Green Men Better Step Up Their Game

imageFrom the Canadian Press (via THN):

“We have a few things up our sleeves,” Force, part of the green dynamic duo, said Tuesday. “We are going over some plans. We are heading to a thrift shop this afternoon.

“Boston has some good celebrities we can make fun of. Zdeno Chara’s height may be a target. We have to step up our game.”

Maybe it’s just me, but I think there might be something quintessentially ‘Canadian’ about planning pranks—that are liable and likely to get international coverage—by haunting the local thrift store. 

Canadians: Yes, we’re understated and cheap. And we’re not embarrassed to say so. grin

And these two specific Canadians are so cheap they stole their schtick from an American-made sitcom… wink

Indeed! Though I dare say, they stole it and ran with it rather effectively for their own nefarious purposes, right? wink

Well to be fair Nathan, I think the longest running Canadian TV show was Kids in the Hall. I wouldn’t be surprised if the average length for a Canadian TV show is one season. Kinda hard to rip off a Candian TV show when they’re not even around as long as a hockey season lol.

Hahaha, just teasing, of course. Yes, they have certainly run with it and given it a life of its own.
