If I lived in Alberta I would go postal on somebody's ass:

Bailey's second law; There is no relationship between the three virtues of intelligence, education, and wisdom.

You fiend! Never have I encountered such corrupt and foul-minded perversity! Have you ever considered a career in the Church? - The Bishop of Bath and Wells, Blackadder II

So, how come the Holocaust deniers are not allowed to take their kids out of History classes?

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Alberta is kinda like a Canadian Texas. Richer than just about everyone else and arrogantly and densely self-righteous about it. Let us not forget that this is the same province that recently entertained legislation to make bigfoot an endangered species. And, of course, they are constantly talking about leaving Canada...

Funniest thing I know of that's come from Alberta: Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans.
