twenty questions with a coinTwenty Questions with a coin VII

Today's coin is another import, a two-pound piece from Britain
that's been hanging out in the front hallway. It's got gears on it, and it's
made of two different metals, like an inside-out toonie. Say hello, two pounds!

(Heads) 'Ello!

Did you just say hello?

(Tails) No, I said 'ello. And that's close enough.

Excellent. Now then.
1. Is it animal?

(Heads) Yes.

2. Is it a person?

(Heads) Yes.

3. Male?

(Tails) No.

4. Is this a person who does or has actually existed?

(Heads) Yes.

5. Is this person alive currently?

(Tails) No.

6. Is this person an artist of some sort, an actress, perhaps?

(Tails) No.

7. Was this person alive in the past hundred years?

(Tails) No.

8. The past thousand years?

(Tails) No.

Hmm.
9. Would this person be considered Caucasian, by today's standards?

(Heads) Yes.

10. Was she a queen?

(Tails) No.

11. Is she featured in the Bible?

(Heads) Yes.

12. Old Testament?

(Tails) No.

13. Was her name Mary?

(Heads) Yes.

14. Are we talking about Mary, Jesus' mother?

(Heads) Yes.

Ah, excellent. A nice iconic figure.
15. Anything else I need to know?

(Tails) No.

Well then. Thank you, two pounds. It's been a pleasure. I have to admit,
I was worried you'd saddle me with a Queen of England. The Israeli five sheqel
coin was a lot more ethnocentric.

(Tails) Oh, I wouldn't do that.

Apparently not. So... should I put you back in that dish in the hall, then?

(Tails) No, I don't like it there. S'cold.

Hmm. I see. Well.... um... how about the squirrel jar in the kitchen?

(Heads) That sounds lovely.

Mary, Jesus' mother.
