A random sampling of dollar bills from major U.S. cities found that more than 70 percent tested positive for the virus that causes genital warts.

  • I think that comes from the strippers who fish out dollar bills from their butts (and then some).

  • Okay, I'm convinced that this is a completely unfounded statement. I can't find anything at all that references any such study on google or pubmed.

  • derp. not possible :P there might be alot of things found on a dollar bill, but the HPV virus isnt one of them :P It cant survive on something like that for any extended peroid of time.

  • BFD. About the same percentage of PEOPLE you test will test positive for HPV. Since you're far more likely to rub another person against your privates than a dollar bill, I think worrying about the money isn't so much an issue.
