Park Bench

Jen and I are seated in Washington Square Park. A disheveled man approaches us and sits down next to us.

Man (while examining a $5 bill): "What do you think of this? You think it's real? No, truly."
He hands me the bill. I examine it pretty closely.
Me: "Well, that looks pretty legitimate, it's even got the watermark."
I hand it back.
Man: "So you like my work, huh? It's a good thing I've got about 10,000 more of them at home!"
The man starts to walk away.
Me: "Take it easy, man."
Man (turning around): "No, no, YOU take it easy."
