I got a Canadian quarter

    In my change, I noted that amongst my good, honest American money, I had a Canadian quarter. I was surprised it didn't burn a hole in my pocket.
    I looks like an American quarter, same size, same edge, even though it lacks the American two-tone. Check it out, if you look at American quarters, it looks like a copper line on the edge.
    Anyway, it has Elizabeth II on one side and a moose on another. I guess at the current exchange rate, it is worth about 30 cents American.
    So the question is, what do I do with me Canadian quarter? I think spending it in America is a crime. A felony even. As a good, God-fearing American, I think the possession of foreign currency is an affront to both my dear Jesus and, possibly, Don Knotts.
    I am a little confused as to which one is more important.
    So my fellow Americans and to the dirty Canuckstanis fouling the board, what do I do with my Canadian quarter?

    Keep it in a jar until the next Canadian SJ outing. Or send it to me and I'll buy you some bubble gum.

    Let it appreciate in value until it's worth one hour of an Emperor VIP girl's time.

    And then you're really on your way. Before you know it you'll own your own whale blubber curing shack or something.

    Well, I'll be go to Heaven. It is a caribou. Another reason to cast the Canadian quarter back into the firepits of Hell.
    Wikipedia says in the sinful, Satan worshipping part of Canada, they call the quarter there, the Trente Sous. Because by Franco-Canuckistani counting, a quarter is 30 cents.

    Hell, send it to me.

    It's worth more than our money, after all.

    Trade it for a U.S. dollar ... they're almost the same.

    When I came back from Canada I had some spare change and used it along with my American change back here. And Jones, I thought Caribou is a delicious alcoholic drink up North. All I know is I had a drink by that name in Quebec and it was DEE-lightful.
