Ghastly: Have you been to the stampede yet? Really? That's the phrase that made you piss your pants and weep like a schoolgirl looking at her first cock and curl up in a fetal ball of fear wishing you had your firearm to bring some semblance of manhood back to your person?

This guy has got to be the shiattiest cop in the world.


Officer Bubbles disagrees.

blueviking: Bill_Wick's_Friend: As a Canadian travelling through the USA I have encountered more than a few men like this in the past week.

I can't help it. My natural inclination is to say "hey, howzit goin'?" when I pass a stranger on the street or at least to say "hi". I keep reminding myself not to do it but it just comes out automatically. The typical response seems to be "don't make eye contact and move away".

I wish I could, but there's whisky and pork calling my name in Tennessee and Kentucky and I've already "wasted" too much time in WA, ID, MT, WY and SD. Going to take I-27 south as soon as I'm in Sioux Falls, SD and try to get as close to the Mason-Dixon line as I can tomorrow.

"Wasted" is in quotes because I'm having the best time and I've seen some amazing beautiful things.

Amper: Hold on, I had to use Google Translate between American and Canadian to understand the article properly. Here goes:

I recently visited a better place in the world, coming from practically the worst place in the world. As a power hungry control freak for 20 years, it feels strange not to carry my prosthetic manhood everywhere I go. Many would say I have no need to carry one in a place that actually has its shiat together.

Yet the police cannot protect everyone all the time, particularly when I don't have my stable of armed bullies to back me up. A man should be al-lowed to protect himself if the need arises, and should look for any excuse, no matter how benign, to overreact obscenely. The need for dramatic hyperbole arose immediately after I was scared by someone trying to talk to me in a park, forcing me to make an acrobatic leap to conclusions, and speculate about the worst of humanity within my soul and projecting it on others around me instead. Just as it had in a theatre in Aurora, Colo., as well as a college campus in Canada - I'll conveniently overlook the fact that the obscenely overreacting stains on the taint of society were the ones brandishing weapons in the first place.

Recently, while out for a walk in a place that looks like this, in broad daylight on a paved trail, two young men approached my wife and me and must have been among the absolute worst, hardened criminal scum because if you're going to commit a crime, doing it in plain view of everyone else only proves they had the worst of motives. The men stepped in front of us, then made a completely innocuous statement which I had to interpret as aggressive so I'd have a story to tell back home about how bad socialism worked out for those commie frenchies across the border.

We ignored them. The two moved closer, repeating themselves, because only horrible people outright refuse to acknowledge others.

I quickly moved between these two and my wife, trying to inflate both my chest and testicles, repl ...

Hmmm, people in Hastings must be farkin' arseholes, then. My dad grew up there, and, under unfortunate circumstances for the Old People (they were living the good life in Las Cruces, NM, and my dad hates cold), had to move back. One of the reasons he and mum enjoyed visiting me in Texas was, while on their walks, people actually responded when they said "how ya doin'?" and didn't even give them the stinkeye.

noblewolf: Surool: Awwww. Did the poor little guy feel naked without his penis substitute?

This amuses me, because I'm sure your one of the people who say only Police should have guns. And this was a police offer, just not from Canada. So what is your farking issue? Is he just not qualified to protect himself and others in Canada?

/fricken retard


It amuses me, because I didn't say any of that? I think he's a tool because he feels so easily threatened when he doesn't have a gun on him. I don't think only the police should have guns, and that isn't what this article is about. I know you get tired waiting for somebody to say the right thing to unleash your pre-packaged anti-gun control script, but next time wait until your response is somewhat appropriate. Also find somebody who wants to put more restrictions on guns.

I'm real, just lurky. Never bothered putting a profile together - did that once but forgot the credentials to the account after a long spell of infarktivity. Thanks for pointing it out though, I probably should fill it out a little.

Just to know someone's laughing is enough, (you too, gordian.). I see no TF tag by your name though, so treat yourself in my honor. ;)

Most of us walk around knowing that we are vulnerable, even civilians that carry around a gun better have a good reason to use it.

The officer is in Canada where he can't carry a gun, and his title doesn't carry as much weight up north either.

I bet if he was involved in a shooting in the states off-duty, I wonder who's version would be given more weight.

He is letting us know that it sucks to be just another sap that could die if you meet up with the wrong sort of person.

It sucks to live in fear of those that have temporary arbitrary control over you, doesn't it officer?

I really, really hope this is satire. If Cowboy Wally there is legit then this is a very sad story indeed. I am from the Prairies, and people do walk up to you and start conversations out of nowhere just to be friendly. People do it in Toronto, too. I am often quizzed about my Android tablet by strangers who want to know whether it's the blackberry tablet or a Kindle or a sawed off iPad. Do I think "These people are talking to me! I NEED A GUN!!!1!"
Do I HELL, I talk right back because it gives me a chance to get on my high horse and go for a gallop. The thought that Cowboy Wally is so high strung that he assumes that strangers talking to him=imminent death, as well as the fact that he clearly thinks the best way to deal with this situation is to open fire makes me think there's no hope for us. Especially us Canadians, living above the US is like living in a two story house where the first floor is rented to a man who spends most of his time polishing a shotgun and muttering "Soon...soon..."

Bungles: If he's not real, it's very long and well made hoax indeed.


I think that the fact that he's a cop probably colors his impression of the encounter. He's not used to being treated like an 'average' person; everybody in town knows he's a cop and acts accordingly.

rynthetyn: I know two things about Calgary. The first is that their female hockey fans, or at least the ones who will drive/fly cross country to see the Stanley Cup Finals, all have massive fake boobs and a penchant for wearing small shirts, and the second is that the Stampede is a big gigantic deal.


It's Canadian NASCAR, and yes its just as embarrassing.

whatshisname: I quickly moved between these two and my wife, replying, "Gentle-men, I have no need to talk with you, goodbye." They looked bewildered, and we then walked past them.

Let's see, 2 drunk kids trying to chat up some strangers. The strangers go all weird, so the kids look bewildered and carry on. Yeah, sounds like firearms were needed.


This. If the two kids were up to no good (e.g. mug them) then the perfect time would have been while the guy was walking past them or when he had his back to them. If it was going to be a "hold up" then they would have had their weapons out either when they approached or just after they asked their first question. I am betting that they were just drunk and overly friendly.
