American CEOs, meet Ladybucks, the new dollar for those pushy female ladies. It's a bill worth 83 cents to the U.S. dollar, so those ladies working for you will never complain that they're making less than their male counterparts, ever again.

Ladies: You can either choose to your accept your Ladybucks silently, or change your name to John, stay single, never have children and don't age, according to John Oliver. There are NO other solutions to address America's wage gap.

Watch this segment, from "Last Week Tonight." It's killer.
