They are actually legal tender. This is part of the New Zealand tourism office's "100 percent Middle Earth" campaign.

You know you have a bad cover when it looks like it would be more at home in the '70s pr0n section.

Monty Python is Making a Sci-Fi Comedy

The surviving members of Monty Python, along with Robin Williams, have a new project in the works: a sci-fi comedy called "Absolutely Anything."

The Pythons will voice a group of aliens who give an earthling the power to do "absolutely anything." Their reason? To see how much trouble he causes. What can I say, aliens are jerks. There is also a talking dog, voiced by Robin Williams. Of course there is. Still, I'll see almost anything with Monty Python attached to it. Even if director Terry Jones says it's not explicitly a "Monty Python" film.

"It's not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility," he said. That's good enough for me.
