image for Monopoly Money to become legal tender in Yorkshire
Money from the Peoples Republic of Yorkshire

London - People in Yorkshire, noted for being mean and stingy, today are waking up to the fact that Sterling has been replaced with Monopoly Money as legal tender.

Monopoly money, produced by Mr Jerimiah Brown, brother of the chancellor of the exchequor, Gordon Brown and now the new richest man in the history of the world - last night helped to distribute the new money into bank machines across Yorkshire.

Stingy ass Yorkshire folk will be given a week to exchange the money that they have hidden under their beds, behind wardrobes and under their floor boards for this new tender.

It is though that this will give a GBP300trillion lift to the economy.

Make Shanghaied's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
