Canadians Honor Nimoy


The UPI reports; Canadians are turning the politicians on their money into Spock
"Canadians are drawing on their money to make politicians look like Spock from Star Trek, in honor of recently deceased Leonard Nimoy.
Canadian Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who appears on Canada's five dollar bill, has been the most common face to be turned into Spock.
'This series of Canadian bills was an easy target,' CDR's publisher Todd Falkowsky told Quartz. 'The existing portraits are quite large and can be improvised with easily, and the color of our $5s are the same blue as Spock's uniform."

  1. U.S. Citizens should not get the idea to do this, although I loved Mr. Spock! It actually is a federal crime if the bill cannot be reused-- here is the statute.
    PART I - CRIMES CHAPTER 17 - COINS AND CURRENCY
    § 333. Mutilation of national bank obligations
    Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or
    unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill,
    draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking
    association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or
    imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
