Paula Deen just made a mental note to only get $50 bills from the ATM in the future…
Politico says that United States Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce that Andrew Jackson (FYI: AJ was the 7th POTUS and not the unknown 6 member of the Jackson 5) is out as the main face of the $20 bill and Harriet Tubman is in. I’m surprised Sofia Vergara isn’t the new face of the $20 bill since that trick is the face of EVERYTHING. Andrew Jackson isn’t totally off of the $20 bill. There’s a good chance his face will be moved to the back of the bill. Ha.
Alexander Hamilton will still be the face of the $10 bill, sort of. Alexander Hamilton will stay on the $10, but he’ll be played by Lin-Manuel Miranda. (I made that second part up, but you know they considered it.)
A few months ago, Jack Lew said that he was thinking of replacing Alexander Hamilton with a woman. This apparently caused a mini-shit storm, because fans of Hamilton (the person, not the musical) believed he should stay since he helped create the Treasury Department. Critics felt like Andrew Jackson should get the boot because of that whole “Indian Removal Act” shit. Of course, Hamilton the musical being a gigantic hit helped the movement to keep Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill.
“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda even directly lobbied Lew last month on Hamilton’s behalf, after which Miranda said Lew told him “you’re going to be very happy” with the redesign plans.
There’s also plans to put the faces of the leaders of the women’s suffrage movement on the back of the $10 bill, and civil rights leaders will be on the other side of the $5 bill. The Harriet Tubman $20 bill probably won’t be ready until 2020. They need to put a rush order on that bill and get it out tomorrow. I mean, many of us hardly use cash now, so by 2020, we’ll be paying for crap with the Apple microchip installed under our fingertip.
And when it was announced that a woman would most likely be the new face of the $10 bill, I immediately hoped that one of our greatest Americans Shauna Sand would grace it with her natural beauty. But now that I think about it, she should be the new face of the $1 bill. Just think of a $1 with the Empress of Lucite’s face on it stuck to the greasy ass cheek of a day-shift stripper at a truck stop strip club. That brings new meaning to “America the beautiful!”
Here’s the Empress of Lucite (and my pick for the face of the $1 bill) being gorgeous last summer.
