    Titles read: "MONEY TO BURN!"

    United States of America.

    Various shots of men at an maceration depot unloading old paper money from an armoured trailer and shoving it into a hole where it is turned into pulp. One asks the other how long he has been throwing money away. He says about 12 years, and he is broke, as usual. Massive rollers turn and the pulp falls out into a pile.

    A man shovels more dollars into a furnace. He says to two other men what a shame it is "to burn up all this money during this hard time". One of them replies "When you've got it in your pocket, it burns a hole in it!"
