A/J .....I envisioned a very graphic picture that immediately had me in tears thinking of the that old joke about the guy in the line at Costco with a big bag of Dog food and answering a query about "owning a dog" with that dog food diet story and it's punch line of the him getting hit by a bus while......

It's not really that intelligent, but thanks for the assumption.

Basically the guy sounds like his single greatest thrill would be if he could blow himself.

I knew I'd gotten it right!

Punch line to that old joke " I stopped in the middle of the street to lick myself and got run over by a bus"

"Bringed" What's up with that?
BruSan, I would love to see you create some threads in error free French. I don't think you appreciate how hard it is to learn flawless English when your home language is French.

The point aside, the OP is a troll, along with all the other asinine threads started/revived today. That was the bigger point.

But here's a Wahmbulance for your hurt feelings;

Classy move, Mikey. I don't know if the OP is a troll or not as you claim, but I'm even more unsure why you are posting a picture of an ambulance and claiming that I have hurt feelings. Hurt feelings about what? It seems like this forum has really deteriorated into a back and forth slamfest.

See right there is a clue; I am well aware of my limitations so do not pretend. What makes you so sure he's even a Canadian much less a French Canadian? Declare his country of origin in his profile did he? Now at post 17 and HIS topic about the Laurentian consensus was so important to him he's not been back since.

I'm not being critical of you, but if you look at the posts over the past week all we've had is garbage instigation about "hoser" culture, and other topics soley made to rile people up. Of course being the good Canadians, we're all polite about it, and people are sincerely trying to answer asinine comments.

It's time to stop giving these idiots an audience, and your comment to BruSan is exactly the kind of response they want.

Apologies for my coming across like a butt.

I've reread the posts made by Étienne Gauthier. Nothing there tips me off that he might not be a francophone from Montreal.
