Russian Prime Minister Dumie Putininchargev has revealed plans for a single world currency. Russia wish to move away from having everything backed by the dollar. Instead the potato will now be the shared economy of the world.

This is excellent news for Ireland, which is now the richest country on the planet. Potato magnet Declan O'Money said "I've got several fields full of this cash crop. I'm going to retire and buy Bushmills."

There had been some debate as to whether the potato would be chosen or if another vegetable would be selected. The beetroot was an early favourite, but it peaked too soon. The pumpkin was thought to be too American. Thus the humble potato is now the world's currency.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
