OK, time for some of us Cannucks to pipe in, eh!

Growing up I lived near Deetroyit, a large Mare Can siddy lying across the Deetroyit River from Windsor, Untario. Other Mare Can places known to Canajans are Buff Low, Tcha Coggo, and Ore Gone.

LORD TUNDERIN' JESUS, BYE! Ya ever been to Tunder Bay?

How about people who talk about the purchase of very expensive audiophile speakers on certain home audio message boards and end their critique with the phrase "I never looked back." That is starting to make me cringe just a little.

aww, c'mon littleb, how about the "even my wife noticed the difference from the kitchen/bedroom/upstairs/root cellar". That's got to be worse.

Sorry spiff, but one of your recent posts warrants the Angry Flower:



No offense, as usual.

Yeah, an extra proofreading would insure that the glasses of wine were not effecting your writing.

Hi,

Loved the cartoon. Another thing: it's "receiver," not "reciever"! Don't grade schools teach that little rhyme anymore? "i" before "e" except after "c"?

There is an exception, of course, this being English: their.
