If I want to travel to a foreign country, I'll visit the World Showcase at Disney World! There's no Paris like an American Paris.

I ran into a scam when I was visiting Canada. I went to a shop just over the border, and I got some snacks, and the cashier said it would be about 6 dollars. So I gave her a 20. She hands me back this monopoly money with some dumb biatch's picture on it.

I ask her what the fark that was, and she tries to convince me that those *were* dollars she gave me. I threw the bills in her face (along with some chuck e cheese tokens with moose and beavers on them) and told her she better give me some real money.

Also don't give any money to monkeys wearing human doll masks. Even if they are playing a guitar.
