Very light on the humour.
In fact I can't see it from here. But I'm sure it exists.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

it was an OK post i found no humor in it though
but SarinMange that is no reason for giving "NEG" points at least not in my eyes.
February 5th, 2002, 09:59 PM

Why negitive points at all their just some jokes. If you cann`t laugh at yourselves then your taking life to serious.Theres enough bs outthere don`t let a little humor bog you down. I think they were funny because I can see humor in lifes little jokes.
No good deed goes unpunished.

I liked the post, poke fun at one and poke fun at all is my moto.

Actually, the origin of the part about Canadians is very commercial ... it's from a Molson Canadian ad. You can still find it on adcritic.com ... oops, you can't anymore. I just found out that AdCritic has kicked the bucket. Darn!
Anyway, the ad was all about a Canadian guy getting up on a stage and proudly speaking of his country. It ends with a shot of a nice, cold glass of Molson Canadian being poured.
A radiostation made a good rip-off on it about being Quebecois ... and how it's ok to celebrate your wedding anniversary in a strip-joint, since your wife goes on at 10 pm anyway.
It's a shame Adcritic isn't there anymore, it was fun to see some of those commercials.
PS = I agree that neg. points aren't worth it for humour postings ... we don't all have the same sense of humour and we should allow that diversity. But feel free to ignore my 2 cents.
