Moron of the Day: I'm Rich Beyotch!

"We don't have 360 billion dollars." ---- "Hwat?"

I don't even know where to start with this story:
A man has been accused of attempting to pass a $360 billion check, which he claims was given to him by his girlfriend’s mother to start a record business, Fort Worth police said.

Charles Ray Fuller Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, was arrested on April 22 on an accusation of forgery, police said.

Police responded to a report of a man attempting to pass the check about 4 p.m. that day at the Chase bank in the 8600 block of South Hulen Street, Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said.

The personal check was not made out to Mr. Fuller and when the bank contacted the check owner, the woman said she did not write a check for $360 billion.

Seriously, read that a few times and really let it sink in. Now, look at the guy's picture. Go on, I'll be here when you get back.

Now, try to wrap your mind around THIS:
Mr. Fuller was also accused of unlawful carrying of a weapon and possession of marijuana, Lt. Henderson said. He may also face a theft charge in Crowley.

I don't fucking believe it.

So, to sum this story up, a man goes into a bank with a personal check for 360 billion with a B dollars and tries to CASH it. That would be almost half of all circulated U.S. currency and most certainly would not be contained in the vaults or cashier's drawer of a single bank.

Second, I'd love to see the house his girlfriend's mother lives in. I'd wager a lot (not $360 billion, mind you) that her house might suggest she doesn't, in fact, possess those levels of cash assets. If not, perhaps Jonathan Lee Riches was suing the wrong people.

You know what would be great? Those two ending up in prison together. These two men who have absolutely no understanding of the size of numbers could sit in their cells and sue each other and write checks to each other.
