Great moments in money laundering

This is why we don't get nice things, here in Hyde Park:A few details warrant further examination here, hopefully in Tuesday's Maroon. First, how can you doctor a $5 bill to make it look like a $100? And wouldn't a $1 bill have been easier? At the very least it would have saved these gentlemen four dollars. Second, after seeing a $5 bill with, presumably, the "5" crossed out and "100 dollirz" written in its place, why would the first instinct be to grab a counterfeiting pen? Third, and most importantly....the Secret Service? Really?Anyways, be on the lookout for someone in a blue jacket and someone in a blue jacket with white stripes! The scoundrels!
