    What is the deal with all the Canadians on e-bay wanting to get paid in US$? Is your money not good at home?

    I've got a slogan for you: Canada-its the new Mexico!:haha: :flipoff2:

    He already said he was leaving for the weekend. By the time he gets back this will be buried in pads and toolboxes:D

    ...and I didn't say "New Mexico" I said "the new Mexico";) They already have great strippers, now they won't take their own money. Quick, someone build a fence.

    Howdy ho, neighbors..........:whistle:

    Actually, Canada was really striving to be the new Georgia, but it was too hard to say "eh" in that thick Southern drawl. :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Plus your beer sucks. :yikes: :wink1:

    I don't bother with a flapper hat. I usually just wear a balaclava. You're just jealous that you don't work outside in the cold and get to buy all the awesome cold-weather gear that I do.......:tongue1:

    I'll be sneaking across the border for work this summer, I hear the ice picking pays well.

    Any tips on speaking Mush Mouth or skin bleaching? I need to blend in.

    Well people need ice for their drinks. So you have these cultivated fields of ice. You walk up and down the rows and pick ice, throwing it in a boxed snow cat.

    The best way to reproduce the Canadian accent is to stuff your mouth with taffy and peanut butter then sing the Titanic theme song.
