The Funniest Highly Illegal Defaced $5 Bills Featuring Birthday Boy Abe Lincoln

By 02.12.13

There have been 308 movies featuring Abraham Lincoln, according to NorthJersey.com, making him far and away the most mimicked former president in cinematic history. He’s also, as we’ve previously documented through Facebook rumors and Evil Dead photoshops, extremely popular online, eliciting the kind of fandom that only one other politician, Selina Meyer, can equal. (Is that just an excuse to mention Veep? Yes, it is.)

My favorite form of Lincoln Internet flattery is highly illegal and just as hilarious: defacing $5 bills. There’s Mario Lincoln, Bill Murray Lincoln, Shot in the Head Lincoln, and tons more, all of which are SO much better than defaced Andrew Jackson currency. SUCK IT NUMBER SEVEN. Here are a few of our favorite $5 tweaks.
