Who would you put on a US banknote?

Discussion in 'US' started by Invicta, Sep 2, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I had an interesting conversation with a number of US Military colleagues earlier this week. Whilst talking about money and our respective currencies in general, I posed the following question; if the US government were to change the design of its banknotes and print the images of famous Americans on the opposite side to the former presidents, who would you pick and why?

    We came up with the following selection criteria:

    1. Candidates must have been dead for at least 50 years in order to ensure that they have achieved enduring fame.
    2. No other former presidents are eligible for inclusion as this particular office is already represented on US banknotes.


    After a good deal of discussion and arguement we came up with the following candidates:

    Henry Ford
    Thomas Edison
    Eleanor Roosevelt
    James Fennimore Cooper
    Mark Twain
    Gen George C Marshall
    Lewis and Clarke

    So, the question is; who would you pick and why?

    As one of the criteria for inclusion appears to be that the person is dead, may I suggest:

    Hiliary Clinton :D
     
  6. Bill Hicks....

    Edit to add:

    If they absolutely must be 50+ years then Lee,Grant and stonewall Jackson.
     
  7. $1 - Chuck Norris
    $5 - Phil Silvers AKA Sgt Bilko
    $10 - Adolf Hitler

    He may not have been dead for over 50 years but I wish the mongo fucking cunt had been.

    He fit the bill perfectly for the septics.

    Edit: don't google at work FFS!
