What a moron. Everybody knows you have to spend at least $500,000 before they'll break a one million dollar bill.

He must of thought that Walmart or the clerks were really stupid.

cindy, you'll note that this time it was in Your Carolina.

The plan won't work often.
But it only has to work once.

If the story goes viral, and he still has the 1,000,000 bill, he might get a substantial bid for it on ebay. Now THATS a plan ! HAPPY NEW YEAR !

I actually have one of those. It has the Statue of Liberty on it, just like the back of the President dollars. Which, in turn, look like Chuck E. Cheese tokens.

He's putting his time in stir to good use, creating the $17,500 bill for his bond.

In his defense he was 53, his eyesight was going, and his "broker" gave it to him when he cashed out his stocks. Oh, the broker? An associate of Bernie Madoff's.

Which brings me to my next point:
Reading the comments under the story, I think we can safely conclude the Fed wants to be the only "criminals" printing money, even fiat money...

Just saying...

Why didn't they mention that he runs the Federal Reserve?
