In the "Mom, there's money in my pants" department comes this item from the U.K. about a boy who discovered a prize inside his new pair of jeans.
Schoolboy Oliver Mawson- Lewis got an unexpected bonus when he put on his new pair of jeans.
The 10-year-old from Prestbury discovered a Pakistani bank note in one of the pockets. When his parents looked at the label in the item bought in the Cheltenham Matalan store, they saw the jeans were made in Pakistan.
Dad Tim said: "The note was folded in half in the jeans pocket and is quite well worn. We were so surprised to find it and didn't know whether it was a practical joke at first.
"The 20 Rupee note must have been placed there when the jeans were made in Pakistan, but the reason remains a mystery."
Ollie, a pupil at St Mary's Junior School who is keeping the note as a souvenir, said: "I was a bit disappointed when my dad looked up the exchange rate and found the note was only worth around 15p."
