Readers who enjoy classic American films will immediately recognize the headline of our article as a line from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), starring Humphrey Bogart. A similar remark was used in Blazing Saddles, the 1974 Mel Brooks comedy.

When we hear the word “badge,” what usually comes to mind is a police officer, firefighter or even a merit badge awarded to Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts to signify certain accomplishments. (Boy Scouts of America is rebranding to Scouting America in 2025.)
