Funny money

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I did a day trip to Salt Spring Island off southern Vancouver Island's east coast. We stopped into the small town of Ganges for lunch as well as an ice cream cone at Harlans Chocolates and Gelato | The Sweetest Place on Salt Spring! I can personally vouch for the thick and tasty gelato.

They sell these hilarious homemade postcards such as this one:

Salt Spring also had it's own currency called Salt Spring Dollars. They feature artwork by local artists including the well-known Robert Bateman and others. Contrary to what I believed, every government, community, organization, and individual has the right to produce their own money.
