All about the Benjamins

I’m pretty sure that the new $100 bills will produce some kind of wingnut freakout.

The most obvious angle is “they look like European money!”, but we may also see some chatter about jack-booted Federal thugs coming to take back all the old hundreds.

Also too, it’s a lot tougher to counterfeit a chicken than to counterfeit a piece of paper.

    Well, yeah, this new C-note should raise alarm bells. Just watch the video in the link showing the new bill’s supposed security features.

    The security watermark portrait doesn’t look like Franklin at all. It’s Jack Benny, known liberal and early media race-mixer integrationist who started corrupting our youth over 50 years ago. Benny also did not age a year after he turned 39 and died (supposedly) under mysterious circumstances.

    Jack Benny, Joe Biden, Barack O’Bama. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

    Glenn Beck will be talking about this soon, and be sure to watch my commercials for my Benny New World Order replicant detector, which will come in handy for the coming New World Order Bennycopalypse. You will need to identify the replicant Benny zombies coming to take your stuff and give it to Rochester replicants, who will then oppress you.

    The Benny watermark portrain is an obvious signal for the New Order thugs to Prepare. You should be prepared too.

    On a slightly related note, I am the proud owner of a huge, gorgeous oil painting of an ocean sailing ship – four masts, I think – that was painted for my grandfather, who was a urologist in Chicago during the Depression as payment for care rendered.

    Comrade Mary says:

    Lance thinks hard about chickens.

    Has she thought about what would happen if people did start paying doctors in kind? In them olden days—Landon’s obviously studied at the Sarah Palin School of Eloqution—one or two chickens a week helped the doctor and his family eat. But doctors saw a lot fewer patients back then. Now some see twenty-five a day. That’s a lot of chickens. If we brought back the olden days it would turn doctors into poultry farmers and they would have to cut back on their doctoring to spend time taking their chickens to market, presumably in those flatbed trucks with beds stacked high with rickety cages that always get run off the road by the main characters’ speeding car in screwball comedies. All those sorrowful looking drivers standing by the wreckage of their trucks watching the feathers waft down around them were doctors, I guess. …
    __
    Lowden “remembers” the olden days because her grandparents remembered what their grandparents had told them about what their grandparents had told them.
    __
    Memory is partial. It gets colored by regret and nostalgia. It’s often not even made of memories. It’s assembled out of images and incidents we’ve been told about or that we read about or saw in movies and on TV or conjured up out of dreams. And it’s useful. It lends itself to convenient re-editing.
    __
    What Lowden is failing to remember about the olden days is that in the olden days when some doctors were forced by their patients’ poverty to accept payment in kind is that the doctors didn’t feel comfortable pressing for anything more because they were often being paid for letting someone die.

    Like my grandma used to say, read the whole thing.

    Oh, my FSM – I hadn’t thought of this before. It used to be that the height of conspicuous consumption was lighting a stogie with a C-note (which Obama is making less attractive, what with the plastic strip in the new C-note). But now we’re going to go back to the good old days (the 16th century, back before (most of) the Reformation, naturally) when Rabelais said that the most luxurious way of wiping one’s ass was to use the neck of a live goose:

    Afterwards I wiped my tail with a hen, with a cock, with a pullet, with a calf’s skin, with a hare, with a pigeon, with a cormorant, with an attorney’s bag, with a montero, with a coif, with a falconer’s lure. But, to conclude, I say and maintain, that of all torcheculs, arsewisps, bumfodders, tail-napkins, bunghole cleansers, and wipe-breeches, there is none in the world comparable to the neck of a goose, that is well downed, if you hold her head betwixt your legs. And believe me therein upon mine honour, for you will thereby feel in your nockhole a most wonderful pleasure, both in regard of the softness of the said down and of the temporate heat of the goose, which is easily communicated to the bum-gut and the rest the inwards, in so far as to come even to the regions of the heart and brains.” (from Gargantua, 1534)

    I’m not sure how the banksters will do it in public, but obviously I’d hardly put it past them.

    I thought you would carry your chickens on your belt, beside the onions.

    I’ll bet a chicken that some wingnut compares the new $100 bill to Kenyan currency before Friday.

    I expect Cavuto to trumpet the bartering economy as The Next Big Thing.

    Or, in Cavutospeak —
    “Barter: the best economic system ever????”

    Sitting in my Doctors office in Las Vegas waiting to see my doc for a annual checkup. I have 14 chickens with me, 9 for the doc, 3 for the blood test lab fees and two for my urinalysis. The lady next to me is being treated for “female problems” as she puts it. She 23 chickens with her. The older gentleman across the room with high blood pressure has only 3 chickens with him. All told there are 11 patients waiting and 104 chickens, not to mention the guy with the steer in the hallway. BTW I just got my new F 250 pickup last week, I traded in my old Explorer and 11,391 chickens for it, I think I got the deal of a lifetime and it pulls my chicken trailer with ease!

    @jp2:
    Indeed, my understanding is that Greece’s woes come not from lacking control of a currency poorly suited to their economic state but instead from the European flamboyance and colorfulness of the notes they use.
