The immortal words of Homer Simpson on the usefulness of $20:
Homer: Oh, $20?! I wanted a peanut!
Homer’s Brain: $20 can buy many peanuts.
Homer: Explain how.
Homer’s Brain: Money can be exchanged for goods and services.
Yes, Homer, $20 can get you many things:
A hipster T-shirt.
Dinner for two.
The new Eminem and Green Day CDs.
A comfy lawn chair.
4 GB of memory for your digital camera.
Wait, that last one’s actually pretty good.
You could buy any of that stuff for $20. Or you could buy something else:
Clean water for one person for 20 years.
All three for $20. Now that’s a deal worth a woohoo.
Considering donating to the Bald Birthday Benefit. You can contribute to my impending baldness, wish me a happy 30th birthday and give someone clean water for 20 years. Woohoo!
