Miscellany

Sometimes I enjoy affecting a loud Foghorn Leghorn accent and saying things like, "Why, my Daddy pulled me from the banks of the Cuyahoga River in the year of our lord, 1965."

I'm cool like that.

Damn Canadians come over here. Molson beer and shit. Maple leaf shirts. Saying "out" all funny and shit.

You can hardly imagine, RJ.

You come to Cleveland? You say "Eh?" or ask where to buy some Canadian Club? You say "potato" all weird-like? You're ass BETTER produce some papers.

Interesting history of Cleveland, and how close it came to being part of Michigan.

Do you watch, It's Always Sunny? There's a hilarious episode where Charlie is trying to sound like a rich tycoon, but just sounds like Foghorn Leghorn. One of my fave episodes.

I say the Cuyahoga?! Now did you say the Cuyahoga?!

The Cuyahoga?!

Why, I say, now listen son, I say my Daddy pulled me outta the mighty Mississippi in 1812. Now that was a real year. A real, regular three-hundred and sixty five day year, and let me tell you son, look at me when I'm talking to ya son, all of those days, they were a full twenty-four hours. None of this leap year non-sense that you kids are all engaged in today.

No sir, none of that non-sense at all. None of it.

Anyone that can reference "year of our lord" in everyday talk gets an A+ in my book...
