A failed forgery suspect should have studied his presidents.
The Chicago man, who craved dairy delights, ordered two milkshakes and handed over the phony dough. But a careful cashier immediately noticed something odd. Instead of Benjamin Franklin staring back, it was President Abraham Lincoln, according to the police report.
"It was pretty easy to pick out," said Deputy Chief Todd Fulton.
The fake $100 bill was likely altered from a $5 bill, he said.
Police said when Barnett got a whiff the jig was up, he walked out and drove off. Employees dialed 911. Officers nabbed him.
All forger-wannabes should learn whose face belong on what bills before trying to pull a fast one.
