twenty questions with a coinTwenty Questions with a coin VI

Today's coin is an import... an Israeli five new sheqalim piece.
We'll just say this side with the number is heads, and the side with the
menorah and the weird curvy thing is tails. Say hello, five-sheqels!

(Heads) Shalom.

Okay, then.
1. Is it animal?

(Heads) Ken.

2. Is it human?

(Tails) Lo.

3. Is it alive?

(Tails) Lo.

4. Is it edible?

(Heads) Ken.

5. Is it kosher?

(Heads) Ken.

Wow, what are the odds of... well, one in thirty-two, I guess. But still.
6. Is it cooked?

(Heads) Ken.

7. Is it mammalian?

(Tails) Lo.

8. Avian?

(Tails) Lo.

Ho boy... Let me get out Leviticus, here...
9. Fish?

(Heads) Ken.

Oh, good. I didn't want to get into locusts and that.
10. Is it breaded, or covered in a sauce?

(Heads) Ken.

11. Breaded?

(Heads) Ken.

12. Served with vegetables, perhaps?

(Tails) Lo.

13. Is it hot, fresh, and ready to be eaten?

(Tails) Lo.

14. Is this because something nasty has happened to it?

(Tails) Lo.

15. Is it cold?

(Tails) Lo.

16. Is it spoiled?

(Heads) Ken.

So, a breaded kosher fish fillet that has gone bad.
17. Anything else I need to know?

(Heads) Ken.

Hmm, three questions left...
18. Is it being assailed by scavengers, perhaps?

(Tails) Lo.

19. Is it lying out in the dirt?

(Tails) Lo.

Agh.
20. Is it symbolic, somehow, of the Chosen People's predicament in the world today?

(Heads) Ken.

Oh, I don't believe this. You expect me to draw some sort of political
cartoon involving a rotting piece of fish?

(Heads) Ken.

Ah, well, I'll try. Thanks for your time, five sheqel piece.

(Tails) Go soak your head, goyim.

Jackass.

A political cartoon involving a rotting piece of fish

Yeah, I'm not sure what this means either.
