At Least We’re Tryin’

Sometimes New Brunswick does not come off as the coolest of Canada’s Provinces. Or even Territories. Quebec is Cool because they’re French and don’t really care what the rest of Canada thinks. Ontario has that REALLY tall tower. Newfoundland and Dwayne Johnson share the nickname the Rock. BC has Pot. Lots of Pot. I could go on, but the general theme I’m getting at is we may not be the coolest Province, but at least we’re tryin’.

We Got Trees, Baby

If there is one thing we have not shortage of in New Brunswick, it trees. The Forestry Sector in NB is one of the Major supporters to our economy. We have had Sawmills and Pulp and Paper Mills all over this Province. If your in NB you’re never far from the woods.

Although this plate is a little Tongue-In-Cheek, the Forestry Industry is very important to New Brunswick. We would do well to remember this, and treat this beautiful Land with Care and Respect.

North Star Sports Bar Memorial Plate

Fredericton is soon to be in a Sad State. It is losing it’s only strip club. The North Star Sports Bar, located on Fredericton’s North Side.

The city is buying the Property under the Guise of Saving us from the Hell’s Angel, who it has been reported, were interested in the Premises. I have no idea if this is true, and frankly, I don’t give a shit. What kind of city has No Strip Club.

The club was never known as a High Class Strip Bar. The Logo itself was an obvious rip-off of the Minnesota North Star’s Logo. Not only was it a strip bar, but a Pub that served food. Are Crabs on the Menu today? And after an inspection of the property the City found the Area to be Contaminated. Insert VD joke Here. But one thing the North Star did do well was keep the Province’s Capital City one more step away from becoming a very Conservative, Uptight, Yuppie Utopia.

City By-Laws will keep any other Strip Clubs from popping up anytime in the foreseeable future. So this is goodbye North Star. You will be missed.

Dooryard

This plate is dedicated to the word Dooryard. I had no idea, until probably 5 years ago, that this word is almost never heard outside of Carleton County NB. It’s mostly just another word for yard.

There is even a Dooryard Beer made by the fantastic Brewing Co. out of Fredericton NB, Picaroons. DRINK IT!!!

Another good word is piss-cut. Or as my co-worker says piss-cuttin-er. It means to go fast. ‘He was just piss-cuttin-er down the road’ for example.
