Zimbabwe’s currency…

If true, this is quite shocking, albeit humorous…:

“This is becoming a really interesting place. The only country in the world where your largest note – $500 – can’t buy you a beer, which is $650. A roll of 1-ply toilet paper costs $1000. There are approximately 72 sections on the average roll, so it is cheaper to take your $1000, change it into $10’s, wipe your backside on 72 of them and get $280 change.”
