    DALLAS, TX April 15, 2003 - Mint Recalls Texas Quarters

    The United States Treasury has announced they are recalling the new Texas quarters. "We are recalling all of the new Texas quarters that were recently issued, "Treasury Undersecretary Russell Shackelford said in a press conference Monday.

    "This comes in the wake of numerous reports to this agency that the quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other coin-operated devices."

    "We believe the problem lies in a design flaw," said Shackelford. The winning design for the Texas quarter was submitted by Texas A&M student William Doutrieux.

    "Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices."

    I love Aggie jokes. I do some recruiting at Aggieland and they normally have a stock of them for me when I show up.
