Are You Ready To Quid?

Give Them Credit For This Cash

Scientists have come up with a new currency designed to for use by inter-planetary travellers. It is called the Quasi Universal Intergalactic Denomination, or Quid. It is designed to withstand the stresses of space travel and has no sharp edges or chemicals that could hurt space tourists. It was designed for the foreign exchange company Travelex by scientists from the National Space Centre and the University of Leicester. The Quid ``coins'' have moulded edges so they will not damage anything if they accidentally float free in zero gravity.

FOOTNOTE: Out of this world, but it’s gaining currency.

Are they sending the subtle message that they will not accept my plastic? Back to the future or in the wrong movie?
I'm rattled.
