American actress Roseanne Barr has tweeted cryptic support for Bitcoin.
Already controversial for her support of the Occupy movement, and calling for the beheading of bankers, Roseanne Barr seems to be backing Bitcoin as the perfect currency for trading after the apocalypse.

first post apocalyptic law: slavery in all forms is now illegal-including debt slavery. #BITCOIN
Quickly followed by:
2nd law: war is illegal in every form. 3rd law-usury and speculation not based on actual cost of output & profit sharing is illegal #bitcoin
We're not entirely sure that Bitcoin could pass Roseanne's third law and we'll have to hope that the apocalypse doesn't take out the internet. The official Twitter feed is here.
