Sunday Funnies (on Monday – Oops)

Ok, it’s a long weekend up here in Canada and because of that I totally forgot yesterday was Sunday (yes, I’ve been under that much stress).

Here’s a quick tutorial for my American readers:

from Wikipedia: Victoria Day (in French: Fête de la Reine) is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, in honour of Queen Victoria‘s birthday. The date is also, simultaneously, that on which the current reigning Canadian sovereign‘s official birthday is recognized. It is sometimes informally considered as marking the beginning of the summer season in Canada, analogous to how the timing of the holiday Memorial Day is regarded in the United States.

(an extra note from me: Queen Victoria is the Great-Great Grandmother of the current Queen Elizabeth II and the Great-Great-Great-Great Grandmother of Prince William. Despite Queen Victoria being a model of morality her birthday celebrations in Canada are often associated with camping, bonfires, beer and drunkenness. The Queen’s actual birthday is May 24th, which has led to Victoria Day being referred to as  “May 2-4” – as in a case of 24 of beer.)

Now for the humour portion of my entry.

Here is Bob and Doug McKenzie. SCTV’s answer to Canadian Content regulations.

And Canadian-raised Jim Carrey on Canada.

I hope everyone is having a safe and enjoying holiday weekend!!

  1. That’s how it is in Canada – right? Ha ha.

  2. First off, I must start saying “eh”, all the time eh? Secondly, is “back bacon” as referred to in the credits what I’d call “Canadian bacon”, eh?
    Totally worth the wait! I love learning and being entertained all in the same post! eh!

      I’m so glad you’re learning!! lol
      Yes, back bacon and Canadian bacon are one in the same. And very yummy.
      Also, be careful with the overuse of “eh”. It’s a major faux-pas. Like saying “y’all” too often. 😉
