Australia's new $50 note misspells 'responsibility' as 'responsi-fuckin-bility'

Australia’s latest A$50 note comes with a big blunder hidden in the small print – a somewhat embarrassing typo.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) spelled “responsibility” as “responsi-fuckin’-bility” on millions of the new yellow notes. Experts believe the error occurred due to someone dictating what should be on the new note, leading to the inadvertent addition of the swear word to the quote.

The RBA confirmed the typo on Thursday and said the error would be fixed in future print runs.

“Trust me, we’ll be correcting this error as soon as we bloody well can, mate” said spokesperson Steve Harris.

“Crikey, have you c*nts got any idea how stupid this makes has made us look? It’s bloody ridiculous, and we’ll be firing the flamin’ galah re-bloody-sponsible for it, defo!”

The bills were released late last year and feature Edith Cowan, the first female member of an Australian parliament. What looks like a lawn in the background of Ms Cowan’s portrait is in fact rows of text – a quotation from her first speech to parliament.

Some historians however, believe that the typo is not actually a printing error, and that Edith Cowan’s maiden speech was littered with the kind of profanity typically found in the average Sheila’s dialect, and that this one word was just missed when RBA officials went over it to edit out the swear words.
