spondulicks also spondulix (spon-DOO-liks) noun
[Of unknown origin.]
It could only be a sign of money's popularity that there are numerous slang terms to describe it. Among others, there are moola, buck, greenback (from the color of the US currency), simoleon, dead presidents (from the pictures of US presidents on currency notes), bean, and dough (referring to the buying of food). Counterfeit money could then very well be sourdough.

What's done to children, they will do to society. -Karl A. Menninger, psychiatrist (1893-1990)
