This is funny

Over at Free Republic:

A cafeteria worker thought it was odd that a fourth-grader would pay for his lunch with a $20 bill.

The cashier at Marquette Elementary School was right. The cashier, who also noticed that the texture of the paper wasn't right, alerted the school's police officer, Patrolman Greg Tatum, who asked the 10-year-old about the money.

"He reached into his front pocket and pulled out more," Tatum said.

The discovery Tuesday led to the arrest of three fourth-graders at the Gary school, where police and school officials confiscated $179 in counterfeit money.

...

Police arrested two 10-year-old boys and a 12-year-old girl. In all, police identified seven fake 20s, three 10s, one five and four ones, Otano said.

Yep, they were also counterfeiting ones.

Which is further evidence for my theory that children are fucking stupid.

Of course they are. So were you at one time.

Guess they are going to learn pretty quick how unfunny things can get when you start playing in federal crimes.

They shouldn't have used that lined notebook paper.

When was the last time you checked a $1 bill to see if it was counterfeit?
They were just trying to slip under the radar.

Reminds me of that Beavis & Butthead episode where they photocopied nickels and cut them out with scissors.
