Bumfuck Canada


Canada: After our radio show Too Much Pressure on Sunday Gwen and I got to talking via Twitter about the new Spacey movie coming out. I got to thinking about how seriously awesome it would be if I could somehow get to Bumfuck Canada (where Gwen and Bluepaintred live) so I could see the movie with Gwen. I decided I’d do a significant drive just to get there, it was that worth it. Then I realized we’d each have to drive about 24 hours just to meet 1/2 way, that really sucked. I then thought I would try looking for flights, flights can’t be that expensive to Canada, right? For Manly Man (he insisted on coming because he fears I wouldn’t come back) and I to fly there and back it would be like $800. I fear I shall never meet Gwen unless all the land between here and Bumfuck falls into the ocean, here’s hoping.

Stakes: Since our show Too Much Pressure this Sunday is going to be about American vs. Canadian slang we still need stakes. Anyone have suggestions? I’d say if we lose we’d have to write about why our country sucks but I could do that anyway about my own country. Maybe if we had to do the top 10 reasons why the other country is awesome, I think that would be more of a chore.

Plan: So Gwen, Bluepaintred and I have a plan right now about running away to Ireland. The plan is to get a house in the hills where nobody can bother us. From what I understand there will be 5 cats, 1 dog, an unknown amount of sheep and llamas, and Manly Man to keep us entertained.

House: I blame all of your House watchers who did not warn me that season 4 was only 16 fucking episodes. It was such a shock and I’m still not over it, mostly because now I have to wait until August to see season 5. You’ve all disappointed me.


Don’t forget to check out Too Much Pressure on Sunday 6:00 pm EST. If you can’t listen to it then you can get the feed to listen to the podcasts.

    1. As much as I reeeeeally do want to see Shrink with you, if that can’t happen I think we should aim to see Casino Jack together since we’ve been following Kevin tweeting about it. Because it would be too awesome to watch it and be all “I remember that tweet!”

    2. How about this – I win I write ten reasons why the US is great. You win, you move to Canada. That’s fair, right?

    3. How about we just skip the stakes, the plans to visit, etc. and just go to Ireland already?

      @Gwen, Yes, Ireland seems like the best answer. If we ever do watch a movie together I think it needs to be filmed, the adventure of course not us watching the movie.

    How about the loser has to get pictures of him or herself while standing in various redneck bars wearing a sign that says “(other person’s country) rulz!”

    Is that $800 American, or are you talking about that metric money Canada uses that isn’t worth much?
