Wallet Check

You know, I was just going through my wallet, and I realized that I have three ten dollar bills that are all entirely different. There's a ten with the small face of Hamilton, there's a ten with the large face of Hamilton, and there's a ten with the new color-coded large face version of Hamilton.

All of which got me to thinking. . .

If there was ever a time that was ideal to be a counterfeiter, this is it. I mean, cashiers nationwide have been inundated with so many different versions of U.S. currency over the past several years, you could probably pass them Monopoly money and they'd think it was just the latest iteration of the government's attempt to stamp out counterfeiting.

I find it all deliciously ironic.

And how do you know that any of yours are real? Hmm? Spend them, quick!

Reminds me of the joke about the counterfeiters who accidentally made a batch of 18-dollar bills.

They decided to try and pass them off in some backwoods, out-of-the-way country stores.

At the first store, they asked the clerk if he had change for an 18-dollar bill and the clerk replied, "sure! What would you like - 3 sixes or 2 nines?"
