Overheard in Roomie's Bedroom:

TV Talking Head: "...and the cost of sending a letter to Canada or Mexico has increased to 85¢."

RX: "Which is why you should never write to someone in Canada or Mexico."

Me: "It's not like the heathen savages can read anyway. They don't even have real speech; just 'Bar, bar, bar'..."

RX: "Well, in Canada it would be 'Bar, bar, bar, eh?'"

So you are saying it is now harder for a letter to cross the border than an illegal immigrant?

At least she wasn't singing..."barbarbar, barbarb'ra ann..."

An in-law's name is of all things Barbara Ann, so we hear that. A lot.

So what's the cost of shipping an AK-47 to Mexico City? Ooops! Sorry. The BATFE picks up the Tab for that stuff. Nevermind.

Canadian mail also takes an extra few weeks to arrive since it goes through some kind of Customs, while Mexifornian mail goes straight to the money-exchange.

Meanwhile in Canuckistan, a dispatch to the States via Canada Post costs 1.05 loonies.

You did know that there are only three letters in "Canada"?


(I'm sorry, I couldn't help it.)

There's a couple of funny ones over at

My favourite is:

Co-worker #1: "When you 69 someone, it just dials the number right back."
Co-worker #2: "It’s star 6 – 9. Also, I don’t think you know what you just said."

Who writes letters to people in Mexico? Odds are, the intended recipient is already here in the US somewhere.

You are correct sir!

The first three letters of the Korean alphabet are pronounced KA NA DA.

Oh, I'm so pedantic, eh?
