Money Madness Part I

Yes, there are Communists under your bed.  That is if you have a Kennedy half-dollar down there with the dust bunnies.  Or should I say dust comrades?  Apparently in the 1960's some folks thought there was a hammer and sickle on JFK's coin.  In actuality what you have is a stylized rendition of the artist's initials.  You can see it right above 'WE'.  Gilbert Roberts never meant for his mark to scare people.  Then again the Pop Rocks people never thought they'd be accused of producing a product that, when combined with soda pop, makes people explode.  Inexplicable.
