Yeah, I can't argue with that....

 

Friggin Canadians...I'm up in Montreal a few years ago and I order some chicken wings.  It comes with a side of french fries.  When it gets there, there's only one box.  I'm intrigued.  I open it up and they filled the bottom of the box with the fries, then layered the wings on top of the fries, and then poured about a quart of sauce over all of it.  What kind of backwards crap is that???

You should have slapped them - that's the appropriate response with those Frenchie-talking types.  But they're easy to push around.  I vacationed in Quebec a decade ago, they didn't have the non-smoking room I reserved many months in advance (it was exactly the Seinfeld reservations scene), and instead they stuck us in a suite that smelled like it had been smoked in only a few minutes before.  After complaining to the manager that I didn't care if the interior-view suite was twice as big as the river-view room I had originally reserved, and we couldn't stay in it anyway because my wife and I both had tobacco allergies, he initially tried to tell me they were booked solid.  When I told him we'd take one of the rooms they always hold in reserve, he finally caved and gave us maybe the finest suite in all of Quebec, that normally cost 4x what our original room should have cost. 

 

After that, when we realized what pushovers those Frenchie-Quebec-ers were, every meal we'd walk into a restaurant, state loudly "WE'LL TAKE YOUR FINEST TABLE AND YOU BETER COMP THE HORS D'OEVRES AND CHAMPAGNE - WE'RE AMERICAN, DAMMIT!"   Worked like a charm.  My wife went into a boutique, found a silk scarf she liked and the store clerk stopped us on the way out, I guess to see about paying for it.  We just said "OH, IT'S OK - WE'RE AMERICANS!  NO NEED TO BOTHER" and they just waived us on out the door.

 

 

True story (the hotel part, that is).

Drinking a couple manhattans and then yelling Chewbacca after a Dufner drive sounds more fun then doing neither.

That is surprising, especially since the last few were more entertaining.

Anyone see the excellent History Channel show Vikings (the tale of an adventurous viking farmer who rose to become the first raid leader to attack the British Isles, then an earl, finally King of Denmark)?  It was a bit disconcerting watching these thoughtful family men, in the process of sacking Lindisfarne abbey, momentarily pause with astonishment at how easy it was to kill the defenseless, helpless monks, before resuming the slaughter.

Will one of our other neighbors to the north please explain to your countryman about the concept of "tongue in cheek."  Saturday is giving you guys a bad name - he may have provided some of the inspiration for Strange Brew.

I know it wasn't actual poutine, but if you don't like soggy fries, you don't like soggy fries.

Whatever, I'll say it. I don't like poutine. Or soggy fries of any variety. a2_wink.gif
