A well-worn one-dollar bill and a similarly distressed fifty-dollar bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank
to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation.

The fifty-dollar bill reminisced about its travels all over the country. "I've had a pretty good life,"
the $50 proclaimed. "Why I've been to  Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York, 
performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean."

"Wow!"  said the one-dollar bill. "You've really had an exciting life!"

"So  tell me," says the fifty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?"

The one dollar bill replies, "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church, the  Baptist Church, the Lutheran Church..."

The fifty-dollar bill  interrupts, "What's a church?"
