    Default The Reagan Forty Dollar Bill - it's about time

    The U.S. Treasury announced today that they have begun printing the new forty dollar bill with Ronald Reagan on the front.
    story here: www.treas.gov/topics/currency/Reagan40.html

    I'm so happy to hear this! I've thought they should do this for years now. It's perfect. You can't buy anything for less than $40 anymore anyway. It's also good for morale. saying "I just spent $200 filling up my SUV" is just too negative. It sounds better to say "I just filled up my SUV, and it only cost 5 Reagans!" The treasury elaborated by saying that it would issue the bills directly to domestic petroleum giants, since they already have most of our money anyway and the 'trickle down' effect should get the money back to U.S. citizens quickly enough. This is the best thing the Bush Administration has done since...since... This is the best thing the Bush Administration has ever done!

    If it wasn't April 1st and I was queen of the world -- or really just the US Treasury -- I'd give everyone what they really want: a $25 bill. Why the hell do we have 25 cent pieces, but 20 dollar bills?* Base 100 monetary system, people! I've spaced out and accidentally tried to underpay things so many times, counting out four $20s and thinking I'm giving the person $100.

    Or maybe instead of a $25 bill, I just need to be less retarded.

    That will cost you two Reagans.... does not seem to roll off the tongue all that easily.

    "It's all about the Reagans".

    Are you implying that you regularly say the phrase "That'll cost you four Jacksons?" ...Or "eight Hamiltons?" Or "sixteen Lincolns?" Or "eighty Washingtons?"



    Or "two Jacksons, three Hamiltons, a Lincoln, and five Washingtons?"

    How about "one and three-fifths Grants?" "Four-fifths of a Franklin?"
