You pussies up in the Ottawa area do little but moan and whine in the
winter. You must be a politician or an uncivilized servant. You'll go
out and skate on the Rideau, but you don't want a dirty windshield to
get there! Try public transit! Go up to Moose Factory for a winter and
then you'll have something to whine about! "frozen nozzles...at least a
couple of times every single winter"! Whoopie Doopie! A couple times
each winter! Big f***ing deal! Get a grip man! Give your head a shake
Huge Goat! You're an embarrasment to your country!
