Australians are petitioning to get their currency renamed to the "dollarydoo" in an attempt to boost demand for the currency

It amuses me that there are serious macroeconomic justifications for renaming a national currency after an off-hand joke from the Simpsons.

I also want to live in a world where people have this conversation with a straight face:

"How much for that didgeridoo?"
"That'll be 100 dollarydoos"
"Don't mind if I doooo"
