And then there's the Acadian delight, Poutine Râpée. It consists of a lump of vulcanized pork fat, wrapped in a shell, Scotch Egg-style, made from a mix of mashed potato and finely grated raw potato. One boils the crap out of it until it looks like a grey, glutinous, irregularly shaped dumpling. Google can be your friend if you want to see pictures of the things. God knows why you'd want to, though.

Mrs Coe calls them snot balls, with good reason.

Just out of curiosity, why?

If it's none of my business, no problem.

Con, haven't you heard? We've banned all pork products in Canada.

Good friend of mine (not Jewish as far as I know does not eat it)

We don't drink together as well, with varying results.

Canada, home of the Martin Mars water bombers

Though manufactured in the US, possession is 9/10 of the law and they've been based in Canada and fighting fires in both Canada and the US for 49 years. (The Hawaii Mars is currently on loan to the US Forest Service.) It was always a thrill to see them in action during summer vacations at Sproat Lake, BC lots of years ago.

You can't go wrong relying on the judgement of P J O'Rourke, c. 1976:


Hard to tell a Canadian from an extremely boring regular white person unless he's dressed to go outdoors. Very little is known of the Canadian country since it is rarely visited by anyone but the Queen and illiterate sport fishermen. It is thought to resemble a sort of arctic Nebraska. It's reported that Canadians keep pet French people. If true, this is their only interesting trait. At any rate, they are apparently able to train Frenchmen to play hockey, which is more than any European has ever been able to do.

An Example of Canadian Repartee:
Two Canadians are talking in a bar. One Canadian says, "Who was that lady I saw you with last night?"
"That was my wife." replies the other.

Another Canadian. James Doohan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia We were training our actors in space years ahead of the Americans.

Beaver recipe tips: Proper preparation is very important to enjoying a good beaver. It is vital to shave the beaver before eating it. There is nothing so distracting as to get a beaver hair in your mouth while trying to enjoy eating your beaver. Beaver is best served both warm and moist for the best flavour and texture…

In this scheme of things....we are a rock.
In some ways yes. Great geography and resources, good food, clean water (Ont. Que. excepted), relatively safe, reasonably productive work force, good infrastructure and transportation, excellent banking system, at times inventive.

In other ways we are a pebble. Prior to the 50's we punched above our own weight around the world then the decline started and moved fast. We hid under the back porch of America all through the cold war era letting them do all the heavy lifting. The Trudeau/Chretien reign decimated the military to "balance" their budget. We ran away from east Africa with our tails between our legs. Our miitary was so small and weak we could have been invaded by a country as small as Iceland.

We are finally showing some cojones in Afghanistan. Let's hope that continues and we may regain some influence in world affairs.

Apparently you lot are racist too... according to that racist mob the ANC.

The ruling ANC on Tuesday condemned a Canadian decision to give a white South African refugee status from the crime-ridden country, rejecting it as "racist", "sensationalist" and "alarming".

"The African National Congress views the granting by Canada of a refugee status to South African citizen Brandon Huntley on the grounds that Africans would 'persecute' him, as racist," it said in a statement.

"We find the claim by Huntley to have been attacked seven times by Africans due his skin colour 'without any police intervention' sensational and alarming.
Don't know if it belongs here, the South African Politcs Hamster Wheel or both

Reasonable Canucks

I think you were right to put this in the Canadian thread. It says more about Canadian tolerance and consistency as well as his ex South African lawyer Russell Kaplan's abilities than it does about SA.

I must admit that I don't recognise a situation in Cape Town yet that would warrant an appeal for refugee status anywhere but to those South Africans who dismiss this guy as a complete idiot or a chancer I say that he has established a good precedent for which many might be grateful one day.

I certainly agree that in certain rural areas you are far more at risk than in Cape Town given the long history of violence and murder.

Hell I am ruining this pleasant civilised Canadian enclave with this miserable SA tale.
