No More Bush Bux

That'll be in euros, please. Bloomberg (11.05.07):
"Gisele B√ľndchen wants to remain the world's richest model and is insisting that she be paid in almost any currency but the U.S. dollar.

Like billionaire investors Warren Buffett and Bill Gross, the Brazilian supermodel, who Forbes magazine says earns more than anyone in her industry, is at the top of a growing list of rich people who have concluded that the currency can only depreciate because Americans led by President George W. Bush are living beyond their means."

Supermodel B√ľndchen Joins Hedge Funds Dumping Dollars

"'Contracts starting now are more attractive in euros because we don't know what will happen to the dollar', Patricia Bundchen, the model's twin sister and manager in Brazil, said in a telephone interview in September from Sao Paulo."

Oh my. A twin sister.

How would the average joe (although, not average looking ;-) switch his moneys to the euros?

Well outside of marrying Patricia or her sister, maybe opening up a European bank account?

Don't really know though.
