Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

In the news today there was an interesting story. A man from Augusta, Georgia attempted to open a bank account with a counterfeit $1,000,000 bill in the small South Carolina town of Clearwater. He was charged with disorderly conduct and two counts of forgery.

When the astute bank employee refused to open the account the man started to curse at bank workers. Consequently he received the disorderly conduct charge. The first count of forgery is for the $1,000,000 bill. The second forgery charge came after investigators learned he bought several cartons of cigarettes from a nearby grocery store with a stolen check.

How can the first charge of forgery possibly stick? Everyone in the banking industry should know that there is no such thing as a Million Dollar Bill. I have several $1,000,000 bills which were given to me as gag gifts. They are available on the internet and in novelty stores. Since no such denomination of United States currency exist these cannot be forgeries. As for the second charge of forgery, unless the clerk at the grocery store actually saw him sign the check and is willing to testify to that fact, the best that they can get him on is petty theft.

I have a friend that collects paper currency. There is probably a fancy name for these collectors, but I’m not going to bother looking it up on Gooooogle. The pride of his collection is a US $500 bill. He told me that this bill has been out of circulation since the early 1970’s. He also has a lot of foreign currency. It’s a nice collection but I rather have the cash instead.

By the way if anyone has any interest in any of my $1,000,000 bills, let me know. I’m willing to let them go for $20 US. No forgeries please.

Always the humorist! That's a good thing. If we can't laugh at ourselves we can't laugh at life. Being able to laugh at life keeps us young and sane.
Blessings my friend,
