Woman Arrested for Counterfeiting Blames

A woman was arrested for counterfeiting in Tennessee after she tried passing off a fake five dollar bill at a market.  The clerk called police, who arrested her after discovering she was trying to make a purchase with a counterfeit bill, both sides of which appeared to have been printed with a home printer and then pasted together.   She was also in possession of a fake hundred-dollar bill in her purse that had been glued together with one side upside down.  Authorities subsequently found in her home a printer, reams of printer paper and thousands of dollars in fake bills that wouldn’t even be believable as monopoly money.

Her defense was that President Obama had passed a law making it okay to print your own money.  According to CBS Washington, she told police, “I don’t give a ****, all these other b****** get to print money, so I can too!” She was apparently referring to an article I wrote for in 2009 titled “Obama Wants Citizens to Print Their Own Money.”

It’s sometimes nice to see how far a reach my influence has.

Visit My Namesake City

Come visit the beautiful town of Braddon, Australia.  As much fun as it is to tell people this place was named after yours truly, according to Wikipedia, Braddon was name after an Australian legislator named Sir Edward Braddon.  Sir Edward participated in the writing of the Australian Constitution and was the Premier of Tasmania from 1894-1899. Tasmania also has its own area called Braddon.

Apparently, Braddon is also a very hip place to eat.
