AND EVEN THAT WON'T MAKE CANADA INTERESTING:

Dirty, sexy money: people saw sex toys, religious symbols on plastic cash (Steve Rennie, The Canadian Press)

Canada's new plastic money may give you a little more bang for your buck.

New documents show a focus group mistook a strand of DNA on the $100 bill for a sex toy.

Most people also thought the see-through window on the new polymer notes was shaped like the contours of a woman's body.

Others looked into the port holes of a famed Canadian icebreaker and saw a skull and crossbones staring back at them.

These are just some of the offbeat images focus groups thought they saw on the plastic bank notes that go into circulation next month.
