I cannot understand why something like this is not illegal. I could have sworn that it was illegal to deface or destroy currency in the United States, and thus I assumed most countries would have similar laws.
Land of the free????
Not really, we have laws so you can be incarcerated at the government's whim at any time.
I probably break 3 laws a day that I am not aware off.
No one been prosecuted under the law since 1935. As late as 1980, the law was used to charge the Canadian distributor of Monty Python’s film Life of Brian; the charges were later dropped.

I have a feeling William Shatner started this whole thing... I wouldn't put it past that crazy Canuck to do something like this just for #s and giggles.
