Coupon Hyperinflation

Someone was handing out coupons for a new restaurant. It said “$5 sandwich”.

However, someone had scribbled “.50″ on the coupon, changing the price to $5.50.

That was pretty funny. It’s a sign of hyperinflation. The price of the food increased from $5 to $5.50, between when they printed the coupons and started handing them out.
