Trivia

In 2015, Thomas Probst put out an online petition to get Australia to rename its currency the "dollarydoo" in order to stimulate Australia's economy. It accrued nearly 47,000 E-signatures towards the goal of 75,000 in its first week. See more »

Goofs

When Homer is looking over the phone bill listing the Southern Hemisphere locations Bart called, Burkina Faso is listed; since Burkina Faso is completely within the Northern Hemisphere, it would have done Bart no good to call there. See more »
