    I feel like a moron. I missed the scans of the bill. :mad:
    If you look at more than the number in the corner then it is obviously a fake. The serial # and the we like broccili sign in the yard are teh funnay. :D

    That sounds like a made up story. No one would be that stupid. It's just a bunch of Democrats playing a joke on the cops and the media.

    I once tried to pass a $1,000,000 bill with the statue of liberty on it as a joke at the local supermarket. It said not legal tender on it and there was an 800 number printed on it to order more. They caught it. :eek:

    You realize of course that that is a federal offense and can get the secret service knocking on your door, also that they are the oldest and least humorous law enforcement agency in the country.

    But remember the woman who tried to do that at a Wal-Mart store and wanted change....:D

    Pretty stupid in both cases, but someone actually went to a lot of work to make one of these up. I wonder how many more are out there...

    I think it might be a toss-up between the Secret Service and the IRS. Not a lot of humor there, either.
    Gee, maybe the governement just sucks the joy of life right out of a person. Clearly, they need more Macs.

    And if the CIA used a computer, we wouldn't know what it was. But they don't strike me as power mac guys, perhaps a 12in alum though...
    The FBI seems like a more Mac friendly agency. I'm sure if Mulder from the X-Files had a choice, he'd have a Mac ;)

    Funny..

    I have spent time in PA, more than I would have liked. From what I've seen it doesn't suprise me at all. There must be something in PA water. Seriously I'm not joking!! :D

    Not a chance. The IRS takes care of taxes and such, while the Secret Service handles ALL counterfeit money stuff. Now if you gave them that as payment on any taxes you owe... ;)

    That amount should certainly cause a second look. The clue should have been a picture of our current president. It certainly doesn't make sense to go to all that work for an obvious fake.

    Oh you are so on their hit list now...

    On topic: That is so funny. Who would do that? I mean how do you explain that to anyone? How in the world to you try to justify accepting a $200 bill?

    Undoubtedly both the woman passing the bill as well as the clerk must be Fox News watchers. I find if anyone believes in that right wing propaganda machine, they'll believe just about anything!

    "Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he's in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this." --Lt Gen William Boykin, speaking of G. W. Bush, New York Times, 17 October 2003

    "God gave the savior to the German people. We have faith, deep and unshakeable faith, that he was sent to us by God to save Germany." --Hermann Goering, speaking of Hitler

    "A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side." Aristotle

    I Don't know about you guys in America, but here in Oz, we use plastic notes, similar to your new $20? The beauty about plastic money is the way that makes it hard to counterfeit, and thus making the amount of counterfeiting money rings here less. I believe the prevention to be better than the cure on this issue! Go plastic money!
