This monthly column features a titillating discussion between brothers Norman and Gordon McLuhan from Moose Jaw.
This month’s column is sponsored by Sobey’s. Sobey’s – like No Frills, but with frills.
Norm: Hi, I’m Norm McLuhan, and this is my brother, Gord –
Gord: Hi there.
Norm: – and today we’re gonna discuss, uh, Halloween.
Gord: Spooky, eh?
Norm: Real spooky.
Gord: It’s a McLuhan boys’ tradition to carve Jack-O-Lanterns every year –
Norm: – and every year we try to smash each other’s.
Gord: Wait, what?
Norm: Ya, and every year I win.
Gord: You’re the hoser who keeps smashing my pumpkins?
Norm: Ya didn’t know?
Gord: Aw, my kitty cat Jack-O-Lantern.
Norm: Smashed it worse than when Scott Stevens crushed Paul Kariya in 2003.
Gord: Smashed it worse than when Scott Stevens crushed Eric Lindros in 2000.
Norm: Smashed it worse than when Scott Stevens crushed Ron Francis in 2001.
Gord: Smashed it worse than when Scott Stevens crushed Slava Kozlov in 1995.
Norm: Love Scott Stevens.
Gord: I miss Mr. Whiskers.
Norm: Just a suggestion to all of you: don’t bake your Jack-O-Lanterns into pies.
Gord: Don’t do it, eh. Whiskers was a few weeks past his best before.
Norm: Real shit pie, eh?
Gord: Real shit pie.
Norm: This has been Norm and Gord McLuhan –
Gord: Boo, eh!
Norm: – discussing Spooktober.
