Police in Kentucky are looking for a customer who succeeded in paying for a $2 order
at a fast-food restaurant with a (1) phony $200 bill (2) featuring a picture of President George
W. Bush and (3) a depiction of the White House with a lawn sign
saying, "We like (4) broccoli."
Authorities say the female (5) cashier at a Dairy Queen in
Danville even gave (6) the culprit $198 in real money as change. "Somebody at a
drive-in ordered some food and passed a $200 (7) novelty bill
with George Bush on it,'' a Danville Police (8) Detective said. "At
a distance it looks like a real bill, it's got the green color," the detective said when
asked how the cashier possibly could mistake it for (9) genuine money.
The (10) cartoonish
bill was accepted on Sunday evening by the Dairy Queen cashier (11) despite having
Bush on one side and (12) an oil well on the other. The phony bill also depicted the
White House lawn with yard signs reading "U.S. deserves a tax cut",
"No more (13) scandals", and "We like broccoli", the last (14) apparently referring
to Bush's father's admitted dislike for the vegetable.
Because there is no actual $200 (15) currency,
the culprit could face a charge of (16) theft by (17) deception but not counterfeiting.
