Default While the Americans are in a turkey coma...

....its our chance to run amok on the boards for a couple of days (well, along with the brits, aussies, and the rest of the world). So I'm throwing out this challenge to my fellow canucks: on Thur Nov 27 or Fri Nov 28, while our southern neighbours are busy digesting and shopping, contribute to a thread that normally you wouldn't. Let's try to spread a touch more Canadiana for a couple of days

I got the funniest visuals, reading this. I was reminded of when the parents are away and the kids get to take over the house.

And I thought of Bob Rae when he became Premier of Ontario (just like the kid whose parents are away...."here Bob, I've left you $100 for groceries, that should be enough"...and they come back to see a hole in the ground where the house used to be).

A touch of Canadiana, you say? Let's run around posting images of moose, igloos, lumberjacks, Canada geese, maple syrup and beavers then, haha.

Good idea, let's see who's not turkeyed-out...

"Beaver Shot" coming up...I'll find some random thread in The Lounge and post it...

HAHAHA.
I find the President's Choice post hysterical. It's such a staple brand in so many Canadian homes! (By the way, I do agree with you... the President's Choice cookies are indeed the greatest storebought brand around!)

One thing I love so much about Canadian humour is that we can be amused by the fact that we're the butt of jokes. Often Canadian humour entails exposing how little other countries know about ours, and laughing about it... but in reality that still renders us the butt, doesn't it?
Haha
I love this country.

Excellent work everyone! Let's regroup and get ready...Washington's Birthday will be here before you know it. We will strike again then! Unless of course you all want to save it up for a major Arbor Day offensive. I'm available on both of those days myself...

Help out Operation Canuck Amok!

The Canadian Trivia Game in the Lounge is all out of questions!

Think up something relating to Canada, and put it into a question...be careful to word it in such a way that makes it difficult to 'google' the answer!

No turkey coma for us, we're doing home made spaghetti this year. We could end up in carb-comas, I guess.

I admit that when I posted this originally, way back when, I didn't post to all the non-American boards....but I did at least acknowledge that you all are also turkey-coma-free!

Please feel free to run amok to your hears content.....of course you are free to do that at any time

ETA: I just realized that, except for the paysite board, there isn't really much of this site that I don't post in occasionally, so it is a little hard for me to post somewhere that I normally wouldn't!

And we are exposed to enough American media to get fully saturated by American thanksgiving furor! So, kind of like the John Candy character in "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" we don't have anywhere to go this Thursday (except work and school), but we are kind of along for the ride and they can't get rid of us....
