So I have been meaning to take a picture of this dollar since last week when I went to get a bagel from Korean Bagel (It’s a little typical “Bodega” run by a very nice Korean couple and they have some of the best bagels…. but that is a different story). Anyway I got this dollar as change but did not notice until a few days later. I laughed because it really just sums up everything that has been going on with the stock market and in a way everything that I have been ging through lately. I have been very hesitant to spend it and now after shooting it for you people to enjoy I have decided that I am going to save it….. Even though thay also dated it on the back ( 9-20-07) so it was actually written a year ago.

Also I don’t know what the deal is with the “dollar dollar” or the lack of proper punctuation after “My” but it still makes me laugh because I did not notice it until I tried to spend it several days later.

Thanks for sharing this gem, Nathan. It really made my day!

  4. I’d like to find more dollars in my wallet (annotated or otherwise) but I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon. 😉

  6. That’s cute, even though he no longer has his “fuckin dollar” dollar. You know what they say- if you love something, set it free!

  8. I get the grammar thing, to be less confusing it should’ve been in quotes maybe, like My “At Least I Have A Fuckin Dollar” Dollar. Where is this bodega? Always looking for more good bagels in the Point.

  10. I can’t believe what interest this little dollar has. It’s kind of funny and I’m glad that everyone else finds it as funny as I do.

    As for the bagels… I’m sorry to tell you that they are in Carroll Gardens not in Greenpoint. Sorry.
