Is this what it takes to convince me not to hold my bridge toll in my mouth while i roll down the window? i mean, i guess we all know that money is dirty, but i used to enjoy my blissful ignorance.

HA! That 1st link is from the online version of The Beaver County Times.

It took me a couple seconds to figure out why the word "BEAVER" was written in all caps directly above the article. I thought it might have been a naughty subhead or a caption, but it was the dateline. Heh.

That lends new meaning to "Where's George".

In times gone by, bank tellers would wear gloves to prevent from contracting all sorts of nasty diseases, including leprosy.

Reminds me of a punchline to a decades-old Playboy Party Joke:

"Too bad we didn't have Maggie Thatcher along. We could have saved the Rolls, too."

Haha nice one.

Never any reason why you'd wanna put money in your mouth though. But.. you get far more contamination from other things anyway. Shook hands with someone recently? They probably masturbated with that hand earlier.

When you leave a public restroom, do you touch the taps? Do you touch the door handle? (I try not to whenever possible) If you do, that's contamination again.

Thankfully our immune systems are getting used to it ;-)

"Shook hands with someone recently? They probably masturbated with that hand earlier."

A friend of mine would like to point out that when you masturbate, you're touching the cleanest part of your body.

I'm just going to stay quiet on this one, personally.

CrayDrygu: are you sure? If it's the cleanest part of your body, then why do dogs always sniff there? Hmm? There should be no smell coming from the cleanest part of the body.

“Shook hands with someone recently? They probably masturbated with that hand earlier.”

You get off on stuff like that, don’t you? :P

“There should be no smell coming from the cleanest part of the body.”

How do you figure? Clean things don’t have an odor? I don’t buy it! You and your bad logic. Um. :P

If I understand correctly she was effectively fined over 1,000 dollars for storing money in her vagina ("Reed also ordered that half of the cash be forfeited").

Why?!

Because state law clearly explicates that all spare money be kept in one's rectum. Hey, the law is the law.
