'Residents in Quebec's Gaspé region are cutting Canadian bills in half to create a new local currency they call the "demi."
No one really knows who started the practice, but $5, $10 and $20 bills, sliced down the middle, have been showing up since the spring.
Residents and some local merchants have been using them, accepting their value as half of the original bill.'
i dont understand why they are doing it..
why not just pay half with regular money.. ?
Just Plain Nuts.
