The $1 and the $20

A well-worn one-dollar bill and a similarly distressed twenty-dollar bill arrived at a Federal Reserve Bank to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burned, they struck up a conversation. The twenty-dollar bill reminisced about its travels all over the country.?
“I’ve had a pretty good life,” the twenty proclaimed. “Why I’ve been to Las Vegasand Atlantic City , the finest restaurants in New York, performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean. “?
“Wow!” said the one-dollar bill. ”You’ve really had an exciting life!”?
“So tell me,” says the twenty, “where have you been throughout your lifetime?” ?
The one dollar bill replies, “Oh, I’ve been to the MethodistChurch, the BaptistChurch , the LutheranChurch.”?
The twenty-dollar bill interrupts, “What’s a church?”?
