QUIZ ANSWER: TOKYO GOLD DRESS MADE OF AUSTRIAN COINS

Jim Duncan, Jeff Starck and Ginger Rapsus correctly noted
the answer to last week's quiz question.  I asked, "Who
can spot the error in the story about the gold coin dress
from Japan?"

Ginger Rapsus writes: "I believe the gold Philharmonic
coins are from Austria, not Australia.  That reminds me
of a story...I once heard of someone who walked into a
post office and tried to mail a package to Austria.  The
person behind the counter insisted Austria was an
abbreviation for Australia, and refused to mail the
package!"
