That’s what you get back from the bank with negative interest rates as explained in this link.

Interesting! I've never heard of these, and therefore it is safe to say, I've never seen one, either  ;D

I cannot tolerate more than about 30 seconds of information thin video.  It’s explained in the video if you watch long enough.

What is a Zero Euro?

The Zero Euro is a souvenir banknote with authorized printing by the European Central Bank (ECB) and is on queue to be a popular in 2018 banknote collector markets. It’s origins stem from France in 2015 after Richard Faille, creator of popular French currency souvenirs, decided to create euros that promote tourism. The banknotes are printed at a private fiduciary facility and they share many of the same characteristics of a real Euro except that they are marked as “0”, hence the name, and are tested to ensure they cannot enter circulation as legitimate financial currency. The front of all zero euros is the same and it includes a white zero followed by the Euro sign to denominate no financial value. Then (from left to right) Brandenburg Gate, Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum, Sagrada Familia, Manneken Pis and the Mona Lisa.

Did you eat a Toblerone? The first thing I did when I got US citizenship was stop at McDonalds and got a 1/4 lb'r with cheese and supersize fries!

This is kinda similar--I took a college sponsored trip to Europe and a bunch of us all went to McD's as soon as we were settled in after the flight just to see if it was the same as in the States.  It was.

Mmmm - that sounds good. 

Unfortunately, the restaurant across the street serves less-than-good cordon blue. Otherwise it would be soooo convenient. Too convenient, actually.
