As my parents have spent some time in India, I am sure they will appreciate this one:

In India, corruption in the form of bribery is so common (even though it is illegal), that an anti-corruption body, 5th Pillar, has come up with the novel concept of a 0 Rupee note, where the front looks like this:

And the back looks like this:

You can download the Rupee template in all the major Indian languages from their website, making it easily accessible around the country.

I am a little unconvinced about whether it is as effective in making offenders repent and even repay the money already accepted, as the site claims to have happened (anecdotal evidence only) . But I like the concept.

Hat tip: BoingBoing.
