Embarassing! Reserve Bank Accidently Puts Non-Australian On New $5 Note

In an embarrassing blunder, the RBA today released a new Australian $5 note featuring a woman who has never actually lived here.

The RBA blamed the error on a junior intern who they claimed was messing around with the designs in Photoshop. “We accidently sent the wrong mock-up to print. It was a regrettable error. The note was, of course, supposed to feature a prominent Australian”.

The note, which also features native Australian birds and Nandos grilled corn on the cob, will enter circulation soon.
