How Princess Chunk epitomizes the state of a nation

A cat nicknamed Princess Chunk (actually a male, initially mistaken to be female) was taken in by a shelter in New Jersey after being abandoned by the owner. The cat immediately made news because of its extraordinary weight (44 lbs or 20 kgs) but it got more interesting when it turned out that he had been abandoned because his owner had lost her house to a bank for not repaying her loan.

The cat is now a media darling, but few seem to see the irony in the situation. In physical characteristics and in circumstance, Princess Chunk is so much like his human compatriots it is not funny.
