People not from Canada often typify Canadians as being one big homogenous group. Nothing could be further from the truth. One of the more entertaining things for me, having just moved from British Columbia to Alberta, is seeing the totally different kind of people that reside in this province as opposed to my old homeland. Sure, there are a lot of similarities, but it’s the differences that really stand out.
While reader CaffeineFuelled was on vacation, she somehow stumbled across a wedding that took Redneck Fabulous to a whole new level. Eschewing the traditional limo, the bride and groom chose the wonderful vehicles pictured below. As the story goes, CaffeineFuelled and friend were walking to their car, and were passed by the wedding procession. Complete with, as I understand it, the bride — in full wedding dress — hanging out the window cheering herself on. I imagine her doing so with beer and cigarette in hand. Puttin’ the “ass” in “classy”, right there.
But that’s not the end of it. Oh no. As it all happened too fast for photos to be taken, our intrepid tipster tracked them down and took photos of the bus, finding the bonus golf-cart in the process. Then, knowing I hadn’t had anywhere near enough recent practice of my FacePalm and HeadDesk skills, she texted each photo to me on my cell, with virtually no explanation.
Now that’s friendship, right there.
