Bite me, Santa.

I missed #1 with two years, but I remembered #4 from Wikipedia,

my elementary school teacher always told us to treat our brushes like we'd treat a squirrel because that's what they were made from(5).

I was in Tenerife in March(6) and I used to watch a lot of National Geographic Channel when I had it(10).

 

But I did like the post. smile.png

Got #4 and #10 right.

#6 ? Are there Canary Islands in the Pacific too? Can't find anything in Google, might be a mistake there. Makes sense if they mean the Canary Islands in the Atlantic, they tend to refer to Gran Canaria as Gran Can (big dog in spanish).
