Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status. The quote then had to be seconded by someone (it almost always was), and then it would be written down to be forever immortalized on the Quote Board.

This is the modern day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.


Justin: “Man, you can’t let go of Daredevil.”

Minus all the senseless death,


…about a month ago, and I asked her to bring me back some foreign currency because I usually dig the art on the bills.

She brought me back this:

2,000 Vietnamese dongs

Here in America, we have dollars. In Vietnam, they have dongs. One U.S. dollar is worth approximately 17,000 Vietnamese dongs, so this 2,000 dong mark is worth only about eleven cents.

That last paragraph was the best thing I’ve ever written.

But the best part is what’s printed on the bill. If you look closely, it says “HAI NGHIN DONG.”

Heh. Hahaha! AWESOME!

Thanks, Lille!

If anyone out there wants to send me foreign currency (low denominations, obviously) I’d consider it an honor to make fun of your money here on “The Blarg.”

Send money to:

8635 Cashio Street, #10
Los Angeles, CA

Just me and my Vietnamese hanging dong,


Old Poop!
