(Iowa City Press-Citizen)   In the not too distant future, continued miniaturization and flexible circuits may lead to the creation of $20 bills that also work as cellphones. Right now, though, you'd have to be pretty drunk to confuse the two   ( divider line

I got this $20 bill that keeps ringing. Some a-hole is looking for Elaine. I tell him "there's no Elaine here, buddy" but he doesn't get the hint. I tried using the bill but the lady at the gas station says "That's an Elaine Twenty. I can spot them a mile away. I got three of them in my drawer and they don't stop ringing. Banks won't touch 'em."

Going to be interesting when I pay for the lapdance with a ringing bill. Video chat, anyone?

"Hold on, I gotta take this call..." "How's it going Mr. Jackson?"

Strangely enough, this immediately came to mind.

Now THAT'S one Maxwell Smart never thought of.

Sadly, that $20 bill will now cost $80

Damnit, scientists. If I'm drunk enough to use a $20 as a phone, I don't want it to work.

Just another typical early Sunday morning on the Iowa City Ped Mall after all the bars close.  This guy is lucky the cops had a sense of humor and a lot of patience!  He's even luckier that he didn't get rolled by one of the homeless people who have taken up residence down there.  You just never know what you are going to run into downtown Iowa City in the wee hours of the morning.

First thing I thought of too.

Typically I think public intoxication arrests are a joke, but it sounds like they gave this guy plenty of chances and he was just so stupidly drunk they had little choice but to arrest him.

If you set it to vibrate, the strippers will love you for slipping it into their g-strings.....

As someone that has attempted to use a $5 bill as a phone, I am getting a kick out of this...

It's sort of happened to me. CSB time: Met this hot woman from London who was in the States for a year on assignment. We had drinks, I showed her around town, we ended up at an underground club on S&M night (she was thrilled), and we had a great time. It was late and she had to go home, and at the time I had a Motorola Razr which has difficult to enter data into while drunk. So she wrote her contact details on a twenty. About a minute later she asked if I could get her a bottle of water. I went to the bar and promptly bought two bottles of water, paying with the $20 she wrote her info on. Hope she didn't get too many weird calls from that one!

/Yeah, yeah, we should have hooked up that night but we were both pretty drunk by then so not the best idea

Indeed.  Was going to say 'Next Sunday, A.D.', but that works.
