When I was but a lad we used to scour the forest at the end of our street for fire wood (we heated half the house with a wood-stove). My father had an ancient electric chainsaw that had NO brake or guard - which I was expected to use - at the age of ten.

I was scared sh*tless of that thing and to this day I use a chainsaw with extreme trepidation. I'm pretty reckless with an axe or hatchet.

At first I was all 'This is cool!', then I remember what 1940's had for chainsaws.  There is reason why this was abandoned, the machines weighed three times as much as today's chainsaws, half the power of today's machines and would never start on the first pull.  In fact, unless the saw is already warm it'll never start on the first pull, no automatic choke.  You were lucky if the thing would start in less than two minutes.  Tell a nazi, 'hold that thought while I start this thing'.

I lived on my uncle's farm for a few months and he had two of my grandfather's chainsaws from that era.  It took forever waiting on him and my cousin to chop up a log so the rest of us could split and load the wood.  They took both machines out because they never knew which machine would run.  I have a Poulan (just a decent machine) that makes those old machines look like very heavy toys.

I don't know what Uncyclopedia's current status vs. Wikia is, but there's also Uncyclopedia at As far as I know, the community may be divided as to which is the "real" Uncyclopedia. I will say, however, that Wikia tends to dislike when wikis try to leave, and will keep the "old" wiki around, no matter how disused it gets.

....yeah, so why are the French Canadians still here?

Because of all the straight people having cheese and wine consuming gay babies in Canada with their sinful lifestyle choices?

Hey subby, you could have made a joke in the headline like:

The Germans did Nazi that coming'.

But instead you said the Germans did not see that coming.

Just a helpful hint for the future so you don't miss such opportunities.
