    And for some reason in this forum if you type the full name of the Quebec town two exclamation points and one Ha vanish from your post.

    For the record, Witless Bay, Jerry’s Nose, and Saint-Louis-du-Ha are real names of real towns, the first two in Newfoundland and the last one in Québec. It’s about 780 kilometres from Witless Bay to Jerry’s Nose and about 2,000 km to S-L-d-Ha Tabarouette is sort of a Québec equivalent of Heck or Darn. Darby Conley is fortunate Satchel’s folks don’t come from Dildo, Newfoundland, which is about 80 km from Witless Bay.

    A slice of life “borrowed” from the classic 1892 book “Diary of a Nobody” by George and Weedon Grossmith.

    More like Donald Duck’s nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie. Right down to the green, blue and red clothes. Of course, there are one or two notable differences. Unca Roy’s nephews don’t seem to have webbed feet and, unlike the Duck triplets, they’re wearing pants.

    A very similar scene was described in P. G. Wodehouse’s 1921 short story “The Clicking of Cuthbert” which, being now in the public domain in the U.S., is freely available at various internet sites, including gutenberg.org and madameulalie.org.

    Here is artist Wilmot Lunt’s illustration of the scene in the October, 1921 issue of “The Strand” magazine.

    “Any dog will tell you what these prize-ribbon dogs are like. Their heads are so swelled they have to go into their kennels backwards.” — From P. G. Wodehouse’s “The Mixer – He Moves in Society” (1915)

    I can’t believe that Ben and Liv, both good Canadians, would shop at a gardening store that misspells the word ‘centre.’

    It brings to mind this hilarious bit from the Canadian TV series ‘Corner Gas’ when Brent visits Dog River’s tiny public library.

    By an odd coincidence, the 1925 P. G. Wodehouse ghost story “Honeysuckle Cottage” begins with this gag.


    “Do you believe in ghosts?” asked Mr. Mulliner abruptly.

    I weighed the question thoughtfully. I was a little surprised, for nothing in our previous conversation had suggested the topic.

    “Well,” I replied, “I don’t like them, if that is what you mean. I was once butted by one as a child.”

    The Canadian quarter has a portrait of the Queen on one side and a a head-shot of a caribou on the other side. The American quarter has somebody else on the “heads” side and something else on the “tails” side.
    Aside from that, as of the close of the currency markets Thursday, a Canadian quarter is worth about half-a-cent more than an American quarter.
