Haiku For Monday #39

Dear Monday, why don't
you go bug someone else, eh?
Take off you hoser!

Note to my Canadian friends: No, I'm not making fun of you. I just had a major flashback to the time a friend and I watched Strange Brew about three gazillion times in a row. Comedy gold, people!

Heehee. I guy I worked with at the movie theatre used to call everyone hosers. Finally, after the umpteenth blank stare from me, he finally told me to see Strange Brew. Have I yet? No. I just wrote him off as being strange and possibly a bit too much into the brew himself.

"Ohhh man... I really gotta pee!"

That movie kills me. Now I must go out and buy it, of course.

Monday haiku-ing
will make me look so busy
on my first day back.

What do you hate worse though, Mondays, or Tuesdays after having a Monday off (long weekend).

Monday contains half
the letters found in Molson.
Now that's strange brew, eh?

Nice work, Stacy! That's actually a stroke of genius!

(Sorry Chris, we're just going on without you in your comments section here. Heh.)

"Hoser". Now there's a blast from the past. I agree with the Monday thing. When I'm dictator of the world, I'm going to outlaw Mondays - but only for myself. The rest of you peons will still have to work. In fact I might make every day a Monday for the rest of you.

I like that. Pretty much sums up Monday.

Take off, eh?
Hosers drink X, but the the boys drank Canadian, (again, eh) and they were Bob and Doug McKenzie. Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas.
Geddy Lee from the rock group, RUSH sang their theme song, 'Take off.'
No one here really says, take off. We use the 'f' word as a noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, pretty much wherever we can. But they couldn't swear on their tv show, SCTV so the substitute was used. Wait, is this true? Or am I making it up? Hmmmmm.

Man...I used to say that all the time when I was a kid and I now that I am married to a Canadian it might actually come in handy. I am gonna sping that on him tonight and see if he gets it.

"Strange Brew " is indeed comedy gold. It's based on "Hamlet'..no really it is! One of my prized possesions is the Bob and Doug album featuring the Take Off song w/Getty Lee from Rush.
