Good to know they’re teaching kids the right things in Canadian schools these days.

It’s only February and we’ve already got the asshole of the year.


#4

The outcome of this story was far less heinous than I would have imagined from the setup.


#5

Seems like there should be more to this story than what the CBC is telling us.


#6

Personally relieved to discover “sell a man a fish” was not a euphemism.


#7

Why was the man trying to buy the boy’s fish?


#8

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day.
Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime.
Teach a man to trade fake weed for fish, he is outsmarted by a young boy, throws a temper tantrum and ends up in jail.

I always thought that adage seemed narratively unresolved.

Oh no we don’t. Trust me on this.


#10

The free market works!

That’s way too premature. Have you forgotten that this is an election year in the US? The possibilities are greater than one can imagine.


#12

Sadly, I suspect you’re right.


#13

Do you know that Donald Trump is campaigning for President in the Republican primaries?


#14

Was it a tropical fish? Maybe this was all just a misunderstanding about what was meant by “trading for reefer.”


#15

Late stage capitalism.


#16

I have so many questions that I am incapable of articulating them.
