Fed to Purchase Zimbabwe Money

HARARE, ZIMBABWE - Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa announced that the United Stated Federal Reserve has offered to buy large denomination Zimbabwean currency. "We are delighted to sell our useless million and billion dollar notes." Chinamasa recently introduced a 100 trillion banknote, attempting to pace raising prices, which double every 1.3 days. "They [U.S.] will now have a fun currency," said Chinmasa, referring to the Fed's decision to purchase U.S. debt by printing trillions of dollars. "As I understand, they want to write 'U.S. MONEY' on our old bills and place them in circulation. This I admire. But they must pay us in Whoppers and iPods. We are not fools."
