money tree Amy Krouse Rosenthal attached one hundred dollar bills (that's one hundred singles) to a tree on a Chicago street, each bill stamped with a message like "Don't ask, just enjoy!" and "Some things just can't be explained."

In a sort of precious, optimistic social experiment that isn't an ABC News fluff piece hosted by a guy who might be a demon, Rosenthal (with the help of her friends Brian and Ben) kept a camera focused on The Money Tree, curious to see just how Chicagoans would react to the very literal sight of money growing on trees.

The results may surprise you and make you happy that we're not all greedy, money-hungry beasts lugging around sacks of coins and bills marked with a "$" sign. At least, that's how it works in the Windy City, it seems.
