Why is it sticky?
Has any other unit of currency been so debased and denigrated as the two dollar bill? If someone hands you one, it is with a pause of embarrassment. Shame at handing it to you face to face.
"Here. Here's some stripper money. It was probably recently wedged in some ass crack. Sorry about that."
It would make no difference that the bill was a crisp, newly minted note. It might be clean, but it was dirty by association.
Poor Jefferson. Founding father relegated to a g-string stuffing.
At least he's still got the nickel.
