Fake cash rules everything around me
If there’s someone flashing more cash then usual, report them. According to the Regina Police there’s been a bit of a counterfeiting problem in Regina. They’ve collected over thirty faked bills.

Remember when he said, “Oriental people work like dogs. … They’re slowly taking over”? Good times.
