I was going to save up my pocket change to buy Indian bread, but then I realized that would be a lot of naan cents.

I proposed that the U.S. Treasury use Indian bread to divide the dollar rather than coins but they said they’ve had it with my naan cents.

Indian cuisine places should make little coin size naan bread and put it on the menu as Naan Cents.
