Maybe it's just me, but I don't find crippling inflation to be funny.

I didn't say it was funny. Obviously their economy is collapsing.

It's just bizarre and something very hard to relate to (fortunately for us).

Inflation to that effect is extremely hard to even comprehend. I feel bad for the people of that economy.

I think this is going to have to go shut down now because the message of "huh. that's something you don't see everyday" has been established, and the only place it's likely to go from here is politics. That is amazing (that bill).
