The International Bank Note Society select Note of the Year.

Have you ever heard of the International Bank Not Socierty? Neither had we, nor did we know that they selected a bank note of the year. Do we agree? Do you agree? And what other obscure Socieities should there be.

So you missed the International Bank Note Society’s Bank Note of the Year? Well so did we, and did you know that the New Zealand $5 note was the winner? You could read the official article from the IBNS here  or you could endure our attempt at humour of the below.

2015 BANK NOTE OF THE YEAR

As mentioned above the New Zealand $5 dollar note did win the 2015 bank note of they year, and it did beat a stunning field from Russia, Kazakhstan, Sweden and Scotland.

We can’t believe the IBNS would not allow the public to vote, so we’re giving our chance for all our many Gurgler reader to decide which of the finalists should have won. Leave a comment in our comment section at the end.

And here’s the Winners and Nominations to make your choice – with thanks to the IBNS for the images.

GURGLER PROPOSAL FOR OBSCURE SOCIETIES

Following on some actual obscure societies, we thought we’d attempt to come up with our own. Kept it to three as they weren’t funny, and any more would be less so.

FELLOWSHIP OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF TUBE SURFING
People who attempt to stand on a train without touching anything now have a home to go to and discuss the record efforts. One has to qualify for membership by Tube Surfing the entire Victoria line with evidence uploaded to the YouTube account of the FISTS. Meeting held every third Thursday at Goodge Street.

SOCIETY of NOKIA 3210 OWNERS
To qualify one must be able to complete the Snake Game and still currently use a Nokia 3210. Meetings are arranged by text every 2nd Monday evening.

SOCIETY OF ANTI CHANNEL 9 SPORT ENTHUSIASTS
To qualify one has to have a Fox Sports subscription, and have watched two or fewer games of NRL this season on Channel 9. One must also have a genuine and almost unhealthy dislike of Michael Slater. Meetings are held in Sydney every Sunday.

 

 

About Kaaps Loche 216 Articles
Kaaps doesn’t sleep much, and has a 60inch full HD TV and Foxtel, therefore watches more television than most. is also very strange and has a slightly different outlook on life, so comes up with a lot of rubbish that he thinks is funny and usually isn’t. Out of sympathy, we publish his stuff from time to time. So prepare your sympathy laughs and put that lovely drawing on the fridge for Kaaps.
