Lucy Holcombe Pickens was first to be on paper currency used in the United States. Pocahontas was second (depicted on the back) and Martha Washington was third (depicted on the front of the bill). Sacagawea, Susan B. Anthony and Helen Keller have been circulating on coins for a while now too. Further, there have been 4 more women depicted on non-circulating, legal U.S. tender: Queen Isabella of Spain, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Eleanor Dare and Virginia Dare. Since the inception of the "First Spouses" coin collection there have been 36 more women depicted on legal, U.S. tender.

If I didn't know a couple of Mastiffs, I'dve guessed the St. Bernard, but the Mastiffs are really sweet! So, I don't know!

I've known a few of each of these breeds, so I'm going to guess the Great Dane, because each Dane I've met thought he was a lap dog.

C. Mastiff

All these breeds except the Mastiff appear on the most dangerous list, compiled in a 20-year study for the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

About the currency, I would say Martha Washington, too. She's just as ancient as Jefferson, Ben Franklin and the rest.

I think that Soujourner Truth is going to appear on the 20s soon, isn't she?

My guess is the Mocha Cookie Crumble...that's chocolate and cookies, right?? (I don't do any kind of coffee, but I'm guessing that chocolate and cookies would pack a punch!)

You are correct

Answer: B. Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino

The Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino is a hefty 590 calories, consisting of mocha sauce, vanilla syrup and Frappuccino chips, blended with Frappuccino roast, milk, and ice. The drink is topped with whipped cream and cookie crumbles.
