Sorry but thats bullshit.

The Red Ensign would have been flown over Parliament when Sir John A. MacDonald was Prime Minister so the flag depiction on the ten is correct.

The first issue of Playboy, in 1953, which sold for a mere fifty cents, was never dated, because Hugh Hefner assumed he'd never publish another.

The word "vanilla" comes from the Latin word vagina, because of the vanilla pod's resemblance to the female genitalia.

The male pig has a corkscrew shaped penis that looks like his tail, and he slowly "winds" into the female pig before achieving a ten-minute-long orgasm.

There is more to sex in the animal kingdom than doing it doggie style. Did you know that a barnacle's penis is 150 percent of its body length?

Did you know that in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, it is illegal to have sex with a truck driver in a tollbooth?

Grand Tetons literally means "big tits".

A sex change has never been performed in Ireland, yet!

Lions will have sex about 500 times with one mate to ensure fertilization.

A female orgasm is a powerful painkiller (due to the release of endorphins), so headaches are in fact a bad excuse not to have sex!
