Well, what a week. Sitting in my hotel, looking back at the week I had. Looking forward to being home tomorrow.

Lots of traveling. Meetings. Seminars. Breakfasts. Lunches. Dinners.

And Canadians.

From Quebec.

Lots of those funny French Canadians.

Of course, when we weren't talking engineering, we were talking politics.

I managed to bring down the house when they started espousing the virtues of their medical programs, and I replied with, "Sure it's free, but every IV bag is just filled with Poutine".

Of course they mocked Trump, jeered at Hillary, and laughed at all of us.

But it was all in fun. especially when they found out that even this savage American was conversant in French!

Mon dieu! My liver will never be the same!

The point is, we were all grown ups. Since the youngest among us was probably 50, we were all seasoned enough to enjoy our disagreements. Not a single person was killed this week. No fists were thrown.

It was fun.

I prefer it when you bang on about evil liberals and FEMA camps.

You're boring when your nice and inoffensive.

"A week with Canadians" How could you stand it? I have problems with those people! HAPPY FESTIVUS!! I will air my grievances with the Canadian nation! I like the melody of your national anthem better than that of Great Britain! They stole the melody to "My country tears of thee"! (or is it tares of thee?) The British are not to be trusted and... You Canadians spell words funny? What, you think your special?. I must be pinned by an anttractive, fit Canadian woman or FESTIVUS WILL CONTINUE!

When I was leaving, I was "gifted" with a beautiful knife from my hosts.

They promised to mailed it to me because they "wanted me gone quickly" and they didn't want me stopped at the airport.

I humbly replied that his heart (tête) was filled with kindness (merde).

I think I got the translation right. I speak French, but my words may have been off.

When go to bed with a Canadian girl, she will always be wearing wool sox. No other clothes just sox. People don't have a foot fetish in Canada apparently? Men...? I dunno same thing? (Maybe someone from Montreal can tell us about it?)

Foot fetish? I don't get, but thats another thread Maybe for the Politics forum?

French Canadians aren't really French! You can't say that that butchery of language is French, it might be Canadian though. As I have stated earlier, I HAVE GRIEVANCES TO AIR WITH THOSE PEOPLE! Like I said, they spell funny! I do love the Mounties though. Maybe I can be pinned by an attractive female Mounty? Clothing is completely optional. I of course, will wear full Festivus regalia!

Well: Glad you had a good time, in probably Québec City.
The dent you made in our alcohol reserves, has triggered an emergency production run.
We should be fine in a few months, but next time: please advise us 2 months in advance, using the keyword:

"Drinking-Boozing-Cowboy".

Merci, et à la prochaine.

Dude: stop imagining snow-boot flavored ice-cubes.

Instead: imagine toque-clad babes in a hot-tub, as the snow gently falls... in meters.

Doesn't sound that bad, you could have been stuck in a snow storm this time of year, or gotten attacked by a crazed beaver or who knows.

But anyways! So did you ask them Canadians what Canadian bacon is called in Canada? I mean do they just call it Bacon? Since you know technically it comes from there. That would be bizarre would it not? If Canadians called Canadian bacon, Canadian bacon as well. Would it not just be called round bacon. Makes more sense.

A wacky bunch that's for sure, surprised that the whole place hasn't been annexed into being the 51 state yet.

Look one has even learned to rap. Must have learned from the greatest rapper of all time Eminem.
