The Bank of Canada is really upset with what Canadians are doing to their five dollar bills. The bill features the country’s seventh Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
And he can be turned into one hell of a Spock!
Ok, that is absolutely spot on and hilarious. Star Trek fans have been “Spocking” poor Sir Wilfrid Laurier since the death of Leonard Nimoy.
Now.. Apparently “Spocking” the Canadian money is NOT illegal but the Bank of Canada really wants them to stop!
DangerousMinds “” There are important reasons why it should not be done. Writing on a bank note may interfere with the security features and reduces its lifespan. Markings on a note may also prevent it from being accepted in a transaction. Furthermore, the Bank of Canada feels that writing and markings on bank notes are inappropriate as they are a symbol of our country and a source of national pride.””
Keep it up Canada!
