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.
Others are lamenting the unfortunate financial situation of their country.
You know a country is in hyperinflation when the highest-value banknote can only buy a pie.
