My new GOD IS FAKE money stamp!

I realize I’m not the originator of this, I do not know who made the one I first saw, but when I did I knew it was good. So the other day I couldn’t help myself, stopped off at my local rubber stamp store and had one made just for me! My very own GOD IS FAKE stamp! And Christ, it’s FUN!

So after stamping all the bills in my wallet and my secret stash under my mattress, all my friends’ bills, and asking everyone I came into contact with for a dollar, which I’d stamp & return, I withdrew all my savings, stamped it, every last one, and redeposited it to guarantee my money was branded MY MONEY!

But my peace of mind was short lived.

After a long day of stamping every bill I encountered, I remembered what I always remember: The Bible. THE BIBLE!! And immediately I got to work stamping out God verse by verse, page by page, all night long until the sun came up.

I can’t say enough how satisfying blotting out the word God can be. I’ve even started accepting tracts from proselytizers again just to show off my new stamp to them!

I’m still not entirely happy with the legibility of the “IS FAKE” portion so I’m stopping back at the stamp maker’s with a thinner, simpler font. I’ll be sure to let you know how that all goes. Also, to be quite honest, I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to be doing this, so please, let’s keep this between you and me. I suppose that also explains why it’s so much fun. And best of all this takes care of my stocking-stuffers for everyone on my shopping list this Xmas (emphisizing the “X”). [Available as of Nov. 19th, 2009]

    The good news is with our over populated prisons you’ll find it hard to find a judge who will give you time, unless you get some super fundy judge. If anything you’ll get a small fine, which you can pay with stamped bills.

    The law specifically states to alter the dollar to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued. Since the bill is still fit to be issued and used, I think Bob is safe.

    On the legality of Normal Bob’s stamping, the code John cited reads:

    Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

    As far as I can tell, Bob has not manifested the specific intent to render the stamped bills unfit to be reissued. Even if the government somehow concluded that the stamp did render the bill unfit to be reissued, Bob is not so intending.

    If I don’t have a spare piece of paper to write a number down, I’ll pull out my wallet and write it on whatever piece of paper I have in there. Is that illegal? I hardly think so. You think a few numbers on a bank note or “God is fake” is going to make it unusable? Money is money. As long as it’s legit and clearly states how much it’s worth- it’s useable.

    I dig it! Though I agree with Alexi. “Is fake” would make the stamp usable for not only God, but the Holy Spirit and arguably Jesus (though he may have actually existed). Hell, pick your favorite “higher power”!

    Ooo! How much would it cost to mass market them and sell them on your site with the Jesus Dress Up magnets? Talk about evangelical atheism! Can somebody do the math and find out how long it would take a thousand atheists to mark all the bills currently in circulation? I’ve heard there’s something like 16 million of us in the US alone. What if we ALL had a stamp? I’m getting excited. Now I have to go find a store that makes those things. Michaels? Kinkos? Thanks for the inspiration Bob… I love you as always…

    Some people might think they have the interpretation of this law “down pat”
    but i’ll tell you what:

    This is the U.S. Treasury Dept. you’re dealing with here.

    They don’t answer to local, state police or even the F.B.I.
    and they are immune to “arrest” from all.

    All it takes is one Born-Again Treasury agent to take
    a disliking to you and that’s it.

    I would NOT chance an issue like THAT!!

    If you get around to making some of these for the right price ($5?) I’d pick up several. Hilarious. I know I speak for lazy atheists everywhere when I say: Bob, make some for us to buy!
