A Little Egyptian Weight

Here's some of that Egyptian money. The red bills are, as you can read, one pound notes, and at this point in history, five of them equal a U.S. dollar. The green one is fifty piastres, two of which make a pound. Like a fifty-cent piece, only a bill. Weird. The two-tone coins are one pound coins, and the other three are various piastre denominations.

There. Now you have all the inside intel needed to stage a hostile financial takeover of Egypt. I had standing orders from my friend Michele (who I found the first KFC with way back when) to send her some of this money as soon as I got back... I think she may have started that takeover already. Move fast.
