Monopoly Money

via Nile Gardner, this is what some wacky designers want our money to look like:

Of course, Barry would replace Washington on the single! Notice the fine outline of the ObamaLogo? Notice also the ObamaBlue color. Other note designs include an indian teepee ($5), the bill of rights ($10), and the hero of the left, FDR, on the C-note. The designer says the vertical format reflects the way we handle our money - our current horizontal design is seen sideways when one takes a fiat note out of one's wallet. With the new design, we can see Dear Leader's shining countenance in its proper orientation. Another ingenious feature of the new design is the size of each denomination. While the short side is the same as our present fiat money, each denomination has a different length. Like the old Disney World A-B-C-D-E tickets, the one is shortest, and the $100 the longest.

This design looks easy enough for anyone with a high quality color printer to counterfeit. Why should the Federal Reserve have all the fun?
