Oh Canada! Oh Canada!

So this morning I was in the liquor store to get, ermm… well, booze.
Yeah, yeah, I know I said morning. No, I’m not losing it, just that it
happened to be the most convenient time during the whole day. Anyway, so in
front of me there was this guy paying his drinks. The cashier goes: “are
you from England?”, the young man on the other side anwers: “No,
Canada actually.” To which to cashier responds: “Oh, no good…”
Now at this point I couldn’t stop myself from laughing out loud. I’ve
never seen a canadian guy so baffled. You should’ve seen his face: “What?
They’re actually making fun of me here? In Europe? What’s that all
about?” Of course what the clerk actually meant was: “Oh, my guess
was no good.” Go figure…

Dave if you’re reading this, you know we love you man. This one is for
you. In the meantime enjoy yourself at SXSW 2004. By the way, many congratulations
with the deserved awards for the CSS Zen Garden. Rock on!
