wonder if it had to do with Canucks being eliminated from the postseason. Already they’ve fired the GM.

I think he’s mad, too unstable,
kicking in chairs and knocking down tables
in a Tim Hortons in a west coast town.

There seems to be a line of demarcation between Tim Hortons restaurants and those of Dunkin Donuts. You either see one chain or the other.

Ditto for Waffle House and IHOP. It seems that those two chains part company at the Mason-Dixon line.

I take it that Vancouver doesn’t have concealed carry. A clip from an old Clint Eastwood movie also comes to mind.

Note to man who did this: Ya might want to start cutting back on the coffee.
There was an incident in NYC where a patient fell of the gurney as it was being loaded into the back of an ambulance. During the incident investigation interviewers noted that the paramedic drank a lot of coffee. They asked him how much coffee he drank a day and he replied 7. Cups, They asked? No thermoses, he said. Turned out that besides riding a box for the city, he volunteered at his local town fire station, and taught medic classes at a community hospital. The interviewers asked him what he did when he wasn't doing something in the first responder world and he said he spent time with his girlfriend. They asked him if that helped him relax and he replied not really, I worry that my wife will find out. Turns out he had forgotten to latch the straps on the gurney and a contributing cause was caffeine psychosis.

Nut, or gang activity, or maybe just a general lack of tasers and firearms among the staff. Thanks Loyalist.

Everyone can calm down now. Trevor Linden has been appointed president of the Canucks.

A favorite of mine—— Waitress asks customer,”Would you like decaf or non decaf?”

This is one of those subtle signs we professional mental health consultants look for that indicate possible anger issues.
