Petition demands Australia change its money to a Simpsons reference

Tapping into the sort of economic ingenuity usually found only in high-level financial think tanks or on every single page of this web site, a brave Australian citizen has proposed that his country’s currency be changed to a reference in order to revive its flagging strength.

“We need something to stimulate the Australian economy and that something is changing the name of the Australian currency to ‘Dollarydoos’, ” reads a petition currently making the rounds on, asking that the Australian dollar be transformed into a nod to the classic sixth season episode “Bart Vs. Australia.” Written by Thomas Probst—who is definitely an actual Australian citizen and not someone from our comments section running a Bart-like prank on the entire country—the petition calls on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull (who the petition misidentifies as Shadow Minister for Communications & Broadband) to enact the potentially economy-saving reform.

If the 15, 000 signatories on the petition get their way and Australians adopt the dollarydoo, it could set a precedent for The Simpsons intruding even more into what we’re forced to think of as the “real” Australian world. Knifey-spooney could become the national game, while bullfrogs would be known as chazzwazzers. People who embarrass the national government, meanwhile—possibly by writing and publicizing a petition to turn their money into a joke from a TV show that semi-viciously lampooned their nation—will be dealt with via giant boot. If nothing else, it would keep the tourism dollarydoos flowing in.
