I'm looking for examples or a list of movie scenes (or TV, I suppose) which feature the presentation of futuristic money as a punchline, especially re: who is pictured on the bills. Think the $10,000,000 bill in Idiocracy, or Hillary Clinton on the $10,000 bill in Pluto Nash. Bonus points for examples with links to pics. Thanks!

Richard Nixon's face is also on the $1000 bill in Futurama currency, and Al Gore graces the $500.
