Only one way to find out.

I'm sure Manton has something suitable in his Japanese knife collection for bear hunting.

I'm sure he doesn't. I mean, yes, he probably has a knife that will be perfectly suited, but why turn down an opportunity for more knife shopping???

Back in the late 80s/early 90s, when the US dollar was worth .40 more than the Canadian, when an American paid with a $20 or a $50 I'd give them exact change back in Canadian and tell them we only took US at par. We all did it and made big bucks just changing those Yankee dollars in at the bank the next day.

All good journalism contains ALL CAPS and clickbait video.  I learned this from Gothamist.

 

P.S.: Did you know that AirBNBers bash gays while eating cronuts on CitiBikes?  Click here for the video.

As they have banned smoking everywhere in New York for the health of the people in general, why haven't they banned eating? As I see it fat people are far more of a nuisance than your average smoker.

When was the last time a smoker posed a hazard to your nice new shoes? Fat people are generally clumsey and wear bad footwear to accomodate their bulk and have little or no appreciation of sartorial elegance. It is hard to look stylish wearing elasticated jeans with half a burger in your hand.

During the summertime commute the increase in offensive odours may indeed be down to the increased sweating from our horizontally challenged friends.

Has it not backfired as the smell of cigarette smoke largely masked out the pervading body odour from a section of the community that sweat as soon as the weather turns mildly warm?

Likewise it is disturbing that you can get mugged by an ethnic minority with little chance of recompense, but should you light up a cigarette to calm your nerves after said event, the police are likely to fine you.

You can buy a gun to protect yourself but you can't have a cigarette to steady your aim :hide:

Bloomberg tried to put he ban on big sodas. But the reason is likely these obese people are considered to have a "disease" and banning of certain foods/habits there would be heresy and an imposition on their rights.

I'm surprised more things like the soda ban hasn't come up with the Affordable Care Act in place.

This was such a good skit, one of his best along with the Rick James and Prince one.
