I knew 12, 18, 22, 23 and 25, heard of a couple more but weren't quite sure what they meant, and the best of the lot, which I had NO idea about was No. 19!! LOOOOOOOL!!! I've got to keep that one in mind. Rectal Teresmus!!!! It reminds me of lumbricus terrestris (proper name for a common earthworm!).
ROFL.
