This morning over breakfast, we were talking about what animals (or people) where on different coins and bills. It started with a revelation that it is a caribou and not a moose on the Canadian quarter. This is a common misnomer because in Canadian penny-ante poker, when you want to increase a bid by a quarter you “raise it a moose” (little Canadian gambling trivia to start your day).
Anyway, we went through what was on the penny, nickel, dime, quarter dollar coin… we got to the five dollar bill. As few of you likely know, the Canadian 5 has a picture of Wilfred Laurier, Canada’s 7th, and often considered greatest, Prime Minister. So… when we asked who is on the five dollar bill, our 12 year old daughter’s response — Will Ferrell.
