Australians Want Steve Irwin on Their Money

Because, duh.

A petition circulating in Australia to get the late conservationist and TV personality Steve Irwin put on their money has almost 20,000 signatures.

Considering there’s only 15 people in Australia, this is very impressive. I’m sure he’ll be on their Outback Steakhouse coupons by tomorrow. Because that’s what Australian money is. From BBC:

The petition calls on citizens to pay their respects to the “all time greatest Australian bloke”.

But it remains unclear whether the petition will have any impact.

Boooo. Let it have some impact. Man took a fucking stingray to the chest. He died for your sins, Australia.

“We started this petition because the newer generation barely knows who is representing our currency,” Kyle Ryan, one of the founders of the petition told the BBC. “We believed that having a childhood icon and conservationist like Steve would be a great idea for his 10th anniversary.”

The mint has told all these people to submit a formal proposal. And I hope they do.

RIP Crocodile Hunter.
