Yes, fear the Canadian GEESE. Those things can be ornery if you get too close!

You know, those Canada geese fly south to the USA every winter. They know a good place when they see it!

Smile You forgot some things

You forgot bangers and mash, Tim Horton's, The White Spot, and gas prices which look good until you find out it's the price of .264 gallon.

Reminds me of a joke:
A guy wants to move to North Dakota and is told he must have 1/4 of his brain removed. He says, "If I must, I must." and accepts the surgery.
When he wakes up the Dr tells him they are very sorry, but they removed 3/4 instead of the intended 1/4.
He says, "How 'boot that, eh?"

BTW, I know of a Canadian who has a .44 magnum with the permission of the government. He lives in an area frequented by bears.

Any adult Canadian can own a .44 magnum as long as they have a permit which basically involves a criminal background check. The difference between the US and Canada is that Canadians aren't allowed to wander around with a handgun tucked in their jeans. A carry permit is only good for transport to a defined location such as a range. Shotguns and rifle rules are much less restrictive.

There are exceptions to the handgun carry rule. I believe prospectors, among others, can carry a handgun instead of a rifle.

Story on CBC TV tonight on "gun culture" stated that Canadians own eight million guns. That with a population of about 35 million.

This has been a very informative thread. With 8 million guns in Canada, I feel much more comfortable visiting there, though the ketchup potato chips are still a little unsettling.

However, after reading about the coming new world order in the now closed thread, I'm looking to get a face transplant and to have my fingerprints erased.

Well, we made it into the 73rd post before the humour gave way to yet another tedious gun control discussion. Time to shut down the thread...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

As long as the posts stay fun and don't turn into a debate on whether gun ownership is good or bad, it shall remain open to other forms of jesting amongst members.

Though, please do keep it in fun. We Canuckleheads are a tough lot, brought on from generations of wrestling polar bears, while sleeping nekkid in our igloos, whilie sucking on whate fat and icicles for sustanence, so give us your best (light hearted) abuse.

Canada is also about red-jacketed mounted policemen and canoes.

Itza a very Pacific Northwest morning here in the campground at Ft. de Soto in Gulf Coast Floor-eee-duh so I fired up the mi-fi to find youse giving me a good laugh whilst watching the rain fall.

Thanks for the vid-clips....absolutely love the Red Green show...itza shame it's not run down here in the States (or at least in SC where we park the rig when not on the road.) Might have to look into acquiring that video.

Y'all made my morning.

Josie

I think that some PBS stations run the R-G show in the states. That is how I learned most of what I know about automobiles.
