From CNN.com: Zimbabwe introduces $100 billion banknotes

Zimbabwe’s troubled central bank introduced $100 billion banknotes Saturday in a desperate bid to ease the recurrent cash shortages plaguing the inflation-ravaged economy.

As high as they are, though, the bills still aren’t enough to buy a loaf of bread. They can buy only four oranges.

The new note is equal to just one U.S. dollar.

That’s some messed up currency.
