Yes, I am making a teeny, tiny Douglas Coupland joke, because I read that book in grade twelve.

But also–and perhaps more importantly–this really happened to the paper! It happened all the frickin’ time! More on that on Thursday.

I’m having lots of fun with this snagging joke, but not as much fun as Dale here. He just wants to learn!

Also I worked hard to make Jeff Leiper look more like the actual Jeff Leiper and not like a goblin man taking the form of Jim Rash, but I’m not sure I succeeded. I’M TRYING, JEFF. PLEASE DON’T COME AFTER ME, I LIVE IN KITCHISSIPPI WARD AND I’M DOING MY BEST.

AS DISCUSSED, you’ll notice, if you’re reading this in real time and not via archives long in the future, that there are ads now. They’re through Google AdSense, so I’m not in control of what exactly they are, but please let me know immediately if you see something offensive, gross or obtrusive. I will bring the swift hand of justice down upon Bad Ads and anything that autoplays sound or leaps out from its designated banner rectangle.
