An alien?

I dare you to walk into a MTL bar and ask for a drink with pickled scary grass.

You will either get a dime bag of weed with your drink, or the drunk barmaid who hasn't shaved in 9 months will start stripping.

I'll call the english people I know in MTL tonight and toss the word at them. Let's see what they come up with.

EDIT:
This reminds me of the time an Ontario woman gave me a recipe for oatmeal cookies.

She tells me i, "have to buy old fashioned rolled oats".

So I go into every single supermarket in existence looking for "rolled oats". None to be found. Finally i'm at wits end and ask the manager of Metro to find me "rolled oats". He looks at me all weird and says that doesn't exist.

After 3 hrs of bugging people and going to every store that exists I gave up and bought Quaker Oatmeal. I then call the woman in Ontario and gave her crap for sending me out to find stuff that doesn't exist. She tells me Quaker oatmeal *IS* rolled oats.

Man... *@^#^ I don't think the word Rolled Oats has existed since the turn of the last century. She laughs at me all the time about this now. "Marc, did you buy rolled oats". &@%#%@

Oatmeal is not necessarily made from rolled oats.. Rolled oats are just that ... oats that have been ground by pressing between rollers.. Oatmeal can be made from rolled oats by grinding it finer; or it can be made from steel cut oats. And to confuse the alien more.. "Oatmeal" can also be used to name the porridge made from oats that are either rolled or ground another way.

Warning to CG forum members! ... MTL bars are full of aliens !

Yeah. I looked up all the types after that incident. Quaker Oats (going by memory) does indeed state old fashioned rolled oats on the side of the bag or something in very small fine print.

I guess they put that there in case someone from the 18th century needs to look for that word. :p

You really must be an alien Marc> I can't believe you've never heard of "Rolled Oats".....

Scary Grass only exists on "The Patio" now OTGF. If you start asking in MTL bars you'll be locked up for sure! :lol:

asparagus = a scary grass?
That's a serious speech impediment, or some serious hearing loss going on there. :shock:

But, this doesn't explain Kelly asking for drinks with a pickle and pickled beans in it. and acting as if this is normal.

That too is some serious weird poop happening. Must be another bad joke.... like toasted rye with smoked meat.

ok. You had me going +1 to you people.

You could have gone to the feed store for rolled oats....the sell em!

And, just to set the record straight...I do not ASK for my caesars to be garnished with awesomeness...they usually just come that way!

Everyone knows what scary grass is!
