England Discovers New Use For American Dollars

London, England - The British have found a new and innovative use for the American dollar. With an approximate 0.47 exchange rate for the American dollar to the British pound sterling, American dollars have surged in popularity and are in great demand in England for sealing the cracks in the walls of windy old castles.

Economists are also predicting that in 2008, when the reign of George the 43rd is finally over, the value of American currency will have plummeted to the point where it will be economically feasible to use stacks of American greenbacks as building blocks for ecologically designed compost bins.

Fortunately, people in England are quite understanding and kind to current American travelers. As one shopkeeper consoled this reporter, "There, there - we used to be a world leader once also and being a second-rate nation takes some getting used to. Give it a bit of time and pretty soon you'll practically forget you ever were a superpower."

It used to be that 1 euro pretty much equalled 1 dollar. Now the dollar is worth less than 70 cents in EU. This has only happened in the last few years - any body want to guess why?
