Wanted: Grumpy but Loveable Canadian...

Post by revbob » 02 Jun 2015, 7:40pm

Must know how to correctly use and pronounce the term eh? Must be a proponent all things metric, and an avid fan of the Red Sox, Wire and the Go Go's to name a few.

Serious inquiries only please.

I'm hoping the real doc returns (or at least is healthy/happy). But if he doesn't return we need to seriously consider a replacement. Some people may think I'm reacting too quickly being too hasty but we currently have no Canadian foil for all our anti Canadianism. Inder and Bio don't quite cut it (no offense guys).

Inder's a Leafs AND a Jay's fan. How much more foil can you crinkle up than that?

I can try and be Canadian, what do I do?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Can you eat poutine out of a packet; force yourself to watch football (oblong) with only 3 downs--analogy: being able to pick up the ball (round) and walk it slowly to midfield--; work up the bile to loathe this guy as much as your big-forehead-idiot-limey-in-charge-dude despite being about 8 times more boring (oh...but you still get to keep the same Queen); and take unrelenting abuse about sharing love of God and country and probably some distant relatives with Nickelback, Rush, and this superstar collection of whimsy?

If so, we can have the mounties hand-deliver your citizenship of the back of a moose. Or beaver or large, ill-tempered goose. Whichever's cheapest.

Well its not that simple. You'd also have to learn baseball and not just baseball but sabre metrics.

And I think to truly become the new doc you'd have to hate Kiss.

I will never, ever try to be Canadian.

I miss doc. :cry:

I emailed with him. He's ok. He's just going through some stuff. Hopefully we will hear from him here again sooner or later.

Aw man, I come back to lurk around here for a bit and one of my favourites is missing :( I hope all is well with the Dr. and we will see him soon.

I am Canadian, but could never live up to Medulla's level of curmudgeonly Canadian-ness.

OK...so looks like poutine is the bridge the Delicaheston shall not cross. :naughty:

Who's next? Hoy? We might have to rewrite the character into more of a Rob Ford type to suit your affinities for horrifying internal monologue spoken out loud, but how acquainted are you with bath salts?
