Trivia Tuesday...

“Three dog night” is an expression attributed to Australian Aborigines. It came about because on especially cold nights these nomadic people needed three dogs (dingos, actually) to keep from freezing.

Oh, it's also an American rock band, which formed in 1967.
I think I remember "Mama Told Me Not to Come" the most clearly,
or "Joy to the World" (not the Christmas carol).
Oh, and "One"!!!

Other trivia...

Emus are found only in Australia.
