Subject: RE: BS: Mid 20th Century term for US paper money
Last time I was in Canada I found I had to pay attention and read the denominations on the money there, paper and coin. Looneys and all of that--it makes you work a little harder to shop!

The slang discussed above brings to mind James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, and W.C. Fields films.
