15 June 2010. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words: “The Most Lovely Pictures I Know are the Pictures that Come on Dough…”

Filed under: business,economy,politics,Russian — 01varvara @ 00.00

Here’s the new 1,000 Rouble banknote. It supposedly has a gazillion high-tech features to foil counterfeiters… but that ain’t gonna stop ’em! There’s more than one Artful Dodger out there… trust me, the “Sad Detective” won’t be out of work!

The tagline above is from an old late ’40s movie song by Groucho and the Chairman of the Board (Frank Sinatra! You needed to ask? SHAME on you!).

Oh… 1,000 Roubles is 31.91 USD, 25.89 Euros, or 21.55 UK pounds (that’s 36.89 Australian dollars or 32.72 Canadian Loonies).
