Barack Obama will probably tap White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew to replace outgoing Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, which means that Lew's wacky John Hancock could appear on new versions of American cash.
Lew's loopy signature first raised eyebrows during his time as Director of the Office of Management and Budget, when he added his scribble to a lot of official documents.
So is his autograph awesome or "awful?" Social media users weighed in Wednesday:
If Jack Lew is sworn in as Treasury Sec. get excited about his signature on all US paper currency. Looks like a slinky! nymag.com/daily/intellig…— Abby Huntsman (@HuntsmanAbby) January 9, 2013
Putting Jack Lew's signature on dollar bills will do more to hurt the U.S.'s fiscal standing than a $1T coin BY FAR. nym.ag/UWrww3— Kevin Roose (@kevinroose) January 9, 2013
If you're not a fan, there's still hope for neatness. New York Daily News points out that Geithner made sure his U.S. dollar signature looked nicer than this regular one.
