There is apparently speculation that the dogs referred to are actually monk seals, which would have been sea dogs in Latin.

I saw this quiz many years back. I think that Panama hats are made in South America--but dinged if I recall which country.

Definitely Equador.

I think camel hair brushes are made from badger hair.
Purple finches are a pinkish red.
Chinese gooseberries come from New Zealand.

I only knew 7, 8 and 9. I guess I'll be stuck in high school forever?

Foolestroupe, where did you find a bathroom for only a penny? Even in Hungary it's the equivalent of USA 50 cents.

My grandfather told me that... :-)

It's OLD folkllore ... don't remember the rest of it.

I can remember back in the 1950s there were a few very old public toilets that I saw with the penny mechanism here in Aust. None around now that I know of - too much trouble and temptation.

The only price I ever saw charged in Canada was 10 cents. In Germany, it was 20 pfennig.

And I haven't seen a pay toilet at all in years and years.

Whatever price they charged, it was always "spend a penny", from the good old pre-decimalisation days when you could find one without a microscope. I remember thinking that one good thing about devaluation when the pound dropped from $2.80 to $2.40 was that now a penny would be the same as a US cent.
