Yanks Gittin’ the Coloured Moolah

From the age of 18-22, I suffered aged Americans who, when paying for goods or services that I was offering (as a waiter or tourist information agent), couldn’t help but comment on the “Monopoly money” us Canadians use. Well, you know what, you old coots? Your nation’s finally buckled! At long last, the Americans have actually come to recognize that coloured money might actually be a good idea. Now, if only they’d buy into the metric system.

I should add that the Euro comes in different sizes, which is a real bonus for the visually impaired. The $5 bill is actually quite small, while the $50 is pretty honkin’, but it’s a great idea.
