I decided to finish this post finally,
I have a few hours in Frankfurt and am sitting in the same business lounge where I read the famous Canadian joke:
Two Canadians are sitting in a bar getting bored, so they decide to play twenty questions. The first Canadian tries to think of a subject for his friend to guess and, after a little pondering, comes up with “moose cock.” He tells his friend he’s ready to play.
“OK,” says the second Canadian. “Is it something good to eat?”
The first Canadian thinks for a moment, and replies, “Sure, I guess you could eat it.”
The second Canadian says, “Is it moose cock?”
Now, you have to imagine the original circumstance – 7am in Frankfurt Airport, in a business lounge, sitting in dirty jeans and a t-shirt, surrounded by German business men awaiting their flights to Hannover or whereever, laughing hysterically to myself at this joke that is quintessentially Canadian, hoping no one asks me what I am laughing at… re-living those circumstances some 5-6 years later, I actually laughed without having to read the joke again.
The moral of the story is simple: moose cock is funny, no matter where you are!
