How much would I have to pay you to get a piglet, a pineapple, and a lobster in your pants?

I guess that would depend from person to person. But, what would be the minimum amount I would have to pay?

$75 Australian, as these are all slang terms for Australian money.

Around 8% of Japan's GDP is kept at home rather than banks because the interest rates as so low (they are actually negative).

"So long as Japan has what can broadly be categorized as a zero interest-rate policy, the amount will continue to grow," said Hideo Kumano, the Tokyo-based chief economist at Dai-ichi Life and a former BOJ [Bank of Japan] official. "What it means for 40 trillion yen to be sleeping under mattresses is that the deflationary mindset is deeply rooted, and Japanese have become hyper-sensitive to risk."

I like the comic image of 40 trillion yen being kept under mattresses.
