But I'm Canadian, So Everything's OK

Bought these glasses for $14.99 US at the John Wayne International Airport. Finally opened them up and read the warning label:

WARNING: This material used as colored decorations on the exterior of this product contain lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.

This warning applies to the State of California only

I know that you'll never have anything happen or stay in Vegas again, Sheena. But you've found some powerful strong glasses. They only cause cancer in one special place. The glass has that look about it to change when filled to reveal naughty bits.

Cheek, there's a reason the Duke wasn't in Brokeback Mountain.

Now I'm gonna have bad dreams tonight.

I wonder what would happen if you filled it with Coke and let it sit for a year...

The funniest warning label I ever saw was in braille. On the airside of the ramp at DFW. For all of those blind ramp rats, mechanics and pilots....

Whitenoise, WTF is up at Dulles today? Sat at Pearson from 6am to 10am before I gave up and 'off loaded' because clearly was going to miss half the day, and didn't want to get stuck there overnight without any basic shit.

Another guy flying from YOW got redirected to Baltimore and last I heard from him was on a bus to IAD.

Pertaining to my comment in the last post, the nurse in I Walked With A Zombie is also Canadian!


John Wayne got cancer from a nuclear test???

Wow.

Of course, you all realize that James Stewart was a war hero who refused to allow the studio to publicize his WWII record, and John Wayne never wore a uniform off set.

Of course, neither have I, so I'm not pointing fingers. I'm just saying his real name was Marion, that's all.

I dunno. Wasn't paying attention to the weather in that area today. While the event is occurring you can check delays

I've been to the Will Rogers World Airport, but not John Wayne.

Some times I really get a craving for sour cream 'n onion paint chips, saskboy.
