I have no idea why the European Union does not simply introduce candy wrappers as bank notes. The new 10 Euro and 20 Euro bills sure has hell come close in the design department. Nausea-inducing colors and an overall design reminiscent of a boy allowed to play with a bunch of magic markers.

I remember when the Euro was introduced way back when. The latest security features, they said. A few weeks later, people were photocopying them, photoshopping them and whatnot. The market was flooded with forged 10s, 20s and 50s.

Now, all of the old money will be trashed to be replaced with colored paper.
Good job.
