Two guys who’d been hired to give out free tickets to Calgary’s Stampede (their rodeo, except to call it a rodeo is like calling the Olympics a sporting event, it’s *big*) approached an American couple and asked if the couple had been to Stampede yet. Upon getting no response, they looked at each other puzzled, then asked the question again, thinking maybe the couple hadn’t understood.
The American man then rudely snarled, “Gentlemen, I have no need to talk with you, goodbye”, and moved away, staying between the ticket-givers and his wife. The ticket-givers looked puzzled, and then moved on to find someone else who wanted tickets and had some bit of courtesy, unlike those rude Americans.
End of story, except… well: Here is the photograph of the American man in the above story:
Yes, we’re talkinga bout Officer Walt Wawra of Kalamazoo, Michigan, who was upset, upset I say, that in Canada he wasn’t allowed to pack his gun and one bullet to deal with those pesky ticket-givers if they’d been packing heat instead of Stampede tickets.
Well, we know one person who doesn’t have big clangin’ brass ones, and that’s Officer Walt Wawra of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Marshmallows, marshmallows I say. Miniature marshmallows. That is all.
