At the Toronto Fan Expo today, the Royal Canadian Mint revealed the design for some new coins today, sending many Canadians into an uproar over the Jim Lee redesign of their beloved monarch, the Queen of England. Wait, what? Why do Canadians have the Queen of England on their money? Nevermind, I don't care. In any case, here's the new $100 coin, showing off Queen Elizabeth's new look:
"That's not the Queen Elizabeth I grew up with!" complained lifelong British monarchy fan Wright Bland. "The Queen of England is supposed to stand for truth, justice, and the Canadian way, not high collars, unnecessary armor lines, and an embarassingly tiny crotch-bulge! I'm never using Canadian money ever again!" Bland reportedly stuck to his guns for a record 45 minutes before extreme hunger pangs forced him to give up and purchase a Crunchie bar from a local vending machine.
Despite fan outcry, the RCM is refusing to back down, pointing out that this is actually a commemorative coin featuring Superman, not regular money which still features the Queen, and that anyway there are three other coins that show Superman in his old costume. At press time, protestors were undeterred, and one notable Canadian money fan site, TheOothosers.com, was reportedly planning to set up a single use website called Has The Royal Canadian Mint Done Something Stupid Today to track future publicity clusterfucks from the beleaguered institution.
