Yup guy, your right ... We are all just so head over heals crapping our pants over how awesome Vancouver is compared to everywhere else in the world. And I mean why wouldn't we be? They have syrup, the metric system, a team that hasn't won the Cup since their inception over 40 years ago. Yup, I personally don't know a single thing about Vancouver, that is not bar none, alone on top of the world for "best ______ ever".
In other news, not to be out done by Bryan, my family decided to pick up a dog yesterday too, our 2 cats are pissed and the fish, well, their just stupid fish anyway, surprised the cats haven't eaten them yet.... And in an effort to be the antithesis of everything Bryan does, we decided on an all-white dog (I say we, like I had a choice in the matter). Queue a muddy spring ...
If you follow my twitter, their are pictures of the dog there, if you care not for the zoo in my house, I present you your links ...
