Why don't the French eat two eggs for breakfast?

This is funny! I don't know how you got this but the crest in the header shows it's from the anglophone McGill University in Montréal (about thirty km from where I am). The translation is as awful as the original message and shows that it was probably composed by grounds personnel with at most a seventh grade diploma...

At least I hope it's the case!

I also love the fact that in downtown Montreal a skunk is on the loose! Of course, this location is very close to Mont Royal, so probably the skunk has just migrated a few blocks.

I know we're small and obscure and a long way from anywhere, but we really are a whole separate country from Australia!

Not being up on Canadian geography, I'm assuming that Mont Royal is where the local parliament is located.

Not even close. Sorry! Montréal even being the province of Québec's metropolis has absolutely no political center of activity other than a few riding offices, provincial and federal. Mount Royal or Mont Royal is the central mountain that gives its name to Montréal. In this case it's the name of the neighborhood on the mountain.

As a side note, all cities with large vegetation tracts harbor a wide selection of wild omnivorous animals such as raccoons and skunks. New York is a good example.


Ps. The Federal Parliament of Canada is in Ottawa and Provincial Parliament of Québec is in Québec city.

Speaking of country mix ups

At the G20 meeting in Seoul last year it was decided to present the attendees with little replica dolls of themselves. Aussies were pissing themselves (or at least the Australian's with a sense of humour) because the Korean's decked out the Julia Gillard doll in "Sound of Music" garb. The Austrian Australian mixup was quickly fixed with a quick change to a drab dress.

Edit: a pair of lederhosen and a silly hat would have been more suitable.

I live not far from NYC (about 37 miles via I-78) and can confirm that NYC is also home to a large population of opossums and foxes -- and a reasonable population of coyotes.
