I just saw this commercial on Comedy Central for some silver $20 bill that costs $20 and one side of it looks like a $20 bill and says something about "remembering the $20" and then the other side is ALSO a $20 bill but instead of having 20's in the corners it has 9's and 11's because 9 plus 11 equals 20 and there's a picture of the TWIN TOWERS and some WE WILL NEVER FORGET THING! I feel like I'm hallucinating. I DON'T UNDERSTAND!

I feel like I'm hallucinating. I DON'T UNDERSTAND! I saw that also. They advertised the original price to be like $39.95, but by immediately calling the number on your screen, you too could pay face value...$20.00! For one second I thought it would be a cool commemorative in honor of 9/11. But like, who will ever forget that day? And...Who's gettin' the $20 for each one sold? Just another way for some dimwit to profit off of loss? Show me one of those with Osama Bin Ladin's mug on it and I'll guarantee you'll be one rich motherfucker! Hell, for that matter, show me a real bill that We can spend with his face on it and watch our economy take a turn for the better!

Now, that might be funny. It all depends on positioning.

dude, I remember when those first surfaced when I was like... sixteen? maybe even longer ago?
anyways, the band I was in at the time handed a bunch out at a show by means of throwing them around on stage. heh some really drunk guy thought they were real and picked a fight or two by scrambling around trying to snap them all up.

I saw the commercial over the weekend at my parents house. I had asked myself 'who would really buy that?'

did he think it was like an ace, 1 or 11, except a 9 or 11 bucks?

I saw this commercial last night as well ... pretty effed up.

Did I hear it correctly, wasn't this done through the Liberian mint? Thus, the issuing of this was not done with the U.S. mint / U.S. government ...

also, they stated 2x that it was "99/99% silver leaf" ... which, I think, means it's coated in silver ... but, the majority of it is probably some cheap ass material.

and, it's limited to 5 per household ... ha ... creating false scarcity will get people to jump all over it.

What a joke.
