Default News: Greece has announced plans to introduce new edible drachma notes, in order for it to simultaneously exit the eurozone and help feed hungry Greeks.

Coalition talks are still ongoing as policymakers work on plans to decide exactly what the post-euro Greek currency will taste of.

“I’m keen for the new notes to come in a range of flavours that reflect Greek cuisine,” said outgoing leader Lucas Papademos. “100 drachmas should taste like an aubergine salad, 500 will offer the saltiness of feta cheese and the 10,000 drachma note will taste silky-smooth, like taramosalata.”

“Of course you’ll need a lot more than 10,000 drachmas to buy any of this as actual food.”

Bank Of England governor Mervyn King warned that this could set a standard. “If Greece makes nice tasting money,” said King, “Then we shall have to follow suit, and make the sterling taste of Greggs pasty’s.”
