In a shocking turn of events, the UK government has announced that they will be paying their citizens in bubble wrap instead of traditional currency. Sources say that the idea came about when a shipment of bubble wrap was mistakenly sent to the Treasury Department instead of bank notes.

While some are excited about the new form of payment, others are left feeling confused and frustrated. "How am I supposed to buy groceries with bubble wrap?" said local citizen, John Smith. "I mean, I like to pop bubbles as much as the next guy, but this is ridiculous!"

As for the personalities involved, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been quoted as saying, "Bubble wrap is the future of currency! It's fun, it's safe, and it's environmentally friendly!" Meanwhile, opposition leader Keir Starmer has called the plan "a bunch of hot air."

Social media has also been buzzing with comments about the new payment method. One Twitter user wrote, "Looks like I'll have to start a bubble wrap collection if I want to pay my bills!" And another said, "I just hope they don't start paying us in packing peanuts next!"

Despite the confusion and mixed feelings, the government assures citizens that this new form of payment will be rolled out gradually over the next few months. "We're just trying to think outside the box," said a Treasury spokesperson. "Or in this case, inside the bubble wrap!"
