    Locate it in a corner, partially down the back of a sofa etc. and write an amusing message on the back. It's often more amusing to see people who think they're the only person who's spotted it, rather than being the first to go pick it up.
    Added value: go to a "your face on money" website and do one side with your victim's head?
