December 27th, 2007 by Kevin Murphy · 23 Comments

Drop everything you’re doing and help me out here! This kind of sinister conspiracy can’t go on if whistleblowers like us keep vigilant!

new 50 First, take a look at this. It’s the most recent version of the Fifty Dollar bill…

old Ed Now take a look at the most recent version of Ed Asner, and…

no coincidence Who made this decision? Why weren’t we informed? How much did Asner make off this – certainly more than a measley fifty! How the hell do these things happen? Come on people, help me out here! I can’t watch everything twenty-four-seven-three-sixty-five! I’m only one man here! Let’s keep on top of these things, okay?

    Asner said “I want to be on the fifty and I want the luscious hair of Sir Anthony Hopkins.”

    Ed Asner in “White House, Black Heart: the Ulysses S. Grant Story.” Coming to Lifetime Television in 2008.

    More importantly, who’s buried in Asner’s Tomb?

    Especially since Ed’s alive and all…

  • 4 Clint on Dec 27, 2007 at 9:59 am

    Even more importantly, did Ulysses S. Grant like “spunk?”

    We’re through the looking glass here people!

    Don’t look at me. I still confuse Ed Asner with Ed Koch.

    “Come on people, help me out here! I can’t watch everything twenty-four-seven-three-sixty-five! I’m only one man here! Let’s keep on top of these things, okay?”

    My deepest apologies. I’ll try to do better.

    For starters, I must alert you to the fact that Alan Thicke’s son, Robin Thicke, composed a song entitled “Sexual Capacity” for the soundtrack of “Striptease.” I just thought you should know, as this is clearly a matter of national security.

    I think we all know where this is leading…

    George Washington showing subtle resemblance to Gavin McLeod. Abraham Lincoln taking on Ted Knight-like qualities.

    Further proof that Mary Tyler Moore is one of the true rulers of the world, if not the supreme empress herself.

    Clear evidence of reincarnation.

    He hated spunk!!

  • 11 SarahCanuck on Dec 27, 2007 at 11:30 am

    Hey, I like Ed Asner. I’m all for it.

  • 12 Edgewriter on Dec 27, 2007 at 11:51 am

    If you’re not going to put Ed Asner on a bill, who are you going to put on one. Can you think of anyone more deserving? Not I, friend.

    Not I.

    I suspect that one of the reason Mr. Asner’s face was used as a model was because of the continuing war against counterfeiting. I mean, let’s be honest here people, the man hours needed to reproduce those eyebrows would deter even the most hardened criminal type.

    No conspiracy here folks. Move along…

    Ed Asner was president of the Screen Actors Guild, a known communist front organization.

  • 15 mrbasehart on Dec 27, 2007 at 8:04 pm

    I’m pretty sure it’s because Ed Asner is also a part-time nude model. He does the state university circuits.

    You know, my stepdad has been referring to the current $20 bill as “the George Harrison twenty” since the moment he laid eyes on it.

    It’s like LIVING IN A PHILIP K. DICK NOVEL!!!!!!!

  • 18 KD on Dec 28, 2007 at 1:04 pm

    Kevin, don’t look at it. Spend it!

  • 19 Virginia Corbett on Dec 30, 2007 at 7:59 pm

    Santa is on the Twenty? Can only people on the GOOD list spend them?

    Hey…well, better Ed Asner than Ernest Borgnine.

    And judging from his picture there? Those two probably had to have an eyebrow-duel for it. Seriously. XD

  • 21 JackTheRiffer on Jan 14, 2008 at 12:51 pm

    Wait right there! Are you putting down Ernest Borgnine? Need I remind you of the timeless classic “Airwolf”?

  • 22 Alicia on Jan 30, 2008 at 12:13 am

    “Wait right there! Are you putting down Ernest Borgnine? Need I remind you of the timeless classic “Airwolf”?”

    How ’bout a little number called “Merlin’s Shop of Mystical Wonders”?

    I like David Ogden Stiers on the $10 better.
