This is very, very creative. :)

Great idea... I was thinking of something similar myself as here in Taiwan, they sell fake money that is one sided for the buddhists to burn... Us teachers use it to play games and such... Lots of fun can be had... I just didn't think anyone would recognize the New Taiwan $1000 bill...

I would have thought you might have gone with a photocopy though...

Fun shot.

What do you use in the bathroom? Just curious.

Thats funny, but if you had that much money to waste would you really check you own oil? Great indulgence photo!
06/15/2006 09:34:58 PM
This is my favorite so far, thanks for making me laugh. Got to give a 10 just for the laugh!

Looks more like extravagance than indulgence. 3

Now that's indulgence. Clever idea, nicely photographed.

I would have preffered a bit oil on the end of the stick! But nice idea.
06/14/2006 03:48:47 PM
Good way to make a point.
