A man walks into a restaurant and finds a piece of paper on the floor, he picks it up and gives it to the waiter who then gives it to his manager. The manager calls the police and the man gets arrested. Taken to court the judge asks to see the piece of paper, then decides for man to be executed. The executioner asks him what he did wrong? The man shows him the piece of paper. The executioner then decides to help him escape!

The question: What was on the piece of paper?

Could it be...

A counterfeit dollar bill? (Or more likely a 20, 50, or 100)

Explanation:

He gets arrested for trying to pay with a counterfeit bill. The executioner let him escape because he thought he was being bribed.

    $\begingroup$ I think the judge is having an off day. Rather than submit it to evidence, he just gives the paper back to the man after the sentencing! $\endgroup$ – kedarguru May 26 '18 at 18:06

    $\begingroup$ @CherryPlaysRoblox Yes, but unfortunately the judge didn't buy that story. $\endgroup$ – Riley May 27 '18 at 14:30
