Why didn't he choose a better day to die?

Out of all the stupid things you've said, and there have been a few, that is by far the stupidest.

I thought it was divine justice for the blasphemy of playing anything but hockey on Canada Day.

No it's just stupid trying to masquerade as witty and clever.

If you were trying for humour there, Walter, I'd give it a fail!

Don't be all judgey. If you were stupid, you'd try to conceal it, too.

Nice of Walter to at least try to be clever, even though he failed so badly.

I'm wondering if those Sunday 'meetings' put weird ideas in his head. Do I smell a "red"?

Do you think trying to reduce needless fatalities among otherwise healthy young people is a bad idea?

I do. It's anti-Darwinian.
