Thrift or Desperation?

Awhile back, about a year after I met my husband, I found myself wandering downtown Vancouver and (god forbid!) thinking like him...

"Vancouver does not truly have a poverty problem until the pigeons start disappearing," I thought to myself, staring at a park full of the things.

But then this came to my attention, the most wonderfully random bit of weather news that Canada has ever produced:



First she is a normal person, having a conversation, but then she...

...and no one comments?

Welcome to Canada.

Did you hear about the guy who was stealing the swans from Stanley Park? They were vanishing one by one and the bird specialists were in a panic, they couldn't figure out what was taking them.

One day the lady who feeds the skunks saw this Chinese guy chasing one of the remaining swans with a green garbage bag. He caught the bird and stuffed it into the bag, which he stuffed in the back of his volvo. She blew her rape whistle until a cyclist came by and tackled the guy and held him to the ground until the cops got there.

The thief was all, "I'm running a restaurant, and they're just wild birds. I don't see the problem here!" The cop had to restrain the crowd from punching out his lights.
