UN Proposes Crap Currency

NEW YORK CITY, NY - The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has proposed scrapping all currencies and replacing them with bills made of human waste. Said Lars Oafminster, UNCTAD spokesperson, "This is a renewable resource that would have all the value of the current U.S. dollar." And while economists agree on the comparative worth, they cite other issues not addressed in the UNCTAD report. "Dollars fold easily," said Merriman Vasely, economist at the University of Chicago, "but can we say the same for these new bills?" France and several other G20 nations have expressed reservations which Vasely feels are well-founded. "Countries wonder if the new bills will be good 'restaurant' money. How will cabbies react receiving a tip? Hopefully, these questions will be addressed. On the upside, you'd never run out of cash." (Photo: un.org)
