PICK a number between six and 10. Take away five and multiply the result by three. Take that number and square it. Add the digits together (ie 144, 1+4+4 = 9), then subtract four, multiply by two and subtract six.
Correspond the number you are left with to a letter of the alphabet (1=A, 2=B etc) and choose a country starting with that letter. Now, take the second letter from that country and pick an animal whose name starts with that letter.
Take the fourth letter from your animal and think of a colour starting with that letter.
Did you end up with a pink elephant from Denmark? Thought so.
