It was an honest mistake. After all, white guys all look alike and smell like milk.

Wednesday in Attleboro District Court to charges of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.

Is that when you tell people you have counterfeit money?

No, that's going to be the followup article: person who made crap counterfeit bills pays fine with counterfeit bills.

Heard it called here first.

And the article will be posted with the Ironic tag, and there will be a whole thread with comments like "No, what would be ironic is if he paid the fine in cash and they gave him counterfeit bills as change."

The headline would have been perfect if he left off "Yeah, I said Lincoln". You don't need to repeat the punchline.

It would still work great over the border on Canadians taking them at parity. Most Canadians don't even know the names of the PMs on our Canuck bucks, let alone American currency.

Hey, Hamilton shot Aaron Burr right in the sphincter to earn the right to be on the $100 bill. DON'T YOU DISRESPECT HIS CONTRIBUTIONS TO HISTORY!

That's why I love my doubloons..arrrrr... I mean loonies and toonies.

There's a satisfaction to jingle the change and to think that you don't have enough money on you for something, only to find that you have over 10 dollars on you after all.

I used to work at Target as a security guard. I was terrible at standing around all day. Anyway, this was a common occurrence at the time. It's hard to get the feel of the paper right, but if you're stacking 20s, most people would just look at the numbers. In that case, they would simply glue on a high quality printing of just the corners to a lower denomination bill.

besides, I actually can't remember what I bought last with actual paper-money.... it's all electronic, paypal and whatnot.

A superb counterfeiting job with just two minor flaws: one, President Lincoln didn't have any facial tattoos, and two, President Lincoln is not on the one-hundred dollar bill.

I'm willing to bet that these were counterfeit $100 bills printed on bleached fives and the watermark image of Lincoln was the giveaway.

Came here to say this.

It's very common for people to bleach $5 bills and reprint them as 20's/50's/100's
