The new $5 note was unveiled yesterday and it didn’t take the Internet long to have its wicked way with it.
Photoshopped pics and parodies have been popping up all over social media, giving the newly-dubbed ‘vomit-like’ note a bit of a hard time.
Some users (clearly with way too much time on their hands) tried to replace the Queen with stuff they reckon is more Australian and (even compared it to E-coli, which was totally odd).
Okay, so some of them were pretty hilarious, but we really don’t have that much to be whinging about. Because guess what? The new $5 note is still worth $5! It’s not like its gone down in value, and its still way better than carrying change. And it does also have some cool new 'tactic' features that make it easier for vision-impaired users to distinguish it from other notes.
If you still feel like whinging about the $5 note, just think of all the stuff you can still buy with $5 – chocolate, sweets, chips… a one-way train ticket. Or just go and buy 10 x McDonalds Soft Serve Cones. At 50 cents each, we reckon this is the best way to get over the new note.
