If you don't stop them young when they only counterfeit $1 bills they grow up into teenagers who counterfeit $2 bills. It's a cry for help.

you can always tell if a child is counterfeit by the DERPy look in his eyes

He says Mom gave him the dollar... that should be good enough to get her a nice pair bracelets for Mothers Day.

Have to love the way Liberals raise their kids. Counterfeiting is a felony and should be treated as such. The parents should be charged as well. Hopefully justice will be served but I'm sure another Lib judge will be paid off and this Lib felon will remain in society to continue the destruction of America.

Someone called the police over this? How many real dollars is this shiat costing?

(a) fake bill because of the way it was glued together

The real ones always have a better glue job

Seriously. At most (MOST) they should have sent him to the principal to explain why it was so wrong. If I had been the teacher I would have sat him down and had the talk with him myself. The police do NOT need to be involved here.

And of course the comments in the article are "Obama this" "Obungle that"... farking idiots.

The bailout was a Bush plan. It was already initiated when Obama took office.

When Bush took office there was a surplus.

Lack of oversight of funds, including physical cash air-dropped into war zones, was rampant during Bush's command.

And it sounds like this was play-money that the mom made for the kid.

You're right, that was very lazy.

Technically, it is a felony. However, having the little retard explain to his mother than the dollar SHE gave HIM is an obvious fake should be punishment enough.
 
2010-05-13 11:33:02 AM
This is little different to shoplifting and lots of shops will call the police, even if it's low value (on the basis that if kids think a place is lightweight on shoplifting, it quickly stops being trivial and becomes a real problem).

thelordofcheese: And of course the comments in the article are "Obama this" "Obungle that"... farking idiots.

You've just nailed the Naples Daily News' average reader down. For the folks not living here in sunny Southwest Florida, Naples is where Republicans go to retire when they've made enough money by either plundering the public coffers, or exploiting the labor of others. So naturally, there's a large teabagger population.

Cue the "Not sure if serious" pic.

And btw, read the story about the guy who finally got busted for passing off fake $1 bills back around the depression time. He only got caught because of a fire in his apartment:

I just assumed that the kid ran off a xerox and came up with the mom story out of desperation once the squad cars full of officers arrived on the scene. Maybe they tased the confession out of him.

I dunno which is funnier -- the fake $1 dollar bill, or the perfectly legal $2 bill I almost got arrested for spending at a Taco Bell about ten years ago. They called mall security on me, he handcuffed me & called the cops. There were about 30 people standing around, and I was the *only* one who knew the $2 bill was legit -- until the cop showed up.

He was like "WTF?"
They: "This guy just tried to buy food with this..."
Cop: "So?"
They: "It's a TWO DOLLAR bill!"
Cop: "Yeah, I can see that. What's the problem?"
They: "Well, um, it's a TWO DOLLAR bill. There's no such thing as a two dollar bill."
Cop: "What in the hell are you talking about? It's perfectly legal. It's a two dollar bill."
They: "There's no two dollar bill!"
Cop: etc...

I got a free mucho-burger qesos de fundito burrito, and one of the best laughs of my life.

Perhaps, but I still respect someone who will steal over someone who will beg.

At least the kid showed initiative.

Considering the cost of printer ink that fake bill was probably worth at least 1.50.

/I have a few 2 dollar bills, next time I have an afternoon to kill, I'm heading to the mall.

Either you're blatantly copying a funny story and putting yourself in the lead role to add interest, or you have one of the best known stories of the web.

I wonder which is more likely...
 
2010-05-13 12:22:21 PM
This just in: It is now illegal for kids to be kids.

Kids can't play tag.
Kids can't touch kids of the opposite sex.
Kids can't pretend (i.e., pretend to be a cop with a gun).
Kids can't try crazy sh*t because they don't know any better (i.e., make an obviously-fake $1 bill).

That's just a start. I'm sure you Farkers can easily come up with more.

Conservative response:

Kid is Black
Lazy do-noting (obviously on state aid) loser parents are to blame.

Kid is Mexican
I bet the kid is illegal. Damn illegals already get free education so I bet they think they can just print money.

Kid is White
Awww! That's sweet! I hope they realize it was just a childish mistake.
