We all know Dirty Fed money is dirty but this might be pushing it.

The Zimbabwe Guardian:

Many people in Zimbabwe have resorted to washing U.S. bank notes as they have become too dirty and smelly to handle.

The country is in desperate need of new bank notes and these are likely to be seen on the streets as Zimbabwe has no official currency use deal with the U.S. This means that all notes that circulate in the country emanate from Bueaux de Change, local banks or from unofficial sources.

U.S. bank notes often change hands until they fall apart.

Some have become almost too smelly to handle, so some people and businesses put their U.S. dollar bills, especially low denomination ones, through the spin cycle and hanging them up to dry with clothes pins alongside sheets and items of clothing.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Perhaps that's because ZB has devalued them to the point they make really good toilet paper.

I prefer using $10 bills. There's something really satisfying about wiping my ass on that rat bastard Alexander Hamilton.
