A petition has been launch to help stimulate the Australian economy by changing the name of the currency to “Dollarydoos”.
The campaign which has been started on the Change.com website – is directed towards the countries Shadow Minister for Communications & Broadband Malcolm Turnbull MP and has saw it’s support jump from 8,000 to nearly 35,000 signatures in less that 24 hours.
According to the petition – the change to Dollarydoos “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”.
Fans of the Simpsons will recognise the term from the 1995 Simpsons episode called “Bart vs. Australia,” in which the unnamed father of a boy called Tobias, is tricked into a six-hour collect call with Bart Simpson that cost him “900 Dollarydoos.”
