Sorry, I know plenty of people in Gatineau and none of them leave their doors unlocked.

Maybe you're referring to Abitibi.

Yeah I'm no longer in Gatineau and I'd never leave my door unlocked over there. But over here it's not a problem

We also have almost as many registered firearms as people (and god knows how many unregistered) and yet we're not killing each other at gas stations and what not.....well at least outside the GTA

AngelorDevil - I hear you about the ketchup; correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Pineapple Crush really popular in Nfld (I *think* you're from there ); my colleague for my Secret Santa is from Newfoundland and he's mentionned wanting that a few times...I can't find it anywhere!

You are correct--I am from there! I've definitely seen that drink, though I don't drink it myself. Are you asking me to pick you up a can?

Yeah, can you fedex it to me in time for my Christmas party on Tuesday?


I googled it and came across a facebook page for Newfoundlanders and their beloved pineapple crush!!
I just learned there's a store near my house called "The Newfie store" so surely they must stock it...

That’s great news! Hopefully that place carries it. Meeting that Tuesday deadline would be a stretch for me.

I actually had no idea that Pineapple Crush was as beloved here as it appears to be! There must be pockets of Newfoundlanders who crave the stuff--maybe it becomes a community thing, and spreads. Historically, there’s been a slight cultural divide here between people living in the outports and urban dwellers, like me.

I did a random survey last night, because I was so interested in finding out if I was the only one oblivious to the provincial craving for this drink. The storekeeper next to my place had never heard of the story—even though she sells it. I was buying a newspaper, when I started in with, “Hey, did you know…?” I think she thought I was on drugs, or slightly crazy. Next up was the taxi driver, on the way to a Christmas party. After we’d discussed his resume, and various jobs he’s had around the world, I popped the same question (I felt much more comfortable asking this time). “I didn’t know that,” he responded. "It’s great stuff, hey? Just comes in tins though, right? Not bottles.”

Those were my profound discussions of the evening...

* As a token of my appreciation for the new U2 album announcement--and a way to strengthen the bond between our two countries--I will happily send a tin of Pineapple Crush to every Interferencer residing in Canada and the continental US. (Note: responses must be received over the next five minutes: 5:30 p.m. EST.)

Gah, I missed the deadline by 20 mins!

Your discussions with those people are hilarious! But what exactly are you asking them - if it's as popular as I've heard it is?
My colleague (actually, my boss!) is actually from St. John's so I guess he's def urban like you but he hasn't lived there in 25-30 yrs so perhaps that explains why no one agrees with him!

But the facebook group does seem to support him

Yes, the evidence supports him, for sure! If you google "Pineapple Crush," you come up with all kinds of Newfoundland-related posts. And, yes, that's what I asked the people last night: whether they knew about the exclusivity of it. I bet if I'd asked at the party I went to later in the evening, many would've heard of it...It's just good to know that I'm not the only one who is ignorant.

...If you go to that store and really want to impress him, along with getting the Crush, you could get some Purity candies--or a bottle of Black Horse beer. I do know about those things!

You can PM me your address, if it's out of range for you locally. How about the first three Intereferencers who express interest get a tin?

Well, I would request one but what kind of "Newfie store" is it if they don't stock the stuff, right?
Btw, do most people drink it on its own or mix it with something?
And prior to my posting all this did you think the Pineapple Crush was available country-wide?

And thanks for the tip on the Black Horse Beer & Purity candies. Man, am I ever gonna get that promotion now :

hi my name is joe canuck eh? the date is december 22 2008 or 12/22/08.

my favorite color is gray, and there's a special exhibit at the local art center.

i don't use the present perfect, because i don't know what that is. it's like a ton of bricks fell on the collective youth of canada because wait this sentence isn't really adding up.

did i mention the date is 12/22/08?

that means the year is 98 percent finished.

yes, percent.

hey alan, what time is band practice?

hey, does anyone know what time american idol is on tonite? lol! did anyone catch last week's show?

soccer is such a gay sport, guys. hey did anyone catch the jaguars vs. titans match?

i'd be honored if someone would armor my computer with antivirus software, guys. anyone up for the challenge?

hey i'm canadian! i use microsoft word and facebook and forgot anything i ever learnt in school, guys!

cana-da! cana-da! cana-da!!!!!!!!
