Here is a photograph of a Zimbabwean bank cheque somebody sent to me.
This person bought a farm vehicle for "One Quintrillion, Seventy Two Trillion Four Hundred and Eighteen Billion and Three Million" Zimbabwe dollars.
Or in numbers
Zim $ 1,072,418,003,000,000.00
Or for you scientists out there
Zim $ 1.072418 x 10E30
Just goes to show that everybody in Zimbabwe is suddenly a mathematician to keep up with their inflation rate.
Inflation is rising every 9 hours or so!

Mandela is enjoying a hearty breakfast - bacon, eggs, coffee, croissants, toast, butter, jam, etc. when Bush, chewing gum, sits next to him and starts a conversation:
Bush: "You South Africans eat the whole bread?"
Mandela: "Of course."
Bush (blowing bubble with his gum): "We don't. In the States, we only eat what's inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle, rebake them into croissants and sell them to South Africa."
Mandela: "Oh Really?"
Bush: "Do you eat jam with the bread?"
Mandela: "Of course."
Bush (chuckling and crackling his gum between his teeth): "We don't. In the States we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, put all the peels, seeds and left overs into containers, recycle them into jam and sell it to South Africa ."
Mandela: "Do you have sex in America?"
Bush: "Of course we do."
Mandela: "And what do you do with the condoms?"
Bush: "Throw them away of course."
Mandela: "We don't. We pack them into containers, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum and sell it to America."
