Is it really though?

I'll have to ask my friends from Austria what they think about it.

Or, if they have to be alive, Kylie Minogue.

They could have a whole series where he jams his thumb up the assholes of a huge range of animals!

Strange, they spelled Bon Scott wrong on that petition.

As long as one Liam Hemsworth is worth literally half of one Chris Hemsworth.

OK, I agree no royalty. But I really don't think a gold record (or 12) qualifies you to be on money either.

Doesn't Australia have actual history?

I mean I realize it was all thieves, buggers, and ne'er-do-wells to begin with, but didn't some of then do something good?

A man who spent his life winding up dangerous animals and then died because of it.

It certainly feels Australian
 
2022-10-02 10:55:07 AM  
Eh. I think I'd prefer Ned Kelly on there imo

Though I like the idea of someone other than the sovereign on the $5 note. Chuckles is already going to appear on one side of every new coin minted

They're pretty common around here, think they are a low value denomination.

Part of their "animal taunters" series.
 
2022-10-02 11:12:44 AM  
So they are trading one fool for another??
 
2022-10-02 11:13:34 AM  
Yes. Money and ships should NEVER feature a live person. They have time to turn into a Fuk-up. Thiere is plenty of dead people to honor that deserve it and won' cause issues later.

/ Would you think Mel Gibson should be on money?

Mel Gibson would be great on toilet paper.

Paul Hogan did it first...

That's LORD Humongous - you don't want to get the title wrong, he gets all pissy

Only if the image also features a stingray with its tail through his chest.
 
2022-10-02 11:28:19 AM  
Man. The Sunday crowd is bitter af.

I was thinking about a different Irwin chest to put on the currency.
 
2022-10-02 11:54:47 AM  
How about Australian money featuring the stingray?
 
2022-10-02 11:56:26 AM  
didn't he basically just harass animals?

i wasnt paying any attention
 
2022-10-02 12:02:59 PM  
I think an Olympic skier medalist would be better choice.
 
2022-10-02 12:08:08 PM  
jeez it's been awhile since I've been here, need to stay off Twitter because I immediately went to "like" this story when I read the actual articles headline. But yeah, seems like a prettt good idea

Those are the ones you use at the Laundromat.  That's why they're called washers.
 
2022-10-02 1:00:15 PM  
How about one with whoever is on the front upside down?  

Actually, I think the idea of having deceased celebrities or cultural references, so long as they aren't partisan, is a nice idea.

/She's still alive, and from New Zealand, not Australia, but it would be pretty funny for a currency to say 'Lawless' on front.  Trying to decide if Mad Max would help or hurt tourism...

It's a great idea to put ANYTHING other than some simpering idiot royal on your money. The FARK squirrel would be better. It has more gravitas.

Denominations could get raunchier the higher they go, eventually ending with him poking a Croc in the cooch with a Turkey baster full of croc baby batter.
Collect the series.

Canada should do the same. I recommend Leslie Neilson

He was one of the most prominent voices for conservation of wildlife.  Particularly the species many people may view as undesirable.  See below for a great interview with someone who was there when he died.  Also Destin's entire channel is great.

Why feel compelled to put an image of any member of that useless family of German twats on something of any inherent value or utility?

It's like engraving the pope's face on a hammer. Sure, you could do it....but why?

Honestly, if I'm torturing heretics, I'd really appreciate a Pope faced hammer when I'm breaking fingers.
