Inefficient Units of Currency

By Joseph Streckert, from the Canadian literary magazine McSweeney's:
  • Children
  • Millstones
  • Imaginary euros*
  • Copies of Now That's What I Call Music! Vol. 7**
  • Pieces of long-grain rice that are not actually very long
  • Unicorn heads
  • Canadian dollars

*Arguably, the ECU (which worked perfectly well as a currency) was imaginary.

**Vol. 7 is I suspect now a collector's item. The current volume is 73.
