Pennies Euros from heaven

Motorists thought they had hit the jackpot after a lorry carrying millions of euros in coins overturned and spilled its load.

The lorry’s rear door popped open, shedding the precious cargo in the road, near Foggie, southern Italy.

Piles of one and two euro coins were left scattered along the motorway, reports the BBC.

All hail Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson euro

A one euro coin has turned up in Spain bearing the face of cartoon couch potato Homer Simpson instead of that of the country’s king, a sweetshop owner told Reuters on Friday.

Jose Martinez was counting the cash in his till in the city of Aviles, northern Spain, when he came across the coin where Homer’s bald head, big eyes and big nose had replaced the serious features of King Juan Carlos.
