In financial news, Canada has just unveiled a new $5 bill that has an astronaut and what appears to be a space-based death ray on the front. The whole thing looks pretty fake to me. If I was working retail and somebody handed me that I would probably bang my head on the register and ask myself what the f*** am I doing back in retail, I swore to myself ten years was enough. Please just be a dream, please just be a dream, please just be a dream.
The new polymer $5 bill shows the Canadarm2 and Dextre manipulator robots, along with an ambiguous astronaut meant to symbolize all Canadians who have contributed to its space program.
Of course, as we geek-out over how cool this new bill is, a Canadian focus group complained that it's cartoonish and out-of-step with modern Canada. Most did not recognize Dextre.
Wait -- Canada conducts focus groups to see how the public will respond to how new money looks? That's crazy. Then they ignore all the feedback? That's more like it. Sorry folks, the new bills are all going to be penis shaped and have a sort of furry texture like a peach, but hey -- if you don't want to buy milk and bread with them, that's up to you.
Thanks to lilco, who allegedly ordered one of those custom designed credit cards and got a butt printed on it. Let me see that! Wow, that's uh, that's definitely a dude's -- WAIT IS THIS MY ASS?
