Purring Paperwork

This document is original if...
  [vote for,

Checks have more and more counterfeit protections on them: microprinting, woven paper, and so on. Some have a little heat-sensitive logo that you rub with your finger, and it temporarily disappears or changes color.

I want to take this last concept one step further. Print the check on a plastic film and add a miniature electronic sound module. When you rub the right spot, the check says "aaaaaaahh" or purrs like a cat.

       A bit bulky, isn't it?

       But, then they might do away with the microprinting and I wouldn't be able to impress people by reading it without any sort of magnification.   

       (Edit: Yes, it does come in handy. I am great at parties; a regular barrel of laughs. You should see me write really, really small. It's a laugh riot.)

       That must come in handy.

Woaf! I've never seen any of these anywhere other than on the roofs and bonnets of Transformers, as a means of determining their Autobotnicity or Decepteconerry.

Make the surface textured, run your finger nail over it. The vibrations will sound like something.

       Yes there are inks on some documents that change color.   

       how about when you rub it it says "a little to the left please....oh yeah thats the spot, this is the original document....."   

       gives a whole new level of excitement for the typing pool!
