Trying to snuff out the false alarms, Kay said he called around to get the log video replaced.

"Maybe some snowflakes or Santa or something like that," he said.



"Hello, 911? There's a lot of snow falling inside Mosaic Stadium. I'm afraid that the roof is going to collapse or something, please send help!"

I'll bet all people that called were scared that all those championship banners the Roughriders won would catch on fire and they would never be able to put it out.

I was going to make fun of these people, but the more I look at the picture, it really does seem as if the stadium is on fire. If I were driving by without having a chance look twice, I might be convinced to call 911, too.

Can't get TOO upset. At 55mph, night time, anything might happen.

Will a limerick suffice?



I dated a girl from Regina
She had a vivacious patina
If I had one complaint-
(and I'm showing restraint)
Twas her odd urge to scream "weena!"

Turn on the local weather channel. The stadium will disappear.

I remember in [the book] Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, HST was contemplating the big monitor outside one of the casinos, where they would project your face and whatever you say for 50 cents. He was wary of someone using it to blurt out some profane nonsense and scare people trying to maintain.

vaguely related.

Oh come on. How can you possibly expect people to come up with a limerick when you pronounce it that way? Let's try and be realistic here.

The consolation is he's probably an Eskies fan and dispite the ample row of championship banners, they're a bit of a cluster fark lately.

Heh -


I dated a girl from Regina -
whose brains had long traveled to China.
I asked for some head,
she pointed and said,
you dumbass it's called a vagina!

Gotta love Canadia. Fire! Panic! Chaos! Oh, and this:

The problem was, from a distance some people thought the stadium was on fire - there were four frantic calls to 911 in the past few weeks.

FOUR?!? In the past few WEEKS?!??!

How laid-back can you be?

Well 1) The playoffs have been over for the Riders for a few weeks now and 2) They are already committed to building a new stadium so it's all good!

Not to mention having two football teams with (essentially) the same name in a league of less than 10 teams. "Yeah, whatever. Just relax, put on some Rush and don't worry about it." should be the national motto.

I appreciate the effort, and besides, if you've never heard the town name spoken out loud why the hell would you think it would rhyme with 'vagina'?

Not necessarily a different girl - she was pretty loose.

Once dated a circus headliner
She laughed at that trick
Where he'd stand on his prick
Though she wanted it in her vagina

Well y'know, not for about 16 years now. Not to mention just previous to that there were a few more teams in the league. So yeah, your argument is still very current and valid.
