@ashfurrow TIL Quebec French is different to France French, because OF COURSE it would be
@ashfurrow There's a Transmetropolitan story where French is banned after a war, because corporate media properties use English:
@ashfurrow that province was in the news a few years ago for a horrible quadruple homicide while we were on vacation in the capital. The international headlines ran: "Police double murder in Canadian provincial capital"
The subject matter was terrible, but the reality that no one, anywhere, knows what New Brunswick or Fredricton are is hilarious.
@ashfurrow I guess now isn't the time or the place to repeat an old Jerry Sadowitz joke about Canada.
@ashfurrow You're hurting my Canadian centric feels.
@Lofenyy the only the the French hate more than everyone is each other

@ashfurrow No, Smarties and M&M's are different things. We have M&M's here in Canada too. Smarties are better though.
@rvk I know but do you expect the Americans to understand? They think Smarties are something else entirely.
@ashfurrow Now that Bladerunner's time becomes real life time, Elon Musk will unveil a Tesla "Cybertruck" that will look very simmilar to the vehicles in that movie.
