Graham Clark on why fighting in hockey is like eating fondu in the shower

Graham Clark on why fighting in hockey is like eating fondu in the shower
I like fighting and I like hockey. I also like fondu and I like having a shower ... it doesn't mean they go together so great.

You say, "it's a part of the game," well I didn't hear anyone complaining about the lack of fights when Canada whipped Sweden in the Olympics.

Debra DiGiovanni on why people who wear high heels are also cat murderers

Debra DiGiovanni on why people who wear high heels are also cat murderers
The high heel shoe is the ultimate weapon of mass destruction: Destruction of not only vertebrae, but also the worth of a woman! You pro-heel people probably also don't want women voting, and the idea of two girls on stage right now only fills you with thoughts of Jell-O fights. Well, Nellie McClung never wrestled in gelatin.

We try to put a sweater on them and if they refuse they are banished from the cities forever! Which is unfair! Because based on the amount of sweaters given to me by older relatives that I refused to wear I should be banished to the woods as well.
