So, like any good respectable Canadian, I observed Rememberance Day yesterday.
I went to Old City Hall and watched the processions and such and went on my merry way. I figure that the least I can do for the tens of thousands of people who risked their lives, or lost their lives, trying to fight for me and my comfy lifestyle is to stand in the cold for an hour or so and pay my respects.
I truly believe that this is a worthy tradition and it should be honoured and passed down. The most meaningful part to me is the moment of silence. I loved that yesterday, the intersection of Queen & Bay was shut down to traffic, overrun by people and was completely silent for two minutes, everyone there for a common cause.
Everyone except the four bitches in front of me. Dear ho’s: The next time you come out to these events, do a little research. A moment of silence is intended to be SILENT, so that you can reflect upon the ceremony and pay tribute. A moment of silence is NOT intended as a great time for you to giggle, gossip, roll your eyes and act like 4 year olds while you are in fact, 40 year olds. Yes, it is very easy to hear one another without the din of everybody else in the background, I understand this. You stupid cows have no idea how close you were to getting kicked in the back of the knee.
Honestly. If you cannot shut your useless, fat traps for two minutes when you voluntarily attend a ceremony, that’s fine. But you most definitely deserve to be beaten. Probably caned. I think that for every meaningless word that falls out of your ugly mouth during these two minutes, you get one smack to the back, courtesy of a veteran’s cane. These men and women stood there in battle away from their families, away from their country, terrified, alone, uncomfortable and lacking basic human needs like shelter and food, being shot at, fighting for faceless countrymen back home.
SHUT. UP. You disrespectful fools.
I’m sorry. I had to get that out there. It seriously irritates me. Trust me ladies, your life is not so important that you simply cannot relay some type of information to each other between 11 and 11:02.
That is all. Lest We Forget.
P.S…….I totally made it onto the front page of the free daily newspaper in Toronto. Sure, I’m like, a millimetre big and pretty grainy, but I’m there in the crowd! Woop! 15 minutes of fame? Check!
