GREENSBURG, Pa. - Charges have been dropped against a woman who paid for
clothes with a fake $200 bill that featured President Bush's picture and
the serial number DUBYA4U2001.
Westmoreland County prosecutors dropped all charges Friday against Deborah
L. Trautwine, 51, after she paid the store in real currency. Trautwine
wasn't aware that the bill wasn't actual legal tender, said her attorney,
Harry Smail Jr.
A clerk at a Fashion Bug clothing store also apparently was fooled by the
funny money. She gave Trautwine $100.58 in change following an August
There is no $200 denomination bill, even without Bush's picture on it. The
back of the phony bill depicted the White House with several signs erected
on the front lawn, including those reading "We Like Broccoli" and "USA
Deserves A Tax Cut."

Oh god, how dumb is that woman who thought she could get away with such an obviously bogus bill eh!?

But more shockingly, how did the store clerk not notice that!?!

Good find, that's hilarious
