Photo of the day: Dollars and Cents

On June 28, 2009, the New York City MTA increased the rates for subway and bus rides.

Apparently the ticket agent who dutifully wrote this sign is unaware of the one-currency-symbol-per-value rule.

Is the new fare 2.25 dollars or 2.25 cents? A smart, frugal person might have recourse to argue the latter.

    I like the hatching at the very top, and that possessive container too.
