Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 24

Ten famous armadillos:

  1. Slow-and-Solid, from Kipling's "The Beginning of the Armadillos"
  2. Stickly-Prickly, also from Kipling's "The Beginning of the Armadillos"
  3. Bibo, from The Road to El Dorado
  4. The Neon Armadillo, now-defunct country music nightclub on Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World
  5. Clarence, the stuffed armadillo kept in Judge Stone's office in the NBC sitcom Night Court
  6. Armadillo World Headquarters, now-closed concert hall in Austin, Texas
  7. The Holiday Armadillo, Santa's part-Jewish friend
  8. Herman, Maynard G. Kreb's pet armadillo in the CBS sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis
  9. "The Armadillo," officially known as Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow, Scotland
  10. Andy the Armadillo, mascot of the Texas Roadhouse restaurant chain
