Taking inspiration from Abbie Hoffman’s legendary stock exchange prank, our friend Joey Skaggs posted this call to action last week on his blog The Art of the Prank:
Calling All Pranksters (and non-pranksters too)!
Greed, dishonesty, government deregulation and lack of oversight got us into the largest global financial crisis since the Depression. Express your outrage at having to bail out the bastards while they pass the buck! Print these “Useless Bucks” and put them in circulation. In other words, Pass the Buck… back. Take them to your financial and banking districts and give them away; Toss them from high places; Place them on those nearly useless ATM machines; Start your own bail-out program by giving six useless hundred dollar bills to all your friends. Do anything you want with them, just don’t try to spend them!! They’re useless.
