You can't forget the Bill Murray 5 dollar bill.

I smiled until the exit wound on Lincoln's head. Kinda crosses a line I didn't know was there.

WOW! Just a bit of pencil work and we have new $$$. Very creative!

Yeah, I didn't really need the Lincoln imagery either.

I must admit, I did get a good chuckle out of Lincoln the Bounty Hunter.

But the Lincoln Bounty Hunter is fabulous.
I never realized how much better he would have looked with a Van Dyke.

I find them all funny. Then again, I have a twisted sense of humor.

Man, how old are these? I feel like I've been seeing these exact images on the internet for at least a decade, but I guess they haven't shown up in a post here before.

I would kind of love a Washington->Anonymous stamp, so I could convert all of my singles into l33t hax00rs for freedoms.

I, for one, feel bad for anyone whose cultural heritage doesn't include fond memories of being taught how to Spock a five.

Wow, that Anonymous $1 is brilliant.

Yeah the other Lincolns are great.

You don't need a pen to make money interesting. At least, not if you are the two teenage cashiers who I overheard talking about how James Madison of the ten-dollar note is "a hottie."

Spocking the Five. Yeah!

You Canuks are all right, eh?

What is the ninth Washington supposed to be? Just looks like extra shading.

Man, how old are these?

Well, they made an appearance at Reddit recently, so it only makes sense for them to be on Buzzfeed now.

Shepard Fariey style?

Also...are drawn-on bills still considered legal tender?

I recently got this $5 bill as change from the Brooklyn Shake Shack.

I felt the same way until I saw the caption: "BOOTHE! Headshot" and somehow that made it funny again.

My favorite dollar ever had what I can only assume was a Spanish love letter scrawled all across it. I thought of it as my lucky dollar, and I kept it as long as I could, but then there was that awesome Living Colour concert shirt (seriously, it was a great show) and it was $18, and I only had $17 (involving quarters) and my lucky dollar, and, well, I kept that concert shirt longer than I probably would've kept the dollar.

I've always liked stuff like this, but it's just not something people do in Japan all that much, and my Japanese isn't really good enough to write out love letters on 1,000 yen notes.

James Madison is not on any bill or coin. Alexander Hamilton, on the other hand, was probably simultaneously annoyed and somewhat flattered.

koeselitz, you are correct, of course. *sigh*
