On Monday a Reddit user uploaded a photo of an empanada with a napkin substituted for a two-bolívar note.
This cash-for-napkins substitution is the result of the country's spiraling inflation rates, which are driving up prices and making currency effectively useless.
In a cafe in Barinas, Venezuela, two-bolívar notes are being used as napkins because it is cheaper. Although you may not believe it!
People have already been sharing photos of the wildly varying price of paper towels.
Some posts show packs of napkins costing more than daily minimum wage.
Twitter reaction has been mixed: Some users are disgusted by the idea of using a public banknote on your food.
Praying for the poor soul who ate a pie wrapped in a note. Good luck with that bacteria in your stomach.
I prefer to eat a pie with cutlery than use a two-bolívar note as napkin, disgusting.
If you give me a pie with a napkin for a note, I'll give you a slap with that same pie - even better if it's hot.
Others are lamenting the unfortunate financial situation of their country.
In my country turns out cheaper to grab a pie with a two-bolívar banknote than with a napkin, that's the sad reality... And yet it still exists.
You know a country is in hyperinflation when the highest-value banknote can only buy a pie.
