    @1: Well, yeah. DeGiorno is not delivery, so it can get to your house in 0.0 minutes, and is just as good if not better, but the closest you can get with injuries is a first aid kit. Yet it sucks compared to the real deal!
    @2: What? You never heard of tobagan wheelchairs? They're pretty popular up here in Canadaland!
    @6: Woodwork tools are certainly not worthless! You can make wood things with them! Like containers! Or fences! Or all sorts of things!
    @8: It's in Canadaland too. Wait, or do hot dogs come in tens, and buns come in twelves? Eights and twelves...tens and tens...shit! I forgot!
    @9: That's not how compound words work.

    Yeah, it's not like people like to watch or anything. Everyone who goes to a skating rink skates.



    I liked #3, sad as it is.

    2--I don't get it. You can take wheelchairs out on the ice, and not everyone who uses handicapped stickers is in a wheelchair either. My dad has one because he has a bad back.
    To say nothing of spectators or perhaps it's someone else in the car.

    So no, I'm not seeing how that's supposedly a useless thing or any sort of irony.
