A one hundred dollar bill and a one dollar bill had outlived their usefulness. Torn, tattered and frayed, they were sent to a government facility to be taken out of circulation. As they rode side-by-side along a conveyor belt to be incinerated, they knew that their time had come to an end, so they reminisced about their lives.
The one hundred dollar bill said, “I’ve had some wonderful times. I’ve been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City. I’ve been on cruises and beach vacations. I’ve been in expensive restaurants in New York City and Los Angeles. You must have been to a lot of different places too.”
“Yes”, the one dollar bill responded. “I’ve been to the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Christian Church…”
The one hundred dollar bill interrupted, “What’s a church?”
