My share of the stimulus package

Now I can pretend to be on Wall Street, seizing untold riches with my filthy, Ponzi-scheme stained paws!

…or does this hyperinflationary currency from Zimbabwe’s crumbling economy portend the future of our own currency?

By the way… uh… is it just me, or is the typeface on the 10 trillion dollar banknote the same as the one used for Rock Band?

They really know how to party in Zimbabwe.

  1. hahaha, observant and obscure. nice.

  2. Well, you could try posting it on ebay. Someone might bite. *shrugs*

  3. Turns out that eBay is where I bought these. :) It is a great marketplace for converting crumbling economies into novelties for yuppie scum like me. :)

    BTW there is a 100 trillion dollar note now!

  4. I dunno if you saw the movie Without A Paddle, but… the guy who robbed an airplane and jumped out aned was never found by the FBI [SPOILERS AHEAD] burned the money he stole to stay warm, before freezing to death. It makes me wonder – if you really needed to keep warm, could you not trade 1 american dollar for 1 trillion 1$ZIM, and then have a nice fire going for awhile!

  5. Clint: Great photos, especially the last one (“NO ZIM DOLLARS!”)

    It does seem like a cheap pile of Zim dollars would keep a fire going for a long time. And wouldn’t printing that many banknotes cost more than the bills themselves???

  6. Yea… Actually, they don’t print ZIM$1 anyway, so .. it’s just a fun concept to consider. :)

  7. Bahahahahaha— love the font observation! :)
