    To celebrate the Sesquicentennial, I'll be spending some quality time with something well aged from Canada. My choices are between ham and a great aunt I haven't seen for about 15 years.

    As a country, we should help our neighbor to the north out in their celebration efforts by giving them something they haven't had for quite sometime. Like an armed invasion.

    I just found a Canadian penny in my washer.

    It's a sign.
    Thanks from The Man and Madeline

    It's a sign alright. A sign you got ripped off the last time you got change back.
    Thanks from The Man

    To celebrate the Sesquicentennial, I was going to have the quintessential Canadian experience and go out into the mountains by myself, cut down some trees, kill whatever animals were nearby, make some handmade garments, and maybe even try my hand at doing some mining. Then I realized I'd once again confused Canada with Minecraft.

    Canada actually doesn't even use pennies anymore: Obituary: Canadian penny, 1858-2013 - Canada - CBC News

    Two of my favorite American ones are Penny Hardaway and Penny Marshall. I'm not sure I can even name a single Canadian Penny.
    Thanks from Madeline and NightSwimmer

    Penny Two-Wolves McMarie Bouchard. The first women to stab an opposing goalie with an icicle then put it in her jock strap to melt the evidence. 1858.

    National hero.

    Isn't that like .07 cents in American currency? Melt it down for the copper.

    Fuck the Mounties.

    I don't know how to patent a catchphrase, but 'quintessential Sesquicentennial' is a goldmine waiting to be tapped.
