    Great British Pounds. Sterling. The Queens Coinage. Two bob. A pony, monkey or gorilla. Squids. If it was in Ugandan Dollars id be wary, but fraud cannot be associated with the money of Our Great Nation so id say your a rich bugger sir!

    Also, fuck the nuns.

    Oh, well that sounds right. Does that mean I have to move to Europe or I'm still a piss-poor American?

    OH NO! I saw something about this on the boob-tube. I hope I'm not going to be enslaved and forced to work in a brothel.

    So are they gonna ask for my bank account now and drop all that in there? Don't suppose I could use some of that money to pay one of their employees to deliver it personally? Either way, I am tempted to give out the email address so peeps can spam the crap out of it.

    The Brits have, hands down, the most awesome and numerous words for money. No other people or currency comes even remotely close

    Down our way we call pounds 'snots' and pence 'jid'.

    This leads to calling anyone who's poor a 'jidder'.

    I love the English language.

    I knew Yorkshire was an odd place, round these parts we just call a pound a "p" but 100 is a bill.

    Anyways doods, I got another email asking for some info like my name and address. I responded by requesting for some form of identification or threatening to report the person to the authorities. Haven't heard back from them since and hope it stays that way.
