Loose translation for the rotten piss of a drunken francophone in a bottle with the canoe you guys like is "end of the world"



BZZZZZZZZZZT. You just won the Camels Behind Door Number Three RyanD.

The guys in the canoe are for the beer MAUDITE
More points if you know the myth why the canoe is flying. More points still if you know the building in the background and why it's significant.

La Fin Du Monde is the one with la belle province in bright hi-lite in the centre of the label.

Sheesh.

Tami! Called out- damn your right no canoe on "end of the world" I had it mixed up with that other french piss. What can i say, not a fan of that stuff :-) Haha I did get the translation right at least, hopefully those camels got filters.




The word “Maudite” refers here to the Legend of “Chasse-Galerie” a tribute to the early lumberjacks of Nouvelle-France. The legend tells of eight daring woodsmen who, during winter, yearned to be home for the Holidays. They conjured up the Devil and all of them pledged their soul in return for flying them in their canoe to their village. As they sailed across the moonlit sky, one of them managed to free himself from the pledge by invoking the name of God, which caused the flying canoe to come crashing down to earth.

Two Canadian pennies here.

It was Old Fernie Beer in cans that we bought from the package store in Radium Hot Springs to take back to the A-frame tourist lodge in Edgewater after we finished drinking at the National Park Hotel bar. We were not experienced beer drinkers, just pretty drunk from free beers the locals bought us in return for fighting a lame fire out in the damp woods.

I was searching the Googly net and came up with this about the town of Fernie in the Kootenay. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernie,_British_Columbia

Talk about a hellish fire! You Canadians are tougher than Texas steak when it's done right.

Time for some Glenlivet. Fuch old ferns.
