Dirty money

A very rich fellow who owns a very elegant hair salon is not so rich that he will not stoop to gather up a $5 bill that someone has inadvertently dropped to the sidewalk.  But it is filthy lucre -- the bill is encrusted with the mud of winter -- and so the very wealthy fellow, not to be discouraged, before he washes the next customer's hair, scrubs that $5 bill for all he (and the bill) is worth! Luckily the green doesn't fade; only the muck.

[This one really happened!]
