Most countries’ currency is distinct to their land. Think the British pound, the Mexican peso, the Japanese yen.
Do you know what Australia’s currency is called? The dollar. We should fucking sue. But not only does it not differentiate their country from ours, it lacks zip, pizzazz. It’s fucking boring.
It ain’t Australia. A country of wombats and kangaroos picks the dollar? Come on.
That could change though, as a movement is a foot. A change.org petition has over 10,000 signatures supporting a switch.
They want to make the currency the dollarydoo.
That, you may recall, is from this little Simpsons bit.
As dumb as that may sound, there’s also sound economic reasoning. Sort of.
Due to global commodity prices plummeting, the Australian economy is struggling. That’s why we need something to stimulate the Australian economy and that something is changing the name of the Australian currency to ‘Dollarydoos’. This will make millions of people around the world want to get their hands on some Australian currency due to the real life Simpsons reference, driving up the value of the Australian currency.
Works for me. The only question is how to let the prime minister know.
