Funny money

As part of the fight against money laundering and organized crime, the $1,000 denomination was withdrawn by the Bank of Canada for circulation in 2000.

It is however being reintroduced in 2008 under the stewardship of Bank of Canada Governor elect Mark Carney.

The new $1000 note will commemorate Canada’s 18th Prime Minister, The "Right Honorable" Brian Mulroney. An important feature of the new Brian Bucks is that it will carry all the normal security features, with the exception of those pesky serial numbers. This should facilitate its widespread use.

The new bill is best used in a brown paper bag.

I am going to cash in my income trusts & convert my DOLLARS into Mulroooooney bucks--put it all into a suitcase , albeit a very small one , & head to the states to do a little shopping.

If I don`t tell anyone , maybe I won`t pay any tax either--I hear Brian says this is the way to go.

He also has a few boxes of spare airplane parts labeled "Airbus" , in case anyone is interested.

Maybe Stockwell Day can test tasers out on Jimmy "I know nothing about finance"
