    Dane jailed after monopoly money defence

    A Danish man was sentenced to 25 days in jail after trying to buy a pizza with fake banknotes he said his grandchildren had made for a game of Monopoly.

    The 57-year-old said he had rented two colour photocopiers to make extra fake money for the regular family games of Finans, a Danish version of the popular board game, the news agency Ritzau reported.

    He said he had simply made a mistake when he tried to pay for pizza and ice cream with a fake 500 crown note.

    The court, after hearing that he had been carrying 57,000 crowns worth of forged notes when he was arrested, followed one of the Monopoly game's instructions and told him "go to jail".

    Hurry, whoever has an extra get out of jail free card needs to send it to him ASAP.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
