Good one subby! And I'm Canadian.

There's a medal for fourth?

Holy shiat that headline made me laugh. Well done, subby. A +1 from me

We got gold medals in hockey.

Canada did take home more gold than we did last time, by the way. In fact, the only reason we beat them on points is (wait for it...) all the bronze medals we scored.

The Canadian in the next cube asked me what was so funny. Just a headline.
Then I read it slowly. He got all excited at first then the zinger came.
He's weeping in his timmy's now.

We're taking about the REAL Olympics, not the one that caters to "sports" loved only by this guy because they require a trust fund to participate in:

Fourth place is the Maple medal - we excel in that one.

Bronze is used to make those funeral urns that people keep swiping.  Serious money.

Plus, the Canadians took gold in the only two sports that count, namely men's ice hockey and women's curling.

Good headline  +1 subby.  Had to re-read the headline at first i thought it said bronze statue, not bronze age.

12 inches long... 2 inches wide and carved from bone with a head on the end of a slender shaft?

that aint not statue... that a dildo!

seriously fark how am I the first to point this out.  what the fark is wrong with you

Don't worry about that clicking noise you will hear on your phone from now on...I am sure it's just a bad connection.

Wait, I thought Dr. Putin was supposed to find archaeological treasures?  Amirite?
 
2014-05-27 11:18:43 AM  
shiat it could be made of clay and still be worth a pretty penny, I mean its 4,000 years old. I bet selling the statue makes comrade fisherman there rich enough to say "fark fishing" and he can spend the rest of his days swilling vodka.
 
2014-05-27 11:19:04 AM  
Except it was carved out of horn... not bronze... and Canuckers do win quite a bit of gold and silver at the Olympics especially considering their population... but despite the spine dislocating stretches it was a decent headline... I guess... kind of... whatevers.

It appears Nikolay Tarasov  donated it to Tisul History Museum. Kudos, Mr. Tarasov!

And also kudos to subby who built a carefully-crafted headline that proves he RTFA.

Back on topic: bronze is a lovely metal. Most people cast it, which is nice, but when I was doing metalwork I liked working with sheets.

Mmmmm... copper and tin...

True Story:

In the 2002 Winter Olympics, the final game came down to U.S. vs Canada. We had a Canadian on our team, and in a fit of national pride, I bet him 50 bucks my team would win. Of course, Canada won. As I paid him his due, he told me "Dude...never bet against Canada in hockey. We grow those motherfarkers in labs"

Yep, kinda my point. Every time you poke fun at Canada, there's a little smile, then they just gotta say how good they are about X or Y. Some of the most nationalistic folks I know- even perhaps a touch more than their arch-nemesis to the south, if only by a metric hair.
