The US Treasury is having trouble printing the monumental sums of money needed to stimulate the economy. "The defective bills - which could number into the tens of millions, potentially representing billions of dollars in face value - will have to be burned, they say.

How can you tell if your bills are fake?

1. There's a nose above the pyramid, instead of an eye.

2. Instead of "This note is legal tender", the fake bills read "This note is Love Me Tender" & there's a picture of Graceland on the back.

Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me, What a long, strange trip it's been.

Liberace is not wearing an eye patch on the three dollar bill.

At one time we were all old enough to know, yet still young enough not to know any better. Thank God (or, whoever is screening his/her calls these days) some of us can somehow pretend that to be, more or less, still the case.

Any odd denomination, other than a one or a five dollar bill, is definitely a fake!

The bald eagle has been replaced by a bald beagle.

All the denominations of bills are different colours - just like the Mickey Mouse Canadian Bills.

Incidentally - one of the Canadian coins has as picture on it of the Queen with a bare behind. 'Tis true as I live and breath.

Where it says "The Federal reserve promise to pay the bearer the sum of" it now says "The Federal reserve promise to laugh at you if you want to see the gold this note represents."

Above the "Great Seal of the United States of America" is the picture of a great big seal.

In the lower left corner of the front, you can make out "Monopoly copyright of Parker Bros."

What? No, those are real. You must not have heard of the new Series 2012.

In the bottom left margin it's printed, "Printed in P.R.C.". But that could be a genuine bill, no?
