    Are you all "ooohhhhh" or "meh" over the "kill and wait" show which is in town at the moment?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Actually I had to hide in the snow this morning when the Local Commissar came to round people up, demanding we don our mucklucks, head down to the hall for donuts and bacon, and wave to the Royal couple in a special patriotic nation-wide satellite uplink special.

    hmm... should start celebrating Portugal day on cboard too. And don't think I'm alone in here. It coincides with Aussies Anzac day. An "International getting p..ed" contest beats any 1st or 4th of July.

    Anyways, congratulations to all Canucks, and all that. Would seem wrong not to say anything.

    EDIT: cboard bad words filter is a little over the top. Is it really that bad to say p i s s e d? There's a distinction between vulgarity and obscenity, you know.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    LOL... Salem, take a look at a map sometime... Canada is geographically almost half again as big as the US... and there's more than one town...
    (But you already knew that... didn't you?)

    Their closest stop for me would be a 12 hour drive...

    Yes you should...

    Given the membership list of these forums... I be amazed if you were!

    Yeah! Fireworks and Canadian beer... It doesn't get much better.

    Well, since the igloos melted from global warming, we've been experimenting with cement and wood...
    So, yes, they get "the royal treatment"...

    ROFL...

    Here's a gem for you...

    Right around this time of year Canadian gas station operators get some very strange customers, mostly from the US...

    My cousin's favorite was the SUV from Texas that pulled in last Canada Day, complete with ski racks and a trailer with 2 snowmobiles. The driver asked "Where's all the snow"... My cousin answered... "About 2000 miles due north"...

    Gotta love it. By lattitude, some parts of Southern Ontario are further south than the northern border of California....

    LOL.

    At least you get a day to celebrate. We have to make do with being 90% of the villains (and about 40% of the non-leading good guys) in movies.

    Didn't you know? It's always Canada's fault.

    USA movie criminals either flee to Mexico or Canada.
    Conversely, real life Canadians are always trying to sneak in to USA.
    Canada always threatens to cut energy when USA doesn't pay. Unfair!
    Canada has French as an official language... and french!
    Canada's lumber puts everyone out of business.
    Celine Dion is a running joke. All other nations pop artists are cultural icons.
    Canadians are always trying to tell USA how to run the world.
    Canada's Exclusive Economic Zone gets in the way of a certain country fishing rights. Doesn't matter that it's the only country in the world with an EEC smaller than its territorial waters. They are greedy, and that's just it!
