Weird money statistics and financial facts from around the web
Funny money statistics and facts are that even weirder than that Chevy Chase movie.
If you do a Google search for “funny money” you get some funny search results, outside the 2006 comedy. Our favorite results are the conflicting views on what “funny money” means. Merriam Webster
says it simply means counterfeit money or money with artificially inflated value. The top Urban Dictionary definition
says it refers to small denominations of bills used for tipping at strip clubs. By contrast, Collins Dictionary
says it can refer to sums of money so large as to be unreal. Funny that it can mean so many things. In the Debt.com world, it refers to financial statistics and personal finance stories that we find hilarious/baffling/unbelievable. You can find all our original Funny Money articles here, as well as some more funny money facts below. And just to note: This weekly feature evolved into our By the Numbers
series; it features five weird financial statistics every week.
