The Newfy finally moved to another tent but he picked one the ptarmigan were nesting under,that means they perched on the roof at all times in 24 hour daylight and made that strange call that sounds like fu*k you fu*k youuuuuuuuuu.
The Caper told him he was "trowin da trail mix" on his roof to attract the birds,he wasnt but it came up at the weekly meeting that someone was feeding the wildlife and it's a firing offence up there.
I had to explain it was a joke.
Here's one you might be familiar with if you lived in Winnipeg a few years back...
That's what the Salisbury House chain of diners called their cheeseburger. My mother thought it was cool and tended to start calling all burgers "nips." She used to get some strange looks when requesting a burger in other places!

Speaking of tum wrenches; hubby calls them "knucklebusters". According to him if you put enough pressure on them, they let go of the bolt and your knuckles take a bashing.
My husband was born and raised in Ontario. He used to say "drier than a popcorn fart" ; "slicker than snot on a doorknob" ; those I remember, there were a few more. Don't know if those were 'Ontario things'. Mine is ordering a drink 'neat'. Most waitresses in Edmonton know what that is, but on a trip to Ontario years ago, the waitresses had no idea what that meant.
