A Guide To Canadian Coins

The penny is brown. It looks like a little piece of rust. If you’ve gotten them back in your change, you know they also smell like cold shit. The penny has a maple leaf branch on it and, if I’m seeing it correctly, the shadow on the bottom of the branch indicates it has been severed from the tree.
Awesome. First up in Canadian currency: dead plants.

Snuggies Are Soooo Yesterday.

A couple months ago, I wrote a blog on how ridiculous the Snuggie is (check it out.) I didn't think fashion retardation could be topped after that.

I was wrong. What could be better than looking like you're in a cult, you ask? Just take a shot in the dark. Did you say a dress that fits over your couch?

Important News Today

I read the Metro on the way in to work this morning. Thought I'd share some of the important news. (Quotes are from the paper.)

Fast & Furious returns

I'm kind of excited to see this, if only for the fact that they brought the original cast back (except Jesse, that guy was totally gunned down by Johnny Tran.)

Recession Jobs: Stripper

If you're feeling the effects of this recession and are looking for a job, I caught this stripper job fair on CNN the other day.

They say they're looking to fill around 30 positions, from strippers and waitresses to disc jockeys and bartenders

The CNN reporter said they were also looking for 'back of the house staff'. To which the news anchor giggled and said, “I don’t know what that means.”

Ladders while you wait.

Here's a little-known fact: I worked at Wal Mart in high school, and all through college. Actually, probably a well-known fact. Especially to my family, friends and anyone who just read that sentence (If you jumped into this story mid-paragraph, you totally missed the set-up.)

More Shitty Facebook Ads

Months ago, I wrote about facebook ads that pissed me off. Luckily, they keep getting worse and supplying me with more content. Enjoy.

My Epic Tax Tale

I decided to get my taxes done last Saturday. I go to H&R Block, I go, "Do I need an appointment?" She says no. I go, "Okay, I want to just do a simple refund," and pull out my papers. She goes, "well, there are two people ahead of you. Do you want to come back around 5:00? I can take your name." I'm like, "Isn't that an appointment?" That’s 1.

7 Things People Like Getting Their Pictures With


They can’t help but smugly point out that they’re sober enough to enjoy the humour of the situation but drunk enough to act like an asshole about it.

Come Get My Maxims

The past two times I've moved, I've had a couple boxes of Maxim/Stuff magazines that I collected. Why the hell would I keep these? Maybe I thought they would be worth something. Maybe I couldn't bear to part with something I invested so much time and money in. Or maybe I thought I might re-read them someday. But now the boxes just sit in my room taking up space and it's annoying the hell out of me. Who am I kidding? I don't need these anymore.

Cape Breton Loves the McDonalds Turkey BLT

Who remembers this commercial?

This commercial was shot in Cape Breton and features local yokels waxing delicious about the new McDonald’s deli sandwiches. Take a good look at this kid.

Cosmo, KFC & Oreos.

I was reading Cosmo this past weekend when I was visiting my parents (fuck you, I read Cosmo sometimes) and they had this article called How To Stretch Your Clothes.
