Release the Dollar Monkeys!

Today marks the first easing of lockdown in the United Kingdom (since the last one). While it might feel like an age since we were sealed away, it is nothing compared to that of Ogg, the inventor of the rock for doing something that was previously done in a less efficient way.

  1. “I’d like some of your mammoth meat, but I’ve nothing to trade. How about I give you a “promise to trade”?”
    “What? Um, yeah, OK.”

    “Here’s that promise you gave me, can I have some of your berries?”
    “What? I don’t *really* have enough to share. Um, how about I give you TWO promises in exchange for this one?”

    “Kill the bankers!”
    “Three promises?”
