Fame at a Price

House star Hugh Laurie on a U.S. $20 bill (see photo at right)? Lovely actress Keira Knightly on an Australian $5 bill? George W. Bush fronting Iraqi money (his forehead paired with Saddam Hussein’s bearded chin)? A site called Freaking News invited Photoshop users to fold banknotes in half, lengthwise, and then pair the remaining half of whichever visage appeared on that bill with the balancing half of some celebrity’s face. The 37 clever results of that contest can be found here. I’m especially fond of the well-presented Gene Wilder $1 bill.
