A Russian hundred ruble note is the sexiest money in the world. At least, this is what Aleksey Svistunov, the editor-in-chief of the Russian Book of Records, believes. "Just take a hundred ruble note in your hands and look at it very attentively. The image of Apollo on the portico of the Bolshoi Theatre is the object to pay your attention to. When designers worked on the lithograph, they had to photograph the theatre. The picture was taken during the repairs of the sculpture group - Apollo and the quadriga of horses. During repairing works, Apollo was deprived of the fig leaf that covered his male pride. That is why I may say that the Russian 100-ruble note is the only money in the world, which depicts a penis," Aleksey Svistunov said.
