The title of this post is a quote by O. Henry and I’m pretty sure that when he said it, he was so drunk he forgot that Canada has Thanksgiving too. And has it first. Monday, October 8th is Canadian Thanksgiving.
That’s right, there are actually things to be thankful for here in the land of moose and dogsleds. You know, the little things like not being knocked up and underwire bras. And this year, I have even more to be thankful for.
I am thankful for Canadian Whiskey.
I am thankful for drugs that, when combined with Canadian Whiskey, fight off the symptoms of Black Death, Malaria and/or Typhus.
I am thankful for drugs that, when combined with Canadian Whiskey, make the walls melt for a few hours. It helps pass the time until I die.

I am thankful I learned to type without looking at the keyboard since the combination of drugs, Canadian Whiskey and Black Death, Malaria and/or Typhus has rendered me unable to see the keyboard.

So, dear readers, lurkers and passersby, I am thankful for all the tens of ones of you who take the time to come by and spend some time here at WWFC. I am thankful for the comments, the laughs, the friendships and mostly the ones of tens of page views that are helping to spiral us up to the top of the last page in Google search results and making our dreams of world domination only slightly less ludicrous and unattainable. I raise my glass of Canadian Whiskey and drink to your health!
