Cashing InTwo the Novelty

(On the novelty of President Trump's face already on U.S. currency)

Look what only $20.00 can buy you: 

A (single) $2 Dollar Bill with Donald Trump's face on it~!
(and Melania's face, along with that of Thomas Jefferson)



HURRY, AVOID THE RUSH~!  ONLY 25,000 PRINTED~!  

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! ORDER WITHIN THE NEXT 2 HOURS AND GET FREE-- 
..... ENDLESS EMAIL OFFERS FOR MORE CRAP FROM US.

I think this might just be illegal, to add artwork to legal U.S. Currency, but hey, who spends $2 dollar bills anymore?  That's right, people desperate for drugs... LOL.  
From moneyfactory(dot)gov., this discouragement: 

Defacement of currency is a violation of Title 18, Section 333 of the United States Code. Under this provision, currency defacement is generally defined as follows: Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

But not this $2 Dollar bill, it's "value" is Twenty Smackers! 
Have a garden-planting, warm March weekend, alright?!
