Scrooge McDuck's money bin

2007-10-25 20:50:45.310368+00 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

Argh. Way busy. Need to make a batch of truffles for the re-opening of Buttercup in San Anselmo, have lots of paying work to do, Charlene is similarly busy so we never see each other, and I feel like most of my contribution to Flutterby for the past few has just been posting MetaFilter links. But when I saw this one fly by while waiting for a compile, I thought of a particular Flutterby participant who may or may not want to be singled out on this, but...

A model of Scrooge McDuck's money bin, the MeFi entry is titled "The total value of all your mines, mills, money bins, and so fourth is one multiplujillion, nine obsquatumatillion, six hundred and twenty-three dollars and sixty-two cents!".

I like the sound of obsquatumatillion.

I'm not sure if it's me who you were thinking of, but I don't mind being singled out.

Giggle. We can do this by process of elimination...

Aaah, caught up on my RSS feed and now see why you mentioned that.

I am sure I am not included in your list, but I have previously mentioned in Flutterby that I really liked Mr. McDuck.

"Scrooge had worked his way up the financial ladder from humble immigrant roots. Born in Glasgow, he made a living shining boots" (Wikipedia)

Actually, Ziffle, you were exactly who I was thinking of, but now you've outed yourself :-)

Oh, and in case you missed it, why Scrooge McDuck is the richest fictional character.
