Very nice Doc. You should have put these in the "Trivia" section.

Wasn't my turn...  I got this in an email this morning, and thought it was too good not to share.  (By the way, I only got 6 of them right...!)

Here's the Google answer (don't tell Flynn I cheated :lol:)

"The term camel hair is very misleading. Camel hair brushes actually consist of various inexpensive hair types like Asian pony, bear, sheep or lesser grade squirrel hair. There is not a single hair from a real camel in a camel hair brush."

I always thought that the best camel hair brushes were the ones made from 100% syberian chinchula fur imported from Hong Kong.... :-D

My theory is that, back in the day, boar and bear were a little more challenging to collect hair samples from, so they used camel.  These days the camels are all out on jihad duty, so we have to use the Siberian chinchilla, which is kinda 'gamey' to eat, but the fur does wonders on your wife's hair...  8-)
