Golden Oldies

Timely Golden Oldie joke

Caption: Two boys are playing ‘road hockey’ on a street in Toronto when one is attacked by a rabid Rottweiler. Thinking quickly the other boy takes his stick, wedges it down the dogs collar and twists, breaking the dogs neck.

A newspaper reporter who was strolling be sees the incident, and rushes over to interview the boy.

“Young Leafs Fan Saves Friend from Vicious Animal,” he starts writing in his notepad. “But I’m not a Leafs fan,” the little hero replied.

“Sorry, since we are in Toronto, I just assumed you were.”  He starts again.

“Little Blue Jays Fan Rescues Friend from Horrific Attack” he continued writing in his notepad.

“I’m not a Jays fan either, the boy said. “I assumed everyone in Toronto was a Leafs, Raptors or Jays fan. What team do you root for? “ The reporter asked.

“I’m a Montreal Canadiens fan.” The boy replied.

The reporter stars a new sheet in his notepad and writes, “Young Hooligan from Montreal Kills Beloved Family Pet.”

    I remember this race. There were no water stops on the course. But the race was sponsored by Labatts who provided the course officials with a liberal supply. Once I figured that out, I was able to quench my thirst. Several times en route.

    30 miles? Must have ran the distance 4 times…. the distance from lower town to Ste-Foy (not St Foy by the way…) is about 11.5 km…. (say 7 miles…) oh well. Time and space can be an issue after a couple of years… :-). – Check Google map guys :-)
