This commercial has been running on one of the sports channels, so I see it all the time when I watch baseball. It is so goddamned dorky that it's finally won me over.
I've been known to knock back a few milk stouts while playing softball. I don't think I've had a glass of straight milk though since my early 20s

Yeah, I can't remember the last time I had a glass of milk. I have cereal for breakfast every morning, so that's my milk for the day (plus cream milk in my coffee).

Canada, home of Jefferson Davis
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

No, that's Robert E. "Geddy" Lee. It's Jefferson "Celine" Davis.

I have never ever ever never never ever heard it called anything but kickball. As far as I'm concerned central and eastern Canada has forfeited all legitimacy over this.

I find it hard to believe. Although I can imagine my Canadian cousins saying that along with the other goofy things they used to say.

There's always regionalisms, but they're usually semi-comprehensible. Soccer baseball makes no goddamned sense at all. How would that catch on when the more sensible term kickball was in circulation and free for use?

So, do you call a hoodie a "bunnyhug"?

EDIT: the most annoying one for me (other than "pencil crayons") was learning half of Canada says poster board and half says Bristol board, because speaking as an artist, those are two different things.
