Quick! There's a market developing for diamond-encrusted gold knuckle-dusters in the shape of Euros

More bad news for the US economy: the dollar is now so weak, Jay Z is waving Euros in his new video:

He is seen cruising the streets of New York in Bentleys and Rolls Royces (now owned by Germany's Volkswagen and BMW) with a briefcase of 500 euro notes.

Apparently, Russian plutocrats are now touring the US swapping back the jeans they'd got when Americans used them as currency behind the Communist-era Iron Curtain.
