So 53-year-old Michael Williams finished his lunch at an Applebee's in South Carolina, and he pulled out his credit car to pay.
His card was declined, so with a little embarassment, he went to his back-up payment plan: he fetched the $1 Trillion bill he carried around in his wallet.
Now you, and I, and the waitress, and the waitress' dog know that the U.S. Mint has never issued $1 trillion bills. We all also know that it's highly unlikely that even on the busiest of nights an Applebee's would be able to break one.
Police ended up arresting the dufus, but it was for another outstanding warrant ~not for trying to use the phony bill.
