To my dear readers,
Both of you. Your loving bastard is ever-vigilant watchman on your behalf. So naturally I feel the urgent need to alert you that on the US Treasury's page, "The United States Mint Hot Items," it says that the President-Elect Barack Obama colorized "commemorative coins" as-seen-on-TV are not, in fact, legal tender.
You can check my math at http://www.usmint.gov/consumer/index.cfm?flash=yes&action=HotItems#obama
No, really! This is not actual money that you can exchange for goods and services!
I wish I'd have known that I was investing heavily in pseudonumismatics.
Hey, I just coined a word! Get it? Because they're coins! And it's a word about coins.
Yeah. Oooooooh lordy, I slay me.
Well anyway, at least I've got some money coming to me from a long-lost relative that recently died in a car-wreck in Nigeria. Without that to fall back on, I'd be screwed.
So it's off to Western Union with me. I hope these coins work in vending machines. I could use a snack.
