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?

If we had TD run for Prezident, we could have you do the best (funniest) smear campaign ever.  Of course it would not be smear tactics as much as truth tactics.

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.
