Yesssss. William you have outdone yourself. Your finest work yet. ZH lets get some T-shirts going and trademark this. A few thousand people walking around with one of these will spur some google searches. 

Also William can you post the Weekend at Bennies photoshop you made?

About 4 $100 FRN's can be printed per standard paper size. Most HP type ink jet printers can do 35ish pages/min.  Therefore, it would take said printer running at that speed, non-stop 24/7/365 135 years 328 days 3 hours 14 minutes 24 seconds to print the $600B of QE II.
