What The Hell Wednesday - Oh Canada!

It seems that What The Hell Wednesday has primarily focused on the good old US of A with a foray or two into Europe I really don't keep track of that kind of detail so if you want to verify, just hit my WTHW archives. So today we visit our fine and friendly neighbors to the north who brought you Molson, Arctic air currents with tons of snow and my friend at Absolutely Narcissism. Really...she is VERY funny and you should go see her.

Drunken Snowmobiler Taunts Police

Mounties say a man was so drunk he thought it would be a good idea to taunt police by spinning his snowmobile around a parking lot while swearing at officers.

Selkirk RCMP say the bizarre incident began around 12:30 a.m. Friday in a hotel parking lot in Petersfield, north of Winnipeg.

The man finally fell off his snowmobile right in front of officers in the midst of his antics, said RCMP.

Police arrested a 35-year-old man from the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews and impounded a 2011 Polaris snowmobile.

Imagine that....a drunken Canadian. Will wonders never Okay, yes, I am stereotyping, but that is just part of the fun of What The Hell Wednesday, it give me free reign to get obnoxious. You know, to be an ugly American. We are soooo good at it.

What I really love about this story is the drunken snowmobiler is riding in circles around the mounties. For some reason this brings to mind the scene in Indiana Jones where the giant of Arabic decent see I can be politically correct brandishes his sword as Indy pulls out a gun and shoots him. Can't you just picture the mounties shaking their heads, pulling out their pistols attached around their necks ala Dudley Dooright and firing away until the bullet riddled snowmobile falls silent. Snowmobiler should have known you done bring a knife to a gun fight.

But in reality, snowmobile guy ends up being so drunk that he falls off the vehicle at the feet of the RCMP. Classic. This is right out of a McKenzie Brothers movie, eh? What was he yelling at the cops? "Eff off you hosers!"? I just wish my imagination was so vivid that I could make this stuff up, but....this is a true story.

I am sure the Mounties looked at the fallen snowmobiler at their feet, shook their heads and said "What the Hell, eh?"

Holy crap! You used the same example from Indiana Jones that came to my mind while reading the escapades. That's hilarious! Jeez, I'd love to tip back a few brews with that dude. I'd love to see what he'd do if I left him with only a unicycle.

Friggin hilarious! Them silly drunken Canucks :) We can take the ribbin though. Take off, eh!!

Julie Ferguson said...

LOL, I can just see the mounties standing there with no expressions on their faces waiting for that drunkin' idiot to fall.

I HATE Canadians...ok....not ALL Canadians, but two.

And believe me....they ruined Montreal, Winter, Canada and the New Year for me.

Well, I got over it, but what is it about Canadians? Perhaps it's that they rub up too close to moose?

Montreal was a strange city...of course it was -37 degrees that week....but geez. Culturally it reminded me of New Orleans without the bad weather...or bad weather but in the opposite direction.

We fell into a nest of Frenchies (I'm not politically correct)who were openly appraising women in French....not suspecting that some tourists can speak enough French to give you a black eye.

And that was my experience in BOTH Montreal and New Orleans.


And where were the Mounties in Montreal???

Yeah, us Canucks like our beer. Heck, I'm drunk right now, eh? But for the record, I've never appraised women in French. Or rubbed up with a Moose, come to think of it...

(This is all in good fun, of course. There really needs to be a font for teasing and sarcasm!)

Sandra said...

OMG this is funny, both your analysis of the situation and the actual news article, which doesn't surprise me one bit that it made the news. What else happens here?
Although I do have to make one clarification: the police would not have had their guns around their neck. They would have had antlers tucked into their belts...the better to stab out the eye of the drunken snowmobiler!
Thanks for the shout-out Mr. Le Monkey! I quite simply adore you!

Good day eh,

Did you realise that it was a couple of Canadians who basically sorted out the Universe? Please allow me to explain. Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) of Star Trek fame, is Canadian. You remember this famous line? 'Space... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship 'Canada eh'. Then again, there was also Commander Adama, (Lorne Greene) another Canadian trying to get things sorted out in space and the leader of a noble mission. Do you recall him saying this? "Fleeing from the Cylon tyranny, the last Battlestar, 'Galacticanada', leads a ragtag, fugitive fleet, on a lonely quest—for a shining planet known as Earth." So there you go, some overwhelming 'proof' just how vital Canadians have been in our space type adventures.
Wait there's more. Let me tell you about an invention by a truly great Canadian scientist. The year was 1962, the scientist in question, Edward Asselbergs, created something so significant to the betterment of mankind, that other events of 1962, such as John Glenn being the first American to orbit the earth, pale by comparison. That's right, Mr. Asselbergs brought to the world.... instant mashed potatoes.
Have a good New Year eh.
Kind wishes, Gary :-)

Mounties taser people to death. They don't believe in bullets unless they're gone fishing.
