New Darwin coin!

Daily Mirror (my butler reads it): Darwin and ape on new £2 coin

The 200th birthday of Charles Darwin is being celebrated with a new £2 coin featuring the great scientist and an ape.

Excellent news. But I feel I should point out that the Mirror should have said that the great scientist will appear with another ape. Or two, if you count Her Majesty on the reverse side. Darwin and the Queen, let us not forget, are also apes.

Who says the Royal Mint never never made any sense? [Made any sense—do you see what I did there?]
