High street pawnbrokers Cash Converters today revealed they were behind the $700 billion dollar bail out of the US banks.

Several US national monuments are being put up for collateral including the Lincoln Memorial, the Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore.

"Obviously they (the US) will not be receiving full market value for their monuments as we have to make a reasonable profit to make the transaction worthwhile." said a Cash Converters spokesperson.

The US government are busy compiling a list of monuments they can do without for a while.

"We hope to be able to buy back the monuments within the time limit or else Cash Converters will put them on general sale." said a US treasury spokesperson.
