Will he be charged with an offense for this? We have idiots like that in Canada too
Yes, of course he'll be charged - some folks lost their homes. The penalties are severe for lighting fires when there is a prohibition on lighting any fires - no barbecues, nothing!

Making light of such a serious situation seems inappropriate Jae.
Rest assured that the only thing I was poking fun at was the real or fabled love of Australians for shrimp on the barbie.

Except no Aussie would call them "shrimps" - we call them prawns....
(When Paul Hogan did a commercial to get more North Americans to visit us as tourists he said "shrimps" because we know that's what Americans say!)......

In the UK they used prawns for large ones and shrimps for small ones. Unless of course, they called them scampi.

That tends to be how it works in Ontario, too, IME. Prawn is something you see more on menus than in stores, too. In reality, there is a technical anatomical difference between a shrimp and a prawn but no one seems to know or care outside of scientists who study them.

Is this a crazy fixation, edification?

They also say knifes, color, honor and a bunch of other abominable words.

They call it "soda" instead of pop and they put your "soda" in a "sack" rather than a bag.

They also do not know how to colour their money properly.

Shocking.

It does explain why there is an interest in becoming great. Not a whole lot of effort expended becoming great but why do great things when you can buy a hat?
