ITT: Fark tough guys brag about how they would have kept the money and Fark contrarians saying how keeping a $20 Canadian bill would land you PMITA prison.
 
2013-11-01 03:40:07 AM  
Sounds Canadian to me.

It was Canadian money, so, while nice, it's not like he was very much.

Needs more maple syrup being poured on Shania Twain, but otherwise, yeah, that's pretty Canadian, eh...

No mention of maple syrup, moose, poutine, beaver, milk in a bag, or French.

My favorite Canadian story was when there was a big hockey riot that was stopped when half of the rioters got the other half of the rioters to stop.

No mention of poutine, so not "most Canadian story ever."

The loonie and the dollar have been at parity for a while now. Remember the economic crisis? Your money is worth as much as ours, now.

Well, what do you think all that money was FOR?

Also, I find in interesting that (apparently) in Commomweath English the word "bar" has been generalized to mean any kind of retail establishment, as opposed to American English in which "bar" always refers to a place where alcoholic drinks are sold.

Thus, "gas bar" to mean "filling station" and "The Big Bang Burger Bar" if you don't feel like dressing up for a night at Milliways.

Captain Canada is waaay too polite. And I don't understand why he has to end every sentence with "eh." Also, there are reports that he refuses to throw his shield, since it's his poutine bowl.

"That poutine was delicious," said the Mountie. "My Kraft Dinner was lovely too," replied the beaver. They saw that they still had some time to spend before the hockey game, so they pulled on their denim jackets and went into the Mountie's car to go to Tim Horton's for a maple doughnut and some coffee. While the Mountie was distracted putting in an Anne Murray CD, a moose stepped out in front of the car. "Be careful of the moose!" said the beaver. "Thank you very much," replied the Mountie, cautiously manoeuvering the car out of the way.

"That reminds me somehow," said the beaver. "I need to buy a new opener for my milk bags but I'm a bit short. Can I borrow a Loonie?" "I'm not sure if I have it," the Mountie replied, adjusting his toque. "But I do have some Canadian Tire money, will that do?"

"C'est poutine était délicieux", a déclaré le gendarme. "Mon Dîner Kraft était belle aussi," répondit le castor. Ils ont vu qu'ils avaient encore un peu de temps à passer avant le match de hockey, alors ils tiré sur leurs vestes en denim et entra dans la voiture de la police montée pour aller au Tim Horton pour un beignet d'érable et un café. Alors que le gendarme a été distrait mettre dans un CD Anne Murray, un orignal est sorti en avant de la voiture. "Soyez prudent de l'orignal!" dit le castor. "Merci beaucoup," répondit le gendarme, manoeuvrer prudemment la voiture de la route.

"Cela me rappelle un peu", a déclaré le castor. «J'ai besoin d'acheter une nouvelle révélation pour mes sacs de lait, mais je suis un peu court. Puis-je emprunter un <<loonie>>?" "Je ne sais pas si je l'ai,» répondit le gendarme, en ajustant sa toque. "Mais j'ai un peu d'argent <<Canadian Tire>>, qui seront le faire?"

I've found a couple of lost wallets over the years... First one, when I was in college. I just dropped the wallet off at the student center (money and all) as they were able to contact the person who lost it. The second one I found on the sidewalk outside my gym. Figured someone dropped it coming in or out of the gym and I dropped it off at the front desk.

I just don't feel I should be profiting from someone else's misfortune and I'd like someone to do the same for me if I should ever lose my wallet.

Not Canadian. MAsshole.

i found someone's wallet.  I didn't have a car, so it was email based off unique name from student ID > match schedules > figure out meet drop off place (which involved me taking a half hour long bus). Guy (who to be fair did correctly ID the random crap in the wallet) grabbed it and left without a word.

Now if I find anything (have found two student IDs, a paycheck, and a worker college ID since) I just look up the best place Google can tell me and send it that way unless I've been told otherwise.

Not that I don't care, really, more that I'm too f--king tired of jerks.  I didn't want or expect a reward; however, knowing what the student cards cost to replace, a "thank you" would have sufficed.

RCMP said the tale of the airborne cash began shortly after the noon-hour when a motorist pulled into a gas bar in Emerald Park, just east of Regina.

So this Bentley rolls in to a gas bar and the gas bartender says "Why the long hood?"

or

This old VW Bug rolls in to a gas bar and says "Gas bartender, I want vone beer und a dozen glasses of vater.

Bartender says "Why do you want a dozen glasses of water?

I found a severed hand with a ring on it. It was a really nice ring too. I could have kept the ring and tossed the hand but no, I didn't want to profit from someone else's hand severing. I looked around for a while figuring I'd easily see someone with only one hand but after a couple of weeks, it was pretty obvious that I wasn't gonna find him. I could have kept the ring. It was almost falling off by now but I didn't. I slipped the hand with the ring in to a box and sent it to a police detective. I included a note that read: "You probably know whose hand this belongs to. It might be someone that you know."
