Happy Thanksgiving Canada!!!


seven years ago i met (on the Internet) some Canadians...i was blogging for the first time and ended up on a Canadian website

My Space and all it's clones didn't exist yet....i was afraid to be there as myself so i attended as a 3rd party player...i mean so what...it was anonamoose as they would all say over and over

no personal pictures...E-mail Addy's...real names...ages...etc etc etc....and that was when the Internet was in it's infancy and relatively safe

i got lucky..it was a small site...the people were friendly...they put up with 'Mericans...were willing to lecture me endlessly on the in depth understanding of hockey...why Curling does deserve to be an Olympic sport....bring me up to date on every ROCK band i loved that was indeed


they tickled me with the fabrication that Canadians bleed Red and White ice cubes...i think that was pulled from some funny ad...about ...could it be the ole flying Maple Leaf or once again (because it's just plain sown into the national fabric)


i learned to sing "Oh Canada" during the winter Olympics...and then was hounded because i didn't learn it in French...i was taught to hate KD Lang (she bad mouthed Albertan beef) and Celine Dion(i don't think even they know why that's a rule)

made to understand that Canada beat the CRAP out of us in the War of 1812...made it right to the White House and played HOCKEY on the front lawn

to which i quickly countered ...well u wimps gave up all of the Oregon Territories u silly Canucks!!!

the 49th parallel is the longest unguarded border in the world...and i uberlove the fact that to the North of me aboot 2000miles i got some pretty nice homeys who are have their Thanksgiving feast there today

i figure it a thanksgiving for me too to have great friends in the Great White North like all of you


I've put this in my Canadian blog and have already been accused of being disingenuous and just using these kinds of uberflattering words as lures for extras portions of stuffing when i come there trolling for turkey later today

*they of course figured out my ruse immediately***

*now I'll have to use my not fully formulated** **"art of the Canadian insult" to get that extra piece of pie* ****....dang!!!!***

Awwwww Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!!! Lovely people!!

What are their traditions, nan, do they really eat turkey, too??

LOL I was on a site with a number of Canadians, I guess they feel about hockey the way we feel about football, only more so!!


nan shartel Oct. 12, 2009 @ 11:56 a.m.

yes they r turkey eating fools...and they r also hockey lovin and playin' fools

male babies born who can't close their hands over a puck are discarded immediately and their births aren't registered

and their heads must fit leather goalie helmets by the time they're 3

the Canadian geese fly south in the fall to avoid the oven and knife

all the noise u hear in the sky as they fly over are them just jeering at them

and every Canadian i know would be so proud of me today for the FORMIDIBLE way I'm putting them down

i've learned my lessons well CANADA!!!!!!!

nan shartel Oct. 12, 2009 @ 6:14 p.m.

thx fishstix...oh BTB...Styx is not a Canadian rock band ..but RUSH is!!!


FullFlavorPike Oct. 12, 2009 @ 6:45 p.m.

Do you mean "curling" not "hurling" as an olympic sport? I was under the impression that "hurling" was strictly the domain of exceedingly drunken Irishmen. Curling rules, bee tee dubs. Looks like so much fun. But, then again, I grew up in a land of cold, hard winters where you do what you can to stave off the depression that comes from not seeing the sun and getting frostbite.

"Do you mean "curling" not "hurling" as an olympic sport? I was under the impression that "hurling" was strictly the domain of exceedingly drunken Irishmen."

You didn't see me in high school. Oh, wait. I'm part Irish. That could explain it.

nan mentioned:

"Styx is not a Canadian rock band ..but RUSH is!!!"




nan shartel Oct. 13, 2009 @ 9:58 a.m.

Pike...of course i mean Curling...I'm a dork incarnate...i was picturing brawny Scots in kilts that made me think of Hurling...throwing them big trees across the land and me hoping for a wind to lift their sails!!!

women also get exceedingly drunk in the COLD COLD Winter and sit and knit codpieces for them to stave off frostbite


nan shartel Oct. 13, 2009 @ 10:01 a.m.

AntiM...i will request a Rush song for u this morning and you didn't bring enough yarn for the codpieces gal

nan shartel Oct. 13, 2009 @ 1:40 p.m.

and all u cuddlefish know what a codpiece is...hahahahahaha


PistolPete Oct. 13, 2009 @ 2:11 p.m.

I was if it's called a codpiece because said wearer's "member"was as cold and limp as a piece of cod.....


David Dodd Oct. 13, 2009 @ 2:16 p.m.

Actually, Pete, "cod" is from Middle-English, for "scrotum".


PistolPete Oct. 13, 2009 @ 2:19 p.m.

I'll never look at cod the same way again :-( LOL! I figured there had to be a rational explanation for the word but was too lazy to look it up.


David Dodd Oct. 13, 2009 @ 3:08 p.m.

Actually, after some quick research, there is a lot of differing opinion on how the fish is called a cod. Cod is Germanic in origin, meaning "bag", which obviously implies "scrotum", and that is certainly the origin for the Middle English "cod" in "codpiece".

It isn't so simple with the fish. Some etymologists seem to take the lazy way out and simply point to the Germanic root, but the fish does not resemble a bag in any way. The best explanation I could find for "cod" as a fish, is that it was derived from the Old English "cotfish".


nan shartel Oct. 13, 2009 @ 3:35 p.m.

wowsa...thx guys..i didn't know it's meaning when i met them crazy Canucks but i never got given a real language derivative explanation either


SDaniels Oct. 15, 2009 @ 9:41 p.m.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving, Nan! My family is Canadian, some hailing from Steinbach, Manitoba, and some from Montreal-- but they now for many years celebrate the American Thanksgiving instead. Besides turkey, they like to make a holiday tortiere, a minced, heavily spiced meat pie, and I'd say they are more fans of Labatt Blue than Molson ;)


nan shartel Oct. 18, 2009 @ 10:21 a.m.

they would like Labatt's them Frenchies....hahahahahahahaha

i knew i was drawn to u for somne reason...it's the Canuck connection
