“Whoever invented crotch waxing must have made a Brazilian dollars!”

"Brazilian” (from Brazil) sounds like a large number (billion + gazillion). Several “Brazilian dollars” jokes involve Brazilian waxing, a bikini waxing style invented by the J. Sisters salon in Manhattan in the 1980s.

Wikipedia: Indefinite and fictitious numbers
-illion
Words with the suffix -illion (e.g. zillion, gazillion, jillion, bajillion, squillion, abigajillion) are often used as informal names for unspecified large numbers by analogy to names of large numbers such as million, billion and trillion.

These words are intended to denote a number that is large enough to be unfathomable and are typically used as hyperbole or for comic effect.

Wikipedia: Bikini waxing
Brazilian waxing (or the sphinx wax) is the removal of all pubic hair from the pelvic region, vulva, labia, perineum, and anus, while sometimes leaving a thin strip of hair on the mons pubis. It can be used by those who wear thong bikinis. Brazilian waxing is also known as a full Brazilian wax, full bikini wax, or the Hollywood wax. This style was first called the Brazilian wax by the J. Sisters salon in Manhattan, founded in 1987 by seven sisters named Padilha from Brazil.
