Waste Paper

7 03 2008

I pulled open my lower left desk drawer and wondered where to pack the next bricks of nearly worthless Zimbabwe dollars. Trouble was there was no space; it had all been taken by much more worthless (excuse the split infinitives) dollars. No, seriously, these were not even worth my time at the bank, they would not even count them and charge me for the privilege too! Most were even expired (yes, expired). I should explain that for the past 3 years or so we have been using “bearer cheques” which are essentially notes with expiry dates on them. They are not normally use in an open currency system but hell, we Zimbos are nothing if not ingenious. Then it came to me; there is a huge opportunity here in very high quality waste paper. Surely there must be thousands of people out there in the same situation? There has to be tonnes of the stuff around! Anyone out there know what can be done with very high quality wast paper – it even has the UV security flecks in it!

Sell the worthless money to the Americans – there has to be at least one American stupid enough to buy 50 billion or something.

Good luck with the elections?
