DETROIT (CBS Detroit) The city’s bankruptcy filing has put Detroit in the crosshairs of every comedian from Chicago to Chattanooga.

And now Taiwan is laughing.

A company called NMA Animation, a Taiwanese animation company that pokes fun at the news of the day in satiric fashion, posted a pointed You Tube video mocking Detroit and its financial troubles.

At one point, an M&M gets shot and it takes police an hour to show up; in another scene, the RenCen swirls into a toilet. President Barack Obama takes the city’s request for a bailout, rolls it into a joint and smokes it.

What do you think? Perhaps the best takeaway is to not take it personally. The same animators posted take-downs of the new royal baby, the steroid scandal in Major League Baseball, and protests in Egypt.

This group also famously produced a video “recreating” the time Elin Nordegren did/did not attack a philandering Tiger Woods with his own golf club.

Looks like it was Detroit’s turn.
