  • Hey, kids!

    Good show. Thanks for playing Geoff Smith. I like him and enjoy his bumpers, too.

    I have always been of the mind that intros should be only long enough to uniquely identify your "brand". I like having a short intro and outro that form the parenthesis around the content and to not waste time and bandwidth on some extravegant production.

    The use of many French terms, like serviette for napkin, courgette for zucchini, aubergine for eggplant, are not from your cousines Quebecquois, but rather from British usage.

    As far as political goes, I guess I am as incapable of not drawing political parallels as your guys are of not saying "sorry" every other minute :-) (although I think you hit a record low this time, so maybe there is hope for me, too.)

    Here is a topic for next time: The Winter Olympics; American jingoism overshadows the celebration of athletic competition. US tv networks basically only show an event when the US is in the competition rather than showcasing the best matchups. This strikes me as poor sportspersonship and adds to the impression that the US is arrogant and self-absorbed.

    I hope you can track down Target Mindy and get the backstory on her.

    All the best!

  • Hey John,

    You are correct Sir! The words were brought to Canada from the Brits, however they are still french words. I didn't say we use them because of our Quebecquois population, all I mentioned was that they are French words.

    You are so right about the American coverage of the Olympics! I love watching the Olympics but am hard pressed to see any action that doesn't involve and American athlete.

    Damn dude, you should be a fact checker, ha ha "sorry" ;)

    Thanks for listening mon ami!

  • interesting serviette/napkin fact:
    napkin is traditionally used by the upper-class(es), serviette by the working class (trying to use a French term to seem posh, you see)...everyone I know says serviette, so that tells you all you need to know about me! ;)

    great show guys xx

  • Diane, that is hilarious. I guess only the British riff raff hightailed it to Canada bringing their "posh" talk with them, haha. Oh, and you're in good company as I also run with the "serviette" crowd.

  • In high school, we called the guys with the heavy metal T-shirts and Trans Ams (that's pronounced "Traynz Aymz") "burnouts."

    Another awesome show, guys. And glad our little olive branch helped bring our countries closer together!

  • I often like to sit on the chesterfield while I eat. It's important to have plenty of serviettes at hand.

  • Okay - I have a question. Rather than bias the "experiment" by saying what I'm noticing here in Ontario, do the two of you pronounce asphalt differently?

  • 60?!! That's right, you worked out how to insult me. Mind you, everyone will think I look great for my age. How old am I really? Doo doo doo diddly doo, Ask Lyndon.
