Loopy signature could appear on US currency if Jack Lew is appointed as Treasury Secretary
By now, you have probably seen the loopy scribble that Jack Lew calls a signature. His series of squiggles sent the internet into a frenzy this week, as folks tried to comprehend the fact that it might end up on the dollar bill if Lew is confirmed as Treasury Secretary.
BuzzFeed’s Jessica Testa compiled a list of 14 things that look like Lew’s signature
which included a picture of the cupcake along with slinkies, curly fries, swirly straws and even a spiral mustache.
All the hubbub over Lew’s signature caused President Obama to address it when he announced Lew’s nomination. “I never noticed Jack’s signature,” said the President, “and when this was highlighted yesterday in the press I considered recinding my offer to appoint him. Jack assures me that he will work to make at least one letter legible in order not to debase our currency.”
