Brilliant protest sign

This is great: a protest sign made of worthless currency.

And we think the economy here is bad because it’s hard to get financing for the spare 56″ plasma screen TV. Zimbabwe has been dealing with inflation so bad, even its $100 trillion dollar note is worthless (and at one point it ran out of money to pay for the license to… print more money. It also then ran out of paper. Comedy gold!).

That’s some serious inflation. Suck on it, Weimar Germany! You bunch of wimps. (Interestingly, the same firm that supplied currency-quality paper stock to Zimbabwe until mid-2008 also supplied the Weimar government.)
