There once was a man from Lethbridge,
Whose noggin' was quite short on knowledge.
His hat went asunder,
Under a trailer,
He ended up part of a sandwich.

Did that article really say "dived" instead of "dove"? Is that proper Canadian? This isn't just some weird Newfie joke, is it?

It was only a hat. He could have waited or bought a new hat.

Must have been a "Starter" cap...

...wasn't it a decade ago when kids were killing folks to obtain their venerable "Starter" wear?
