|Eleven Eight Fifty - Nifty

Pride was fun. The march was a bit shorter, but probably just as well, given that by the end of O'Connell Street, my arms were already hurting from doing poi.
After food, and milling around bars, we went back to Jack's. Now, this is where I made my real discovery of the day. There's a directory enquiries service called 11850, which also offers a question answering service. Some odd questions may have been sent that night. Unfortunately, I only have the exact answers to the two questions that I sent, but perhaps others will contribute.
I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to determine why we said "That'd be something 11850 can answer".
Question: How many nipples does a cow have?
Answer: They have four. An udder is the mammary organ of female cattle and some other mammals, including goats and sheep. Thank you!
Question: Are you guys like a Magic 8-Ball?
Answer: Yes. It is used for fortune-telling or seeking advice. How about you?
Just as a point of history - 11850 used to advertise this service, but withdrew it after a few weeks - it's quite likely that questions like these would be a root cause. However, the service is still running and costs 50c per text.
