10/11 Okay, as an 8 yr old, given a test, (England, teachers were hard as nails then), thought a white elephant was big, as the crow flies his wings flap, storm in a teacup, when the tea spills. Jeezz what a COW of a teacher she was!

11/11 although Fortune favors the brave is more commonly used in Canada rather than bold.
