If Money Could Talk

In November, Hyung Yang was arrested for operating a motor vehicle with a suspended/revoked drivers license in DeKalb County, GA.

This was the official mugshot of Mr. Yang that authorities released:

 Mugshot: Hyung Yang

I expected the 170 pound Yang to be more visible in the image, but somehow he was able to blend in with his possessions. 

Not being able to find the defendant, I then focused on the $180 or so in cash. 

What if money could talk?*

What would it want to buy?

Corn dogs?

A fairy princess outfit?

Diapers?

Unfortunately, I think Mr. Yang's funds were used to secure his bond from jail, but there is hope for the money in your wallet or purse.

What is your money demanding to be spent on?

*Confession: Seeing the money in the photo triggered a memory of the SpongeBob SquarePants episode in which Mr. Krabs' cash speaks to him and demands to be spent on certain items like corn dogs, fairy princess outfits, and diapers.  

The transcript of that episode, Money Talks, is here

Ha.. somewhere there a photo depicting the contents of his pockets and it looks just like him.

These days, I hardly hear a whisper from my money. Instead, it uses the silence of a debit card to empty my coffers! LOL

My money would laugh as it goes and pays the bills

Pat's right -- before it's earned, the bills are yelling for it. They are louder than the money itself, so they get most of it.

My money is fighting amongst itself. It wants to be spent on new bedding, wall decor, window treatments, spring clothing and summer shoes. The list is endless....

I think one too many episodes on the SpongeBob for sure.... Great mug shot, he looks super thin in it, almost translucent!

That is the strangest mugshot I've ever seen... even after Justin Bieber smiling.

what we choose to spend out money on says much about what kind of people we are...

If money could talk? My cash is building up in anticipation of yard sale season ;-)

Maybe he's camera shy. Or a vampire. Can you take pictures of vampires?

TOo funny. How can that stuff be his mug shot. At work we take passport photos, and they don't want people to show their teeth. You tell people they can't show their teeth when they smile and it's like you said the picture has to be a mugshot. lol

Stephanie Faris said...

I thought mugshots always had to be of the person. Why aren't they showing him to the public?

Chrys Fey said...

If my money could talk it would say, "Where are you?" Because I don't have any money. haha ;)

Mary Kirkland said...

That's kinda funny. If my money could talk it would say to buy a rib eye steak because it's owner hasn't had one in a while. lol

Oops, someone flubbed releasing that shot instead of his face!
