Creasing up: Banking on a funny photo with the 'moneyfacing' craze sweeping the web

Following hot on the heels of lining up vintage album sleeves with people's faces is the latest internet craze - 'moneyfacing'.

Photographs of folded-over banknotes placed in front of a person's half-visible face are littering the web.

A truly international pastime, the notes being used come from as far afield as Singapore and the US.

Closer to home, many Britons are having fun with our own banknotes. The Queen is proving to be the most popular, followed by Sir Edward Elgar and Sir John Houblon.
