Funny Money

September 14th, 2003

Apparently, some people will fall for anything. Two years ago, a clerk at a Diary Queen drive-through in Danville, Kentucky, was presented with a $200 bill bearing George W. Bush’s portrait on the front. She gave the payer $197.88 in change. Funny enough… but it’s not an isolated case. Just a week ago, a man in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina used the exact same gag bill to pay for $50 in groceries, and was given $150 in change.

A closer image of the $200 bill can be found here. It claims to be a “Moral Reserve Note,” and on the back, shows a White House with signs in the lawn saying, “We like Broccoli,” “No more scandals,” and “USA deserves a tax cut.” The bill is also adorned with an oil well, an NRA slogan, and the statement that “this note is moral legal tender to preserve the U.S. constitution.” Apparently the counterfeiter was a Republican….

On the other hand, some people won’t accept real money because they think it’s fake. This is a rather amusing recounting of an incident at a Taco Bell where the manager refused to believe that there was such a thing as a $2 bill. I don’t know if it is a true story or not, but it is fun to read nonetheless.
