    Hilarious? I think not…illegal, yes! I guess I just have a greater respect for our dollar than you do.

    Banks should kick them back to the defacer as worthless…let them pay for their fun. Charge them 5.00 to deface Lincoln, now that would be hilarious!

    From the U.S. Treasury:

    “..Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined not more than $100 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

    Defacement of currency in such a way that it is made unfit for circulation comes under the jurisdiction of the United States Secret Service….”

    see in the uk defacing notes or coins is totaly legal in fact i could set fire to the union flag with a ten pound note and would only be down ten pounds and be flagless

    of interest is the phrase “with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued”

    I doubt Joseph intends this to render the item unfit to be reissued… and this would obviously be disproven if he attempted to use the bills for their face value. (i.e. melting coins would fall under that provision, but not likely minor defacement that did not obscure their face value and identity if the bill).

    Good job Joe D!!

    You people are nuts!

    Even defaced, these bills can all be reissued because you can tell that they are all authentic dollar bills.

    To render a bill or coin unfit to be reissued you would have to bleach out all the ink or completely destroy it so that there would be no evidence as to what the original value was. The purpose of this is because the Treasury controls how much of each denomination is in circulation and if someone is destroying coins or bills then it makes it impossible to determine how much is in circulation and it is impossible to re-issue.

    These bills can all be reissued AND Joe D had no intent to render it unfit for reissue. Joe D wins!!

I don’t know how I ever worked without hilarious and funny things in our life, Life would be so much easier especially when there’s a jokes here and there. Being funny is nice because a lot of serious people are lacking with this kind of behavior that is why they are much look older. I would like to thank you for your outstanding blog post. Keep it up! Awesome!

    I got into an argument with my manager about defacing dollar bills when I admitted to him that I sometimes add goofy quotes to George Washington’s mouth…he made it into a huge fucking deal and said that I was disrespectful and such. I find it ridiculous that people can get so offended by such a harmless act. Is a piece of paper/cloth really that important to you? Some people are so brainwashed by the government that it makes me wonder if they do in fact have brains.
