Deu Zebra! 709-B/W

Deu Zebra! (Zebra happened!) is a Brazilian expression that refers to something that actually happened although it is impossible that it could happen :-)
The expression originates from the game "Jogo do Bicho" (Animal Game), an illegal gambling game very popular throughout Brazil. For mnemonic purposes, the gambling numbers are associated with 25 animals, none of which is a zebra.
