The Double Zero 100 Peso Note
- Zip / City:
I once asked Slats Johnson, “Have you got change for a hundred, Slats?”
To which he answered, “Kid, a hundred IS change to me.”
In these days in which one hundred pesos seems like a lot less money than it used to be …it also seems like really bad timing to release a “00” note as the biggest in Argentina.
But that is exactly what has happened. I haven´t seen one personally but you can´t get much more tragi-comic than the latest issue from the central bank.
It seems that there is such a need for hundies on the street that the latest defective issue of Argentine currency printed in Brazil has been approved for circulation.
No joke. Even though I photoshopped the above illustration …it is really accurate.
