We all like to buy something fancy every once in a while to show that we’re actually doing well in life. A pair of boots made entirely out of real dollar bills is one way to do it, but you might need more than just a couple of singles to make boots that are made for your feet.
Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to fit a couple of fingers in there. This takes some real talent and skill – if you asked us the best way to twist a bill in a pair of fancy shoes, we wouldn’t have the slightest clue where to start. They tipped the toes, for goodness’s sake. And look at the flaps that are at the top of the opening. This is true skill.
Exquisite Under-the-Sea Service
When the service at a restaurant is really good, you want to leave something special. This family had such a good time at the restaurant that not only did the server get a real twenty-dollar tip (approximately twenty-two percent, so a great tip), but we’re told that the son of the family wanted to leave something special, too.
The gift was a thousand big ones, as long as big ones means fake money from “Spongebob Squarepants.” Unfortunately, this isn’t actually worth anything, but it does certainly draw the eye. You might get lucky and find a collector who wants to take this kind of “cash” off your hands, but otherwise it’s not really worth anything. It’s a fun story to tell the other servers, at least. That’s worth a little something.
But I Wasn’t Saying Anything!
There are a couple of restaurants out there that let you draw on the table clothes, but they go out of their way to encourage it. This keeps kids (and antsy adults) occupied until it’s time to eat, and allows the people who work there to see some fun drawings on occasion. This time, the diners left a tip of a hard-to-discern amount that is held by everyone’s favorite buffoon, Philip J. Fry.
If you’re wondering how they got the thumb to go over the money, they probably just cut out a little flap and used it to keep the money in place. They could have also drawn directly on the money, but that’s a little bit of a no-no. The way the money is folded looks like it’s being held down by something.
Just Like How Abe Used to Look
If you work at a restaurant or as a part of the service industry, you’ve probably gotten a million different tips – that makes it special when a customer takes the time to make their cash look a little different. All it takes is a couple of folds and bends to make a five-dollar bill look a lot better. Add some...we think those are little bits of straw wrapping paper or something like that...and you have a person.
For most simple meals a five-dollar tip isn’t bad, and taking the time to make it look a little special might not up the amount any, but it’s liable to put a smile on a server’s face, and that just might make it a little more special. Look, they even got the head to be the same shape as the hair.
You Only Need Ninety-Nine More
We don’t know how much this waiter or waitress actually received as a tip, since the bills are all piled on top of each other, but that’s not the important part of this picture. Maybe you can figure out why we wanted to include this one. While it is illegal to draw on money (with a punishment of up to a hundred dollars PER BILL), we hope that the powers that be will let this one slide.
It’s the kind of bill that you might want to just use inside a machine, though who knows if a machine will even be able to read this one. We wonder who is in charge of the money in the Mushroom Kingdom. Wario, maybe? We bet he’d like the job, but he probably wouldn’t do very well.
