The satirical web site The Outhousers had this take on this week's news about the discontinuance of Disney Dollars. -Editor
In a move that sent shockwaves through the amusement park community, Disney World and Disneyland have been busted for running one of the
most elaborate and widespread counterfeit money schemes in history. According to a report from Robot 6, Disney parks have been producing
fake currency featuring Disney characters since 1985 in denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20 and $50, and have somehow managed to fly under
the radar of authorities for all of that time.
However, a recent sting operation that involved FBI agents dressed as costumed characters revealed that the counterfeit bills were in
circulation all over both American Disney parks, with vendors exchanging the bills for real American currency. Government forces moved
swiftly to shut down the operation, seizing over 2 billion Disney dollars in fake currency, as well as an entire money vault full of the
stuff owned by powerful Disney executive Scrooge McDuck.
At press time, authorities believed it could take years before all of the Disney Dollars could be taken out of circulation. No arrests
have been made at this time, but the hideout of local criminal organization The Beagle Boys is reportedly under surveillance, and police
and swat teams could move in at any moment. We'll keep you posted.
