Don't Wipe Your Bum with Money (It'll Clog the Pipes!)

This sign shows that the African country of Zimbabwe has a problem. Its money has become almost worthless! Because of inflation, a dollar bill in Zimbabwe (called a "Zim dollar") is worth less than the same amount of toilet paper.

In other words, you'd need a pile of Zim dollars BIGGER than a toilet paper roll to BUY a toilet paper roll! So some people just skip the toilet paper and just wipe their bum with money. So that means someone has probably yelled something like this before:

"Don't let me catch you wiping your bum with Zim dollars again!"
Sign from here.
