overheard in vancouver



This is definitely making it into my daily reads. A sample:

Your Typical Vancouver Public Service Announcement
September 29th, 2006

Overheard at the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s concert
Guy gets up on stage to do a PSA, Vancouver-style:
“If there’s anyone in the crowd tonight smoking marijuana cigarettes, please remember to share, as not everybody brought some.”
*crowd cheers & gets high*

And this is a must-see video for those of you, like me, who are in need of a smiley-face intervention. It's a 12-step program worth its weight in cat chow.

Thanks for that, I've passed it on. It got me wondering if you ever came across those spoof airport announcements that were doing the email rounds a few years ago. Go here and have a listen. They're funny enough to listen to again if you have heard them before.

That was funny :-) Ooops!

Do you know that last year when I joined a collector's message board, I actually had to obtain a computer jargon dictionary. I felt so dense because I did not understand any of the abbreviations. Thankfully at work, our email still follows the corporate memo style. I will file a harassment claim if an analyst sent me an email with ROTFLMAO.

Scott: My pleasure. If only you were the kind of blog that could return the favour... :) (oops)

Caroline: I'm sure I have you beat...

Joyce: I'm a chronic and compulsive perpetrator of the dreaded :) but *hate*hate*hate* LOL. I never said I was consistent.

Swampgrrl: Holy Scheiz indeed.

Nomad: Those are good -- they remind me of the infamous and hilarious talking cats video.

Sheri & Cream: I get it right sometimes ... until I do this :) that is.

Ces: I have to ask my 12 year old what half of them mean now. I feel so *old*.

Andrea you said, "If only you were the kind of blog that could return the favour... :) (oops)"

I do mention from time to time sites that link into Overheard in Vancouver in site news posting which I only do about once a month. So you have to be patient.

Another way to get a link is to submit an overheard conversation and include you website in your submission and I will include a link with your submission credit.

Good one, Andrea! Oops, exclamation points not allowed.

The only thing I really use a lot of is :-) or ;-) when I'm particularly enamoured by a female.

I will never say LOL or ROFL if I can help it. I promise.
