Default Kind of odd?, EH!???

For the very first time I have ever seen this.

The "Toronto", Canada Santa Claus Parade (with Leslie and Susan??) was just shown on TV3 in NZ.

I have never seen this event on Telly ever before???

Very odd.

We plan to take over New Zealand!!

There are dormant drugs in the Canadian Peameal bacon we ship to you.

And all the tuques we send over have microtransmitters implanted in them.

While watching the Santa Claus parade, the signal was transmitted by Santa's float, activating the chip in the tuque, and causing your body to release enzymes that interact with the drug in the bacon to make you guys like us.

Oh my,

I have that feeling right now........

....that sinking feeling when my wife says something and I can't think of what to say, then I resort to personal attacks like "don't you think those size 4 pants are a little tight hun?"

Then I run out of the room like my life depended on it, because it does!

(beware young man, another comment like that and I shall be forced to retaliate with cheap personal attacks) !!

Sorry. Touchy subject.

I still harken back to the day when they were known as the " Maple Griefs", so I guess I'm not so young a man after all.

But I do remember being "old enough" to celebrate at least four Stanley Cup wins in the last 3 decades or so. I do hope you are older than I....

a very big

Hmmm, your posts are very youthful and funny. I thought you were the same age or younger than I am.

You actually "remember" the last stanley cup??? Wow, because I wasn't born then. We still call them the "Toronto Maple Laughs".

Re-reading my post, you can tell I am a FRENCH Canadian by the way I said "imposter Canadian, instead of Canadian imposter! The French tend to say/write things backwards, as in "balle rouge" instead of "red ball". I guess I'm more bilingual than I thought!
