Day 15: If George Washington was a pirate

Day 15’s assignment was:  “What can you do with a just a dollar? Use a dollar bill as your medium or inspiration today. ”

Since I had done origami for Day 3 I decided that today I would have to do something different.

During my Chasing Summer trip a few months ago, I went to a bar in Key West whose walls were covered from floor to ceiling in defaced dollar bills.

Hundreds upon hundreds of dollars lay within grasp, however they were totally worthless. It was a cool idea, but also seemed like such a waste just to scrawl a name on there or something like “Vegans Rule”.

I decided that if I was going to deface a dollar bill today, I might as well make it funny (Also, I was inspired by a post)

After a visit to Crime and Punishment earlier today, I modeled George Washington after a buccaneer. Of course, he needed a catchphrase to go with his amazing moustache…

  1. Went to a bar like this called The Siesta Key Oyster Bar this past summer. They had the same dollar bill “art” at their place. They said it was a tradition that fishermen used to do in the mornings before going out. If they came back to the bar after a bad day of no fish to sell, they would at least have some cash to buy a drink at the bar.

    I climbed up on the bar and put one on the ceiling protected by the ceiling fan. I wrote my 3 year old daughter’s name on it mentally planning a trip back their when she’s older to check it out.
