Many People Don't Know $2 Bills Are Real

Saturday, December 17, 2011 - 6:02 AM
Have you tried to pay someone with a $2 bill who didn't know it was real? The $2 bill is so uncommon that there are many people who think it's fake. This Consumerist article reports on the experience of a guy who had his $2 bill rejected by a parking attendant. I remember one article a few months ago in which a store manager actually called the police when a customer used a $2 bill.

The $2 bill is considered unlucky and many people don't want them in their wallets.

Real ugly, too. Check out cross-eyed Jefferson on the back. Who etched that thing?

Many people also believe that rhinoceros horns, green M&M candies, and tiger willies can enhance their capabilities in the boudoir.

Permit me to quote the late Frank Zappa: "This world is just crawling with foolishness."
