Littering is against the law in North Dakota

Ok, I'm all for free speech and all that jazz, but I do have a problem with people littering public places with propaganda. I was at NDSU today and had to use the restroom. As I was washing up I noticed some money laying around here and there. On closer inspection, they appeared to be $1,000,000 bills! I picked one up and flipped it over and behold - Once again, someone is trying to save me. What a waste of trees and ink. It's one thing to hand them out to people. That's fine. But it is quite another thing to dirty up our public spaces with all this paper. Frankly the folks who drop these around campus should be cited for littering.

Here's an idea: take them to the bank, try to deposit them in your account (since there is no indication they are non-negotiable) and then maybe the Feds will go after them for counterfeiting.

So ... what is this group hoping that you'll think?

"Oh, you fooled me into picking up a fake bill! I guess I'll just have to convert to Christianity!"

I've seen these sorts of tracts before. Around here, they're usually fake twenty or hundred dollar bills.

I'm a student at NDSU, and I've been told thru some fun comic phamplets left around that the Beatles are Satan's music. And their studio manager is...drumroll please... "Mr. Luc Afer" Oh the wit.
