"These guys are strange" exclaimed Grandpa

"Why?" I opened my mouth. Too late.

"They constantly talk about only one country and only one sport-- boring sport if you ask me, and, get this, only one drink!"

"who?" I shouldn't have.

"and why in the world would you discuss only one month? Constantly? You tell me"

I couldn't. Maybe you can.

These folks are:

The people at NATO


Among the codewords in their phonetic alphabet only one is a country (INDIA), only one is a sport (GOLF), only one is a drink (WHISKEY*), and only one is a month (NOVEMBER).

My advice - perhaps you should:

Take up dancing - with both FOXTROT and TANGO, you'll have twice as much to talk about! ;-)

* Of course this assumes:

We ignore 'Tango' as a brand name of soft drink...!

These folk could be:

Santa's elves!

Since they:

Only talk about:
The North Pole (which they consider a country, their country). Sure they deliver gifts all over the world to every country, but they only talk about the goings on at the North Pole.
Reindeer Games (Rudolf wasn't allowed to participate until that fateful night).
Milk (mainly who gave Santa a glass and who didn't).
And December, of course, is the one and only focus all year round.
