The Minnow would be lost
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,The Ludwig von Mises Institute has an article on the monetary system of Gilligan's Island, answering the burning question - why do people still accept the Professor's dollars when there's no government on the island to back up the money?
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port,
Aboard this tiny Ship.
- "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island", written by Sherwood Schwartz and George Wyle
