Last week I pointed out the absurd practicalities of buying a load of bread with Zimbabwean money. Now, it seems, this problem has been (temporarily) addressed by the issuing of a new Z$100 billion note:

As you can see, to make sure nobody mistakes this for real money that’s actually worth anything, they’ve cleverly printed ‘Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe’ on this specimen.

I like the fact that they've printed specimen on it, as if it could possibly be worth the effort of forging Zimbabwean paper money.
