boB- Canadian – Eh ?

 

What use is a Canadian… and how can they be recognized?

 

Well they are cute, cuddly little things, non-assuming, humble,  placid and oh so polite … visitors from another planet who came to earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men.

Canadians, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel with their bare hands, and who, disguised as the average man mild-mannered, and cute (Paul Gross-like) fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, HOCKEY and the North American way.

=================

 

Now boB wants to lay claim to a few of these but he really has no proof …

 

I mean do you believe that he created the first Wonderbra when trying to catch his pet Raccoon Willomenia during the Great Mississippi River Flood of 1927 ?

 

Really boB?

 

And of course we KNOW (chuckle) that he was a’courtin’ Memphis Minnie when she wrote the famous "When the Levee Breaks" which was then reworked by Led Zeppelin, and became one of that group's most famous songs…

 

Dream on boBBy – boy…dream on….EH?
