    LEXINGTON — Do you have change for a million-dollar bill?

    Police say a North Carolina man insisted his million-dollar note was real when he was buying $476 worth of items at a Walmart.

    Investigators told the Winston-Salem Journal ( http://bit.ly/u7ZrEN) that 53-year-old Michael Fuller tried to buy a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other items. Store employees called police after his insistence that the bill was legit, and Fuller was arrested.

      Oh wow! How stupid can you get?

      "A warrant says of the fake million-dollar bill: "There is no such thing."

      The largest bill in circulation is a $100 bill. In 1969, federal officials discontinued the use of $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 bills because of lack of public use."

        So...can I still use my $10,000 bills? I have an old stack of them in my top drawer, just gathering dust. lol lol lol

        I've never even seen such a large bill! The largest I've ever seen "in person" were $1,000 bills.

    I've been going to a certain grocery story for over 10 years. Might be fun to print one of those out... If nothing else, I'll get free room and board for awhile. big_smile

    That is ironic that $1M bill got him a free ride!  But either way it just goes to show you some people are more dangerous trying to possess common sense than actually executing it.
