Based on his picture he should use some of those zeros and buy some sobriety.

Link is broken for me. Maybe that's because I'm in Florida.

Story has to be fake. If this was really Florida the moron teller would have cashed the check and then run off with guy to get married. And they would be on welfare.

Re: man tries to cash a check for $368 Billion. Where??

This statement alone is some really bad Onion style writing

“It’s always been my dream to own the best Italian restaurant in the earth,” Waters told police. “I’m 10% Italian. Cooking authentic Italian food is in my blood. I had planned to make the restaurant 80 million sq. feet and able to accommodated (sic) 30 million eaters at once, plus it was gonna be totally underwater so people could look at sharks while they ate. But the bank wouldn’t give me my money they owed me. Tito said the check was good for any amount I wanted to write it for. So blame Tito, not me. I’m as innocent as a schoolgirl.”

The Jacksonville Sun Times posted about it, but they may have been copying/pasting.

Bank of America? I suspect Vibiana was somehow behind this.
