Yeah, so about that Christmas present Joe spent two hours preparing…
The Series I notes, constructed last Christmas using Sharpie markers and index cards, were such a runaway success that Joe opted to issue a special massage-only run this summer as an early wedding present.
Spurred by overwhelming consumer approval for his streamlined Series II collector’s edition, Joe opted to upgrade production for his Christmas 2009 run. This year’s Series III notes, which came printed on high-grade legal tender in a faux alligator skin lock box, were embellished by hand with a gold seal in the pug’s trust. According to the bank’s CEO, the notes required even more handiwork, and in keeping with previous batches, counted up from serial number 00000036.
However, unlike last year’s bonds, this one-of-a-kind collection contained only massage, dinner, laundry and garbage-removal offers and as determined as I am to ration them out, the massage certificates will absolutely go first.
