Now that Alexander Hamilton is being booted from the front of the $10 bill, the competition is heating up among leading female candidates to replace him.
The finalists have been announced by the Treasury Department, and voting by U.S. citizens has begun. Below is a listing of the candidates, along with a quote from a supporter of each:
-- Miss Chiquita of Chiquita Banana fame. "What personality and voice. I could listen to her singing The Chiquita Banana Song all day."
-- Snow White. "She loves the little folks, that's why I love HER."
-- Aunt Jemima. "No one can make pancakes like she can."
-- Cinderella. "She got her shoe back AND she got her man."
-- Butterfly McQueen. "She became my instant hero when, as Prissy in GONE WITH THE WIND, she said, 'I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies.'"
The U.S. Government has urged all constituents to follow the example of Chicago voting: Vote early and often!
