Here is Floyd Mayweather's $40 million check

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

It's just a regular old check.

I don't know exactly how I imagined $40 million payouts went down, but it wasn't like this. I assumed there must be briefcases of bullion -- I don't even know quite what bullion is, I just like saying bullion: bullion -- stocks, bonds, record deals or some other such form of inscrutable rich-people currency. At the very least, I figured the payment had to be broken down into a series of regular checks, like when you win the lottery.

Nope. Floyd Mayweather earned $40,870,000 for that boxing match he won over the weekend, so someone from Golden Boy Promotions wrote that amount on a check and gave it to him, and I guess Mayweather will take that check to his bank and deposit it and the teller will be like "you forget to endorse this" and he'll be like "oh, damn, do you have a pen?" and she'll give him a pen and he'll endorse the check and then she'll be like "okay, cool, I will deposit that into your account, because it is a check" and maybe Mayweather will take a free lollipop for himself. Or maybe he'll cash it? Is that even possible? That seems like what he'd want to do if it were possible. Anyway, before I throw up, this is the check:

What a world.
