Homer Simpson's face makes it to the Euro

Homer SimpsonI was going to make some sort of "dough" and "doh!" here, but I'm sure that will already happen elsewhere.

The owner of a candy store in Aviles, Spain found a Euro with the face of Simpsons star (star? character?) Homer Simpson on it. The coin usually has King Juan Carlos on it. The other side of the coin wasn't touched, and no other coins have shown up with the likeness of Homer, or any other TV character, for that matter.

Which got me thinking: putting TV and movie characters on coins is a great idea. The U.S. is so obsessed with pop culture, what better way to show that then to put celebrities and characters on our money? I can imagine Montgomery Burns on the $100 bill.Other TV characters I'd like to see on money:

Don Draper (Mad Men)
Matthew Brock (NewsRadio)
Alan Brady (The Dick Van Dyke Show)
Bugs Bunny
Lucille Ball
Regis Philbin
Al Swearingen (Deadwood)

Why not? Apparently most of our fellow Americans are too obsessed with voting for the next American Idol than their next Congressman, Mayor, or President.
