Banking Puns

  • Funny clean pun about heads or tails.A spokesperson for the U.S. Mint announced that a new fifty-cent piece was being issued to honor two great American patriots.

    On one side of the coin would be Teddy Roosevelt and on the other side, Nathan Hale.

    Asked why two people were going to be on the same coin, the spokesman replied, "Now, when you toss a coin you can simply call.... 'Ted's or Hale's'."

  • bank punWe are all used to the conveniences of a modern bank.

    While there have been money lenders throughout the ages, full service banks are a relatively new phenomenon. Molan Cache is usually considered the man who developed modern banking as we know it today. He enlisted the aid of Tomas Benes, the Count of Prague and chief financial advisor of King Charles II. The two were able to convince the Bohemian monarch to finance this new experiment in banking.

    So really, credit should go to a Czech king, a count and Cache.
