As if the "Delhi belly" wasn't bad enough it seems now that even Indian money is not particularly digestable!
Termites residing in an Indian bank in Uttar Pradesh decided to eat Rupee bank notes instead of their usual diet of carcases of dead slum dogs and cats (plenty of them in India!).
The bank personnel only noticed that the termites had eaten the bank notes after discovering many rolling over the ground holding their bellies and chunks of the chewed notes were hanging outside their mouths after being spat out.
Rupee notes are not advisable to eat because of the bacteria which tends to stick to the notes after being passed around by millions of "Untouchables"?
The bank manger obviously blamed bank personnel for not employing "bug terminators" and ridding the bank of the termites, but they were all too busy de-bugging parliament buildings, plenty of corrupt cockroaches there too.
The bank is now waiting for nature to take its course and the bank-notes? They hope that the termites will all die then they can print some new ones, disinfect the bank vaults and remove all traces of verminous behaviour!
