Dumbass of the Day

Alice Regina Pike is today’s winner for trying to buy $1675 worth of merchandise at Wal-Mart (Side question: what did she buy, a thousand pairs of panties or something? I didn’t think anything at Wal-Mart was that expensive!) with two gift cards.

The gift cards had a combined value of just over $2.

When that didn’t work, she handed the clerk…are you ready for this?

A one-million-dollar bill.

Trivia buffs out there will remember that the United States has never issued a million-dollar bill. The highest denomination ever issued was the $100,000 bill, series 1933, which featured Woodrow Wilson and was used only for inter-bank gold transactions. It was never released for general circulation. The highest circulation issue was the $10,000 bill, featuring Lincoln’s Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase. All bills over $100 were officially recalled from general circulation in 1969.
