Have you ever been there?
The little swipe hustlers disable all the machines (there are like 7-8 of them) and then sell swipes to the unsuspecting WTC Hole In the Ground European “Oh, i’m loving NY now that the dollar is garbage and I can buy everything here cheap” Gawkers.

Damn, can you imagine, your entry to heaven stalled by some kid who jammed up the metrocard machine.

Keep up the good work Bernie

This comic Is Rockin! My fiance also thinks it’s stupid, which I don’t get because she laughs at my comic That has clowns juggling aborted fetuses in it and much more vulgar stuff in it.

Hail to the ALP baby!

I don’t get why she doesn’t get it. I get it. I’m a girl. Though, sometimes I don’t get the NY humour because I’m in Canadia. Eh.

On This Hour Has Twenty-Two Minutes, Rick Mercer did this part of the show called Talking To Americans. It’s funny, because he goes and asks americans questions as though it’s a poll. For example…

For two months out of every year we have complete darkness in Canada. Should it be called the Canadark, the Equinox, or the something I can’t remember…

He also told americans that canadians put old people on ice floes and shove them out to sea… And that we hunt caribou (reindeer) with timbits… And something about Peter Mansbridge… Kinda funny… But I think they only show the really stupid ones, hopefully not all americans believe we’re lumberjacks in igloos without electricity… Right?

I had some relatives in England that believed we (here in Canada) were still prone to occasional Indian raids from up the coast as well as the occassional polar bear attack whilst downtown.

I like canadians. They smell nice. And if your sister-in-law is single let me know. Oh yes, and don’t expect the Dollar to be weak for that much longer. I predict a decline in the Euro within the next two years. So get your spending on now while you still can.

This one was a thing of beauty, B. I can’t believe you made those subway turnstiles look like they belong there.

Is Sharon single? Ask her if she’d go out with me, as soon as I get back from my date with InvaderJess in Alaska.

That’s pathetic. Damn British and their horse-drawn carriages! <.< They don’t STILL ride horse-drawn carriages, do they? If so, it kinda ruins my joke. At least they don’t use big sailboats anymore, right? Right?

I’m a New Yorker girl and I love the comic.

I had a moose run through my backyard a few times! O yeah and a wolf gave birth under our tree in the back…thats about it in canada…no polar bear/indian attacks (yet!). Yep I love Canada.

Anyways great comic, but no matter how hard I look I can’t seem to find St. Peter! Where is he?

Excellent comic! I know how Preston feels. Sometimes you just want to know…

I work in the airport in Vancouver, and believe me, I have heard it all when it comes to silly questions from tourists. My defense mechanism is just to smile and nod…

-Treach, dead on comment off the comic.

But come on now… this only being guy humour? Quick, I need an adult, I am being sexually repressed by their sexist feminist views!
Yeah, that’s it…

Anyway, my girl friend absolutely loves this comic. Says it is the only thing good that happens on Monday and that it is the only thing that brings her joy….. actually she tells me that while we are having lunch together, on mondays. So um…. uh-oh?

And us Canadians…. ah the fun of enjoying other peoples company. While over here in Scotland on a ‘working holiday’ (which is short for “work while you live in Scotland”) I have been asked why President George W. Bush runs Canada soo poorly. I told him that Canada has a Prime Minister. “So then, Canadians use a different title for the President then the Americans?” Yeah… my heart broke a little at that.

And now hungry for some food.

Wow I never realized how many other canadians love this comic!

I can’t wait for the new one on wednesday!

Damn, my illusions are shattered.

I read this comic at work if Monday starts to move slowly. I’ve yet to see a slow Monday at work but I read it at work anyway and hope not to get spotted by my manager.

Wednesday and Friday I work the afternoon shift so I read at home and manage to keep smiling all afternoon because of it.

To get through Tuesdays and Thursdays, I make up stories in my head about Canadians and igloo living. It’s fun ;)

I would like to add at this point that there is a difference between England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. All different countries. There is no such thing as “Britain” nor is there any such thing as a “British” person or accent. I’m English and can’t help that Scots are all drunken idiots.

Hehehe. Funneh. Lil’ doll angels in the background. Mocking Preston. Singing, “Lalalalala! The pearly gates are out of service! Too bad you’re not dead yet so we can tell you this for real! Lalalalala!”

In Canada, we ride caribou instead of horses. And if you live within five miles of school, you have to jog there and back.

Unless it’s winter, in which case, you have to pull out the dogsled and ride it to school. Or the skidoo.

BULL!

you don’t do any of that, stop messing with the minds of our American (and other) friends’ head

we naturally ride seals. ‘-’ Why else do you think people get so mad with all that clubbin? I mean, have you tried to fill up a tank of gas lately? I for one am glad we have alternative means of transportation.

but you gotta admit aLp IS pretty damn good? *runs away*

My bad. Of course we don’t ride caribou. And it’s not seals either. It’s fire extinguishers. Limited use only. Batteries not included. (BNI is a pretty good movie…)

And we don’t go to school. We all live in gullies and get home-taught. Me ma are pretty good at them teachin’ thangs. It’s ALWAYS winter up here! You just can’t see it for about two months.

We also have strange rodents. They’re huge with big orange teeth. They chew right through wood and have flat tails! It’s called the beaver.

Also, we hunt deer and moose. The deer here are much bigger than in the states. My sis’s fiance came up and saw a deer head, then asked, “Is that a moose?” We all looked and laughed. It was just a deer. Moose can get huge. Like as tall as a house! And we have space stuff in space on american shuttles and stuff. It’s called the Canadarm. It’s a big robotic arm. Ontario is bigger than Texas. But, dammit, our squirrels are smaller.

Talk with an irish accent and you’ll get the joke:

An irish man was visiting Canada and his friends took him on a train. Along the way he spots this big creature and asks his Canadian friend what it was.

“Oh that’s just a Moose” The guy says.

“A Moose!?” The Irishman cries, “If that’s a moose i’d hate to see a Rat!”

Yeah, for example, since i’m from Australia, i ride kangaroo to work and have a few as pets.
Man, such a petism and mapism!
But absolutely love it, can’t wait to meet someone from Texas and ask them if they have an oil platform in their back yard and cows as pets and everyone’s a cowboy!
LOOOOOVVVVEEEE it.
And by the way, so bloody early, hate days for that, how dare they starting at 6am!!!! Man i hate going to work!

You crazy canadians I see all of you driving 20 miles under the speed limit here in michigan. Where we all drive pick ups and snow mobiles and build log cabins.

OI! My sis’s fiance is from Texas! And he doesn’t have an oil platform. He’s in the navy. Well, not anymore. He’s going to be living up here ^.^

And the reason we’re under the speed limit is because we don’t want to go over it, and we have kilometres rather than miles on our speedometer. You crazy americans, you close everything down for a FROST warning!

I went down to Norfolk and it snowed the most it ever had in eighty years. Pfeh. Two centimetres of really light, damp snow, at the most. There were kids making snowmen that come only up to my waist, if not my knees, and people were spinning out on roads.

I’m female and LOVE this comic. Helps that I live in NYC, I think- I read strip #1 and got hooked for the very NY-centeredness of it. The only stuff I didn’t get was a lot of the baseball stuff, since I’m SO not a sports fan.

This episode is right there among the best of them though!

And yah, I lived up North, just moved down to Ottawa and man.. you call this winter… Saguenay you had Blizzards all year round…
By the way my moose says Hello, his name is Mouse.

You crazy, prideful americans and your elimination of crucial vowels in words. Like colour. You can’t get the right “lour” sound without the “u” so you say it like “ler” but it’s not “ler” it’s “lour” like “loor.” Er, not really… Hehehe. This comic rocks my socks.

Flame? this is hardly flaming :roll:

And as far as Pres going to heaven, of course he’s going to heaven, just not now because the entrance is out of order. He’ll go there one day I’m sure. All good little boy and girl predators go to heaven.

My country went to war (originally from Croatia) because of crap like that, why do you think i got the flunk out of there?
This is how you write/pronounce(phonetic) word “milk” in

Mleko/Mlijeko.
Serbian/Croatian.

So you think Yanks are hard-asses???????
We went to war for “IJ”.
TOP THAT!!!!!!
DARE YOU!!!!

(Did simplify it, but just about right!!!)

And if get a chance to watch Serbian/Croatian team playing soccer/football, for the love of god DON’T!!! Stay at home and watch “i love lucy” or any show rerun to death rather than go, they tend to try to set fire to anything, and beat the opposition up.
And players.
And cops.
As they did in Australia just recently.
I know, rant, rant…. But damn, they all Nutz.
