This wallet has, attached at the top, a thick sheaf of what looks like money, with each side of the sheath looking like the top of a 100 dollar bill. It also has what, at a glance, looks like a black credit card. Made of high quality leather. Use when buying drinks at bars, when on a date, or any other time.

       I thought this would be a wallet stocked with bad counterfiet money to discourage muggers, but this idea has merit. [+]

       [+] but where does one carry one's sheaf of real $100's?

       High quality imitation leather, I hope?

       A "Michigan Bankroll" is a big roll of one-dollar bills with a hundred-dollar bill on the outside.

       Makes you wonder what a Wisconsin Bankroll would be.

       A hunk of cheese wrapped in one dollar bills, perhaps.

       don't you have pickpockets where you live, [voice]?

       How quaint, that some countries in the world have all their different denomination banknotes the same size and shape and colour!

       One doesn't. One's equerry takes care of such mundane matters as carrying the small change.

       Yes obviously, but that makes it very awkward when you want to tip your equerry.

       what [po] said! it's quite dangerous to appear rich in some places!

       If these came into general use, the opposite effect could work - i.e. pulling out a wallet stuffed fat with £50 notes would not raise an eyebrow, as everyone would assume it was a fake one like they all have in their own bulging back pockets.
pocmloc, Dec 01 2010
  

       What if they have bulging front pockets ?

       ...then they're just glad to see you.
