Have you heard the one about the guy with the one million dollar bill at Wal-Mart?  Well, let me tell ya, friend, this one is no joke!  A Lexington, North Carolina man actually did try to buy his Wal-Mart goods, including a vacuum cleaner and microwave oven, with a one million dollar bill and had the gumption to be insistent that the darn thing was real.  The fellow was eventually detained and charged with “attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument.”  What I find the most mind-boggling is that this guy must’ve actually thought the average Wal-Mart cashier had enough dough to hand him over $999,000 in change!  Now that’s what I call chutzpah!!!
