There is a government office that deals with mutilated cash, so they will get the money back.

Ben and Jackee Belnap, of Utah, are working to replace more than $1 000 in cash that their 2-year-old son sent through the shredder.

The couple said they laughed it off and Leo is no longer allowed to help mom shred things.

Ben and Jackee Belnap were saving the cash to reimburse Ben's parents for University of Utah season football tickets. They had the $1,060 ready in an envelope but were left searching the home when it disappeared over the weekend. His parents believe he used his near-professional level shredding skills on the envelope containing their hard-earned cash when they weren't paying close enough attention.

The couple said Leo is now banned from going near the shredder.

She said the boy has shown previous interest in the shredder.

Recalling the moment Jackee opened up the shredder, Ben, of Bountiful, Ut., told KSL-TV: 'I'm digging through the trash and she hollers and says, "I found it".

In shock, Jackee said the two "shuffled" through the shreds of paper for a few minutes in silence.

"As devastated and as sick as we were, this was one of those moments where you just have to laugh", Ms Belnap told United States television station KRON4. The fiercely anti-capitalist 2-year-old took it upon himself to show his parents that he's all out of fucks to give with regards to their finances.

It turns out the couple might not be out all that money.

The couple said they might yet be able to retrieve their money with help from the U.S. Department of Treasury, but it won't be available in time for football tickets.
