It's Funny 'Cause It's Not Funny

You can own this, but not if you mean it

The following is a list of things you cannot do unless you are doing them in an ironic manner:

- Have a nickname
- Wear a cowboy hat (or any other cowboy-related paraphernalia)
- Smoke a cigar
- Listen to music from the 1980s
- Enjoy or reminisce about cartoons of the 1980s
- Wear clothing from or inspired by the 1980s
- Wear aviator sunglasses (and, really, sunglasses in general is pushing it with me)
- Wear a toque with a pom pom on the top
- Wear an election-related button
- Profess to agree with Stephen Harper
- Talk fondly of 1950s mainstream society
- Grow a moustache
- Wear a jacket to a bar
- Wear converse sneakers
- Watch wrestling
- Actually call it “Victoria Day”
- Go to a casino
- Wear your school jacket (I’m looking at you, Engineers!)
- Have a ringtone that’s a song (if you must have a cell phone to begin with)

I’m not saying you can’t do this stuff. I’m just saying that, if you do, you cannot place any significance on any of it.

Mike you are hilarious. You know, I would love to see you pimped out with some aviators... next time we go out we should both sport a pair. ANNNNNND, we'll get one of those Diana plates and turn it into the medallion hanging from our bling. Ok.

Poor England's rose. She was a candle in the wind.

Her candle burned out long before her legend ever will...
