Because the money circulates, you should just print something on it (URL or something like that), buy a chocolate in a local store for it, and let the world see your message.

I just wonder whether the national banks would soon withdraw the bills with ads on them.

       I really want to know the brand of Queen Elizabeth's moustache wax. She usually has a magnificent black and bushy growth on the five dollar bills that pass through my hands.. :p

       [Consul] - much as I would love to see our Queen adorning dollar bills, I fear that the American public would have something to say about this.
