What do you do when the bills are piling up, but you're a bit short of the government sanctioned fiat currency?

Well you could try paying your bills in a more creative manner - as a man in Australia  recently attempted. The email trail is what really makes this story.

Who knows, if enough people believed drawings of spiders to be of value, we might have the basis for a new Bretton Woods...
