Yeah, fark has an automatic spamblock so that you can't just C&P, but it's my username [at symbol] ultrafark [dot]com. But anyway, cheers, my pleasure.

Oh man, this flows like a theOnion report, I love it. I'm glad this is about as severe a crime as we get around here.

I wish these news stories were the norm for where I live. Shooting, shooting, theft, shooting, break in.

There go those whacky Canadian Cops again, advertising for grocery stores and home phones. I'm so glad they're managing those 1st time chip offenders!

I saw this yesterday and it was so ridiculous that I was thinking either Canada must be the most boring country in the world or this is viral marketing for the chip brand.

Apparently, its the former.

That town name is suspiciously Lovecraftian sounding.

I wonder what horrors lie in it.

Heh.

Oh that's where you're wrong. Canada isn't boring. Just last week, we had three squirrels run through our back yard.

It's not news, it's CTV
 
2012-07-10 06:57:57 PM
I can't believe someone called the cops about some drunk chicks stealing a bag of chips she basically left outside.

Even the cop thinks it's ridiculous, yet the tv station still manages to try to make it ominous.

Awesome.

Came for the UVic Hotties wet with "chip grease", left dissapoint !

You know, I haven't tried them. Canadians take chips farking seriously, and for me it's Old Dutch all the way.

I grew up in Saanich, and live there still. I keep my chips under lock and key!

Oh, upper-middle class white suburbia. Heaven most of the time, but when something goes wrong it really goes wrong.

I was interested in how this area could be so wonderfully boring, and the demographics are interesting.
In 2001, the highest denomination is "no religious affiliation" at 35%, compared to Canada's overall 16.5%
25.8% minority population, 20.5% Asian.
More Sikhs than Jews and Muslims combined.

You guys think this is funny, but chip theft may lead to more serious crimes, like poutine pilfering or gravy siphoning.

Do you guys not have Zellers in the States? It's more like an even poorer man's Walmart than a grocery store.

Next you'll be telling me you don't have poutine and ketchup chips either...
