THAT was scary!

Lotsa folks freaked out by this… the building across the street seems to have been evacuated…

It lasted about a minute or so… I didn’t think these things lasted that long…

Cell service is down.


And if ya can’t play with it properly, then you don’t get to play with it at all.

The Government of Québec has made the wise move of pulling all of its police force’s Tasers out of the field after some of them were shown to be malfunctioning.

Hopefully a full ban is next and the rest of the country follows suit… if our cops can’t use it with respect, then they should not have this weapon.

Are you listening, RCMP???

The Dippers have won a seat in Québec!!!!! Outrement is theirs!!!!

The freezing over of Lucifer’s ‘hood surely must mean that….

The Leafs WILL indeed win the Cup this year!

I had better book my hotel room now for the post season celebrations that will take the city (and the nation) by storm! Come to think of it, I should stake out my spot along the parade route – just to be sure!
