good morning! no funny photo today, instead I recommend checking out Letterkenny: a Canadian comedy show.
no other piece of art has so perfectly captured Canada's unique prudishness – the raw suppression of and incuriosity about sexuality – than this 3 minute sketch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q47Uq96lILA
good morning, the “I know nothing else” bird is trying to break into standup
@ashfurrow, no. no, Ash.
@ashfurrow Goku squarepants?
@ashfurrow That looks pretty darned good. ☕️
@ashfurrow N I C E
@bclindner 🙇 I’ve lived here nearly five years and finally walked across one of the bridges yesterday
@ashfurrow: offfff; what an amazing picture AND view <3
@ashfurrow If I applied that to my hate of Microsoft I would slip into hyperspace. :)
@ashfurrow I was obsessed with that movie as a kid. I love the Power Glove marketing.
@ashfurrow The NDP, to quote another Canadian, is not very evenly distributed. Although there is a candidate in my riding, I haven't seen any evidence of campaigning (e.g. no lawn signs). Supposedly it's a 3 way race between the Trudeaus, the Harpers, and the Greens. So, bad news that think the greens are actually re-incarnated Progressive Conservatives, and good news for those that think that's not such a bad thing.
@bremner I've heard that the NDP has been pretty bad at campaigning :\
@ashfurrow dear God
@toast gosh I dunno, maybe it’s regional? New Brunswick always used neighbour. What about “honour”? Do you keep the u?
@toast language is so tricky. A lot of spelling tests growing up had multiple correct answers 😅
@ashfurrow petition to just start writing everything in IPA
@ashfurrow L'orthographie de français, est-ce que c'est mieux stabilisée ou non ?
@dasyatidprime je ne sais pas, mais les deux langues sont tellement mixed up dans Canada, donc c’est impossible to say for sure.
@ashfurrow: not to mention color/colour, whiskey/whisky, etc
@ashfurrow Typoegraphy is a mood.
@vollink I saw that this morning, and was like, "uh, FUCK, mmm"
@ashfurrow I'm sure it was on purpose, wink.
@ashfurrow Is his name "Bones" McCoy?
@mdhughes not sure! i'll ask
@ashfurrow Humor is a prison for oneself, standup is a prison for others.
