If you liked Blazing Saddles, then you should like Evil Roy Slade.
Went looking for a clip, found several, but also found the whole shootin' match on YouTube.
I'll have to set aside some time to watch it to see if it's as funny as I thought back in '72.

Yep.
Bacon is cured pork belly (usually smoked) no matter the size or age of the pig/hog/swine.
Unless it is Canadian bacon, in which case, it is made from cured and smoked Canadians. I don't know what they are cured from.

Bell???? I've not had a bell since primary school!

Yes, Bell! Here in the Portland area there are many adherents to the Cult of the Clueless Cyclist. A bell is part of the standard outfit:
  • No helmet
  • Skinny jeans or crop pants (both genders)
  • Flat bar
  • No-label frame in matte black
  • Fixy...no brakes
  • Bell
  • Earbuds
Just like in "Portlandia".

OK ... but, I wonder why hociR does not issue its own credit card.

That could be quite evil ... deadly evil for some.
What? You did not get your hociRCard? I thought they sent one to everyone on the forum.

SO where are the pictures? ? ?

You're claiming 4 cloudless days in Vancouver? You can't help your credibility with wild tales like that.

OH wait, Vancouver USA? who knew such a place existed?

City officials have periodically suggested changing the U.S. city's name to Fort Vancouver to reduce confusion with its northern neighbor.

Local nicknames include: "Vantucky" (though the nickname is often used as a derogatory term)"[9][10][11][12][13][14][15] and "The 'Couv(e)".[16] In 2013, the nickname "Vansterdam" surfaced as a result of the legalization of marijuana in the state of Washington. This nickname has also long been used to refer to Vancouver, B.C., as well.
We should just extend the border south and make them all one city.

That's right. Went to the country that invents all the games they export to the rest of the world so the rest of the world can usually beat them at something. The latest is rugby. Motoring here is a bit of a sport with narrow high speed roads that feel like driving down a tunnel, and watch out for on-coming at the narrow bridges, especially the ones with enough of a hump to get airborne at 50mph.

Ummm...George Vancouver? The city is sited near the furthest penetration upriver on the Columbia by British Navy Lt. William Broughton in 1792. He was commander of the HMS Chatham sailing as part of George Vancounver's 1791 expedition to the Pacific. He had led a contingent of men some 100 miles from the sea in the ship's longboat mapping and claiming land for Britain. The site of the current city was a point of land that Broughton named for his commander, George Vancouver. When Hudson's Bay Company traders established a fort at the site in 1825, they named it Ft. Vancouver after Broughton's original name for the place.

This was almost 30 years before that city to the north of the same name was founded under its original name of "Gastown" after a local fellow named nick-named "Gassy Jack". Strangely, Broughton was there as well and lent his name to several geographical features in the Canadian city's vicinity. To be fair, Vancouver and Broughton explored the region around the northern Vancouver some months before Broughton's excursion up the Columbia.

So, while our Vancouver is smaller, it has the more direct historical link to the famous explorer and is also the older of the two cities. Why those people to the north insisted on copying the name and creating all of the confusion is beyond me. For example, it was very upsetting to local Vancouver, Washington innkeepers to find that reservations made in anticipation of the 2010 Winter Olympics were actually intended for the city further north. As a city, we were devastated.

You would think...I uploaded the photo and then looked at my hand and was able to confirm that my palm was not indeed wrinkly like that. I can only surmise and conclude that the hand was munged somehow by the Flickr software on upload and/or they substituted the palm of a zombie individual for my more substantial and firm flesh.

Bells are actually required on bikes in Norway. Along with front and back reflectors and lights. You can actually get fined for not having one.

Ditto in France, according to my better half ... I pay no attention to stuff like that.
