Get Off My Lawn

I can't tell if he's laughing or crying.

Happy Fourth of July

Fourth of July 1

Happy Birthday, America. You gave us rock ‘n’ roll, baseball, and jazz music (though I don’t care for jazz personally), and if Canada ever finds itself in a fight we know you’ll help us. We couldn’t ask for better neighbours. I mean,  just look at poor South Korea and the Ukraine. I’d like to take a moment to say thanks for all you do. Except Florida.

Florida, you need to get your shit together.

  1. Ha! Fun post. Canada’s a great neighbor, too. Of course, I lived there for five years as a child so I’m biased. Oh, how I miss those Aero bars. Can’t get them here, at least not in my neck of the woods. But I never could get used to the word ‘tuque.’ Always made me laugh. Still does…

    • Thanks Carrie. Tuque is a strange word. Where in Canada did you live?

      • In Weyburn, Saskatchewan. We literally had a trailer on the prairie. Ours was the only trailer (a double-wide, so it wasn’t like we were total rednecks…) on the outskirts of town when we moved there. When we left there were many more. The snow was so high in the winter, and in the spring, the mucky mud was a challenge to walk through on the way to school. My kids don’t know how good they have it!

      • My wife know Weyburn well. Her family is from Sask. My brother-in-law is from there. My wife yes, indeed, the snow gets very high. Gee, small world. Living in a trailer on the prarie!? That is impressive.

      • I couldn’t do it now, that’s for sure. Winter is not my forte.

  4. Hahaha. That’s funny. The Yanks here were celebrating 4th July. Most joined in…. They had no idea what it was about but any excuse for a drink and party, the Aussies are there!

    • Hahaha. Geez Aussies, way to stereotype yourselves. When is Australia’s birthday?

      • 26th January. Usually around about the time when we have managed to discharge most idiots with their drunken injuries from New Years, then we get the influx from Australia Day shenanigans.

      • I just read an article in Vice about the Australian moll (sp?) which, they explained, are a breed of young Australian female that is prone to violence, sexual aggresiveness, and binge drinking almost to the point of alcohol poisoning. One of the favourite drinks is a shot called “wet pussy.” Sigh. If only I were twenty years younger. And Australian. Hahahaha.

      • Have u seen the drink?!?! It’s raspberry liqueur, milk and Irish cream, the sight of it makes me wanna gag. It reminds me of abnormal bodily fluids from unmentionable orifices. *gag* it’s almost as bad as making postpartum women swallow their own placenta. *gag again*

      • I have not seen the drink. And the postpartum thing:Whaaaaaaaat the fuck? Eating the placenta? Please explain.

      • Used to be the done thing, to replace and rebalance the missing hormones during postpartum period. Apparently in China, someone would go around and collect then at the hospital, dry them and crush them in powder. Becomes a hormone treatment in Chinese medicine. I think there are health regulation against that now. How did we get onto this subject?!?!?! 😛

      • Hahaha. Wow and Yuck! That’s one supplement I can do without. Yeah, how did we get on this subject?

  5. Laughed out loud. But dude…I do love Disney Land and had a great time in Florida when I went back in Grade 7! Although I see your point totally with all the crazy shit that goes on there!

    Here is a fellow Canadian who backs up wishing American a Happy July 4th. You know, despite it being two days later:)

  6. I MEAN AMERICA. Dude, I think I am cursed with spelling mistakes every single time I leave a comment on your page!

    • It must have something to with my wife being an English professor. I have the worst spelling in the world and it is my wife who helps edit my posts. She even corrects my shopping lists. I call her the grammar nazi. So never feel you need to correct any spelling error as I likely won’t even notice them. I think of myself as more of an “ideas guy.”
