I finally saw a real live mounty



I was kind of disappointed that he wasn't wearing the red jacket and smokey bear hat. I thought they always dressed like that. Sad

The rights...  Reply with quote  

I have a feeling they aren't allowed, by law, to wear the uniform anymore. It might have something to do with it being a copyright violation after Canada sold the rights to the mountie image to Walt Disney. Confused

Seriously, you can still see them, but usually in parades, in parks or when the Prime Minister is doing some big to-do somewhere.

It's my pudding, thus, it's my cannon.

And NOBODY - ain't NOBODY - taking my pudding cannon away. You gave me the toy, now I get to play with it.

*sucks thumb, pouts, kicks rock, generally acts petulant*

I do not, as a rule, get pissy with newbies, mrschulze, so if I came across as a big nasty meanie, it's because Lauren made me do it. I'm not sure exactly how it's Lauren's fault, but it is.

So yes. Blame Lauren.

Carry on.

Heeeeeeeeeey!

*light dawns*

It's not LAUREN'S fault. It's Q's. He is the one, after all, who penned these rules. I think I like this idea: Blame Q.

Q DID IT!

Q penned the rules?  Reply with quote  

Q, penned the rules, I thought that it was Ken... or are there rules regarding the canon? Perhaps the pudding? Hmmmm, there is definitely a sordid web of slippery cheeks and tongues around here. I should have know C.Moore fans would have been wacky, not mean Smile

And here I was thinking all Q did was plagiarize E.L.Masters

That's right, Q wrote the rules (though the posting naked bit evidently came from our original Canadian, Paul R). He wrote them 2 or 3 boards back. Ken posted them for all newbies after they were retrieved from the archives.

Yeah, instead of singing "Blame Canada" when she sees the South Park movie, Hill sings "Blame Lauren". Doesn't sound quite the same, but y'know. But I think it should be obvious by now where the Powers of Good really reside between Hill and myself. Razz

Funny... I do recall our first encounter involving you threating to beat me with a large stick, Hillary...

*CU runs and hides behind Tal*

And what's this I hear about our anti-canadian comments being in jest???

Does this mean we have to start accepting them as our breathren???

Just the PC using Canadians, not the MAC users right???

At no point should any disparaging remarks ever be made about "Buffy,
The Vampire Slayer". That suck-ass piece of crap show is worshipped
around here.


Now I know I've read a Buffy reference or two in Moore's books! So I'm not sure about this rule. You can't deny it Moore.

thanks for the rules.

I'm glad I found you.

Yes, I did indeed pen the rule about posting naked. However I also penned a lot of other rules too. Rules that were ignored when Ken posted the official CM board rules. There is obviously an anti-Canadian bias here, I have felt it for years (It tickles the back of my throat). That is why Q's rules, as wonderful as they are, are the official ones, because he is a full-bloodied American chappie and not some pale, winter stunned Canuck. Whereas my rules are now on a placard outside a seedy Toronto strip joint ( and let me tell you folks, until you have been to a seedy Toronto strip club, you have not seen how low some people will sink for $40CDN.)

And for the record, the red Mounties uniform that Dudly Do-Right made famous is a dress uniform. Kinda like the Marine uniform in all those commercials featuring those chisel-jawed young men.

*With a pervy gleam in his eye, CU innocently asks* Just how low will they sink?

*Kitty chimes in* They're Canadians, how much lower can they sink?

*CU* Now, now, be nice to our friends to the north.

*Kitty* Shut up, you perv.

*CU, indignantly, with nose in the air* I am not a perv. Now if you will excuse me, I need to run down to the exchange bank and get some Canadian money.
