I used to have a Coin Collection and this was my favorite 50-Cent piece...

I think Coin Collecting is a great hobby.  It teaches about history and money...two of my  favorite subjects, and when I was a kid I had a small coin collection.  This was the best half dollar that I had...a mid-1830s one that was in good condition.  Today there is another 50 Cent in the news, and he is our daily Jack Ass.  I actually like 50 Cent...the rapper/actor.  I'm not a fan of his rapping but I find some of the movies that he is in to be entertaining.  And whenever I fly into Bradley Airport in Hartford Connecticut I always look outside the window because you can see the ridiculous mansion that helped bankrupt him (just like it did to Mike Tyson...the guy he bought it from...) and think about the parties I wasn't invited to...

              THIS IS NOT A HOTEL.  IT'S IRON MIKE'S AND 50 CENT'S OLD CRIB.  WHEN THEY HAD MONEY.

But today 50 cent can only be described as a Jack Ass because he did what all rappers like to do...he posted pictures of himself seemingly bathing in wads of cash on line on his Instagram account.  However, what makes 50 different is that he seems to have forgotten that just last summer he declared bankruptcy and said he could have between $10 - 50 million of debt.  And 50 also didn't seem to anticipate that the Judge from his bankruptcy case became one of his followers on Instagram, and saw the picture.

Here is what the AP said:  "Rapper 50 Cent has been ordered to appear in bankruptcy court in Connecticut to explain photos showing him with wads of cash.  The Wall Street Journal reports that Judge Ann Nevins told the rapper's lawyer Thursday that several photos posted on Instagram made her concerned about allegations 50 Cent wasn't being truthful about his finances." 

Maybe 50 can say he was just playing with monopoly money and get a sleazy lawyer and get away with it, but come fit - ee...don't be such a dumb...

JACK ASS!!!
