a campaign.....by jack
« on: May 27, 2015, 07:49:13 PM »

friends.......i come with a heavy heart. ive come to bring awareness to an epidemic that is sweeping accross canada..........nay........the world. gentlemen, everyday millions of tops around the world suffer needlessy.......these majestic entities are used......and abused......and then left to freeze on our tables, our shelves and in our top boxes.............gentlmen i am calling for an end to their suffering! that is why i am proud to anounce that i am standing up for the rights of spintops around the world and saying "no! you cant just leave that there! u cant!" gentlmen..........i give to you:
toques for tops
a campaign to rid every spintop of the harsh cold of being still. gentlemen let us give our tops a real "rest" where they can be warm! and comfertable! and feel wanted! and let them know yes we care, yes we appreciate, yes we will give them the best damn life a top could have! we owe it to our tops gentlemen..........we at least owe them that much.........thank you for your time.............




this has been a public service annoucement by jack........which means in no way shape or form should said annoucement, or for that matter jack in general, be taken seriously..........in fact im not sure whos idea it was to let that jackass on here @-@
thank you

I am not familiar with toques.  It is not a normal Ohio phrase. 

I have studied up and now I know more about toques for tops!

 ;D

Every good campaign needs a rousing song!
Perhaps this is worth consideration. ;)  (No tops in this video.  You've been warned so no apologies if you get this song stuck in your head today.  >:D )

Earl, note at 0:40
question: How come he's not wearin' a toque?   ???
answer: Oh, he's not from the Great White North, eh.   ::)

I learned a few things from that video.

First of all, I learned "toque" is really pronounced "teuuuu - ke".

I also learned that I have been going the wrong way with my trips heading south to North Carolina and Florida because I should "take off to the great white north"!

glad to hear it there eh bud. you may find this video even more informative, red green has been a staple of every canadian life and has provided an outstanding education for many young canadians eh that is when they arent playing shinny (because if its winter red green can wait because why the hell are you inside bud if theres ice to skate on out there eh bud!?).

Yes, indeed, I am a knitter.  I knit mostly hats, with a group that gives them to chemotherapy patients and the homeless.  We meet once a week, and I thoroughly enjoy it. 

I like the way that lady ends her toques in that video, btw.  I'm going to have to try that....
