I guess the real question is "should his people be allowed to use the traditional method of pummelling the rhinoceroi to death with Timbits?"

I'm sorry, but being from the West I must insist that real cappucino and displaced palm trees be involved.......really.

Ouch, that one hurt! I have friends who are SAR.

I don't like that they are in danger the minute they fire the rotors.

My brother-in-law is in line for Afghanistan right now.

Just make sure he keeps his forest green on so they know whence he comes.

I wish it was that simple.

Only the good die young as Mr. Joel once said.

At least it isn't Iraq. I for one applaud the little man from Shawinigan for getting us out of that one. It was a political move but what the hell, he's a politician.

Now Martin....HA!...he's already talking about the West being a power centre. I'll believe it when I see it....but I want to see it.

As long as the west doesn't include Brown Shirt Klein with his pencil thin moustache and red armband! If he ever got any real power then somebody would be sending the inspectors in here!

Alberta isn't the West! It's a Texas annex! I've never met better people than those from Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Albertans are aliens without exception.smiley - biggrin

btw (completely off topic) I may have come up with the best title for a thread in all of Hootoo!

"Intercontinental Ballistic Teletubbies"

did I mention that I was born in Ottawa?

speaking of intercontinental ballistic teletubbies:

So, when the suggestion first was floated around that Columbia (the space shuttle, not the state) may have been damaged by frozen vented waste water, did you tastlessly but helplessly think "It was brought down by an icey BM"? Get it? ICBM? you know, I use that acronym with people nowadays and they don't know what it means, they've never heard it before. That might be a good thing to not know about.

Tastelessly tasty! I like. I'm assuming you are GenX or abouts? Personally I'm on the butt end of the Boomers. Messy back here....

butt end as well. I used to be able to tell a person's age by just saying "I read the news today, oh boy" Those youngsters would just say, "oh? what happened?"

Very good!!

Do you ask them about McCartney's band before Wings?

I always loved Sting's song "Born in the 50's" because he cheated and was born in the same year as me- 52

jeez, they don't know who McCartney was (past tense intentional) let alone Wings.

I just thought of something. Maybe, if this thread actually gets noticed at all, we could start naming people honourary H2G2 Canadians. Of course, they'd have to be very polite, and witty, and very concerned about all of the good people in the world who are disadvantaged because of the injustices of past history, and they'd have to know who Stephen Lewis is.

the thing is, if somebody started a thread like the one you just mentioned, I wouldn't defend my country: I'd just say, go ahead, find where I live on an unlabeled map; or, ask the Danes; or, ask the Dutch; or, ask the south Italians (but make sure they don't think your German or they'll kick you); or, Nelson Mandela is an honourary citizen of what northern country? We don't need to defend ourselves: I can't see us taking any attack seriously.

Stephan Lewis....isn't he one of the Bare Naked Ladies??
smiley - laugh

I'm all for it, but the secret handshake should involve apologising to inanimate objects if you bump into them!
