Residents of a north-end Hamilton neighbourhood are struggling to understand how a woman and her six children lived with the body of her dead husband and father in their home for months.

So that is two dead bodies in the house? Starting to look like a pattern...

The answer was that it was in Hamilton, and that they couldn't smell the body over the smell of Hamilton.

The whole city has been doing a collective W...T....F about this all week.  If you've never been to Hamilton in the summer, it's hot, it's sticky humid (stuck in the dead air between the escarpment and the lake), and most of those houses in the North end are over 120 years old, air conditioning is rare.  How they lived there with a dead rotting body is beyond understanding.  And why has no one been charged?  I'm pretty sure it's at least child endangerment to have them living with a corpse.

THIS! So much this.
Passed through last month.
Took 20 minutes to get the smell out of the car.

Going to pass through this afternoon on the QEW.   "Windows up!"

Sometimes I have to go there for work and I hate every minute of it.  Does anyone there work?  And does everyone have a tapout hat or wifebeater with spaghetti stains on it?

You can tell the family was perfectly normal by the guy's van parked out front.

Oh, it's the hate hamilton thread!

It wouldn't stink on the Burlington St. stretch if we weren't working.  :)  And you should stop for a canoli at Frank's Sicilian bakery, or pick up some porchetta at Nardini's while you're here, torradan!  Might change your mind.

Or, maybe pull off the QEW and drive two minutes, park at Lawrence and the Red Hill and take a bit of a walk up the creek trail to Mount Albion falls (oh, right, it'll take awhile, since you can hike in the woods from one end of the city to the other on various trails, including the Bruce).  Or head down to James St and check out one of the most vibrant new art and food communities you'll find in the Golden Horseshoe.

Yeah, we're a blue collar city, and that old limestone has sucked up a lot of bad air over the years, and there are a lot of people homeless and hurting and mentally ill.  I've been to downtown Toronto, the only difference between you and us is a lot more people and a lot more space.

Came for the Weekend at Bernie's reference.  Leaving disappointed.

Oh, Hamilton, or as us Canadians call it: Cleveland North.

New tourism slogan for Toronto should be "We may have a fat ugly mayor, but at least we're not Hamilton".

Ask most people in Ontario: They'd agree that yogourt has more culture than Hamilton.

Pretty sure they mean the woman's husband and the children's father.  Not two bodies.  Just the family patriarch.   Awkwardly-worded though.  :P

Wack-load
I do not think that word means what I think it means.

Show me on the doll where Hamilton touched you

Yeah, I suspect a Wack-load isn't very much-- depending on how horny the guy is and how long since he last wacked.  That said, it couldn't be much more than a tablespoon or so.  Google search indicates the average is between 3 and 5mL

/Annnd, now I have that search phrase in my history.

And just last night I was complaining about the chicken scraps left in the outdoor garbage bin. How can anyone live like that?

I rode my bike into Hamilton as a kid. When I got home I was covered in black soot from the steel mills.
But the RBG and Cootes Paradise are nice.

Dammit, don't judge Hamilton based on what happens on Barton Street!

That's like getting your information about Brooklyn from Spike Lee movies.

Can't we link to some nice, heartwarming stories about Hamilton, like "Aberdeen Street Residents Hold Fundraiser For Local Opera Organization", "Hamilton Serbian Club To Donate Old, Pee-Stained Mattresses to Croatian Orphanages", "Westdale Neighbourhood Association To Give Black Residents The Vote", or "Aberdeen Street Women's Shelter To Become New Opera Venue"?

//I may have been born in Hamilton, but I'm no stranger to love. I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling.
