Scrooged?


Here’s the site of that blogger who claims to have traded up from a paper clip to a house. I must admit I’m skeptical.

The whole affair sounds like a old Scrooge McDuck story I vaguely remember reading as a kid - something about Donald tricking Unca Scrooge into thinking fish was the new legal tender. Step by step, in a manner simliar to the one described above, Scrooge amasses a fortune - in fish.

Any Carl Barks fans out there who can refresh my memory?

UPDATE: Thanks, Kevin...
