We dumped $100. Businessmen crouched to stuff wads of it in their backpacks

“I started throwing the money at three dollar increments while still yelling. At first only one guy was grabbing at it while a few hundred watched. I heard a few people saying. ‘What’s that guy doing?’ ‘That’s not real money!’ and then suddenly some girl starts screaming. ‘Oh my god this is real money.’ Then it was on. About fifty people rushed toward me grabbing for the cash. They followed me like mice to a flute as I threw the money, scurrying behind me, diving for the crumbs. Chaos ensued for the next few minutes.”
