark side of the Force to balance the budget.

    Bloomberg with all his wealth still has to use osmosis to get things moving

    Michael Bloomberg demonstrated his rendition of "Cats" in hopes that he could bring it back to Broadway before the end of his term as Mayor of NYC to line up his next gig. Let's face it, having bags of money is just not as fun as playing a kitty cat on Broadway.

    My hand is naturally formed like this so it made sense for me to pick 'The Big Apple"

    In order to increase the city's revenue and attract more tourists, I've decided to bring a dinosaur to the big apple.

    Mayor Bloomberg to self: "If I could just reach in and pull out the debt we owe China!"

    It's like making a taco after Cinco de Mayo. Grab a little of this and a little of that. Throw it in the tortilla and there you have it. Budget complete-a- mente!

    Mayor Bloomberg demonstrates his use of the "Abra Cadabra" technique in creating the NYC budget.

    As Mayor I have my hand on the lid of the cookie jar. Looks like no more cookies until 2015.

    Mayor Bloomberg is relieved to announce that a pound of flesh from each citizen will not be required to meet the budget after all.

    This is how I put "My hand" in New York city's cookie jar! I usually just grab a handful......
