GENEVA, Switzerland (PNN) - June 20, 2020 - Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our weekend roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
At a parade in Switzerland, fake money was thrown around for children to collect.
The obviously fake cash is called “spirit money”, featuring Chinese symbols. It is meant as an offering to the dead so they can prosper in the afterlife.
An eight-year-old Swiss boy later asked a shop clerk if he could use the play money to buy candy. To be clear, the child did not try to trick the shopkeeper or pass off the money as real.
A normal person would laugh, and politely explain that only central banks are allowed to use fake money.
Instead, this shopkeeper opted to call the terrorist pig thug cops.
A reasonable cop could have stopped it all there.
Instead, the boy and his ten-year-old brother were taken to the terrorist pig thug cop station. Terrorist pig thug cops took their mugshots but did not charge them with a crime.
Terrorist pig thug cops did, however, search the family’s home, where terrorist pig thug cops found some other play money.
These cops confiscated Monopoly money, as if they were busting a counterfeiting operation.
