So the building's really dead and you guys lied to me?
We just did it to protect you, Ted.
I can't believe this.I just got screwed by my two best friends, and I didn't even know it.
In Canada, that's called a Sneaky Snowplow.
That building was my dream job, and now, it's just gone.
We're so sorry, Ted.
I need a drink.
Poor Ted.Would I seem heartless if I switched us back to Canadian Sex Acts?
Not at all.
I'm surprised you waited this long.
What the hell is a Two-Hand Zamboni?
Let's just say the only thing the woman is wearing is skates on her hands.
A Manitoba Milk Bag?
Okay, it's like a Chicago Mustache, but the person on the bottom is wearing a snowsuit.
A Newfoundland Lobster Trap?
Don't know.Don't want to know.Those Newfies are out of control.
Okay! Okay, I'm going to make my first guess.
Okay, but I'll only tell you if you correctly guess the person, the act and the collection.
Okay, I'm going to go.Bryan Adams.He collects baseball cards, and he wanted to do a Greasy Kayak.
Wayne Gretzky, vintage Hot Wheels, a Squatting Eskimo.
Mmm! Kiefer Sutherland, souvenir shot glasses, and a Sticky Flapjack.
No.That I would have done.
Wait.Wait, if they pulled the plug on the project a month ago, why have I been going in once a week to meet with the New Headquarters Task Force?
pull the plug on 撤退する
Well, obviously you couldn't come in and pitch to Bilson.
So, we invented the task force.Then it was just a question of putting together the team.You know Roy Waterman, Vice-President of Capital and Risk? He's actually Roy the janitor.
Hey.Excuse me, Roy.How'd you like to make a few extra bucks?
How naked do I have to get?
Louisa Mendoza, Executive Vice-President of Assets? She's actually Louisa the lunch lady.
Louisa, I need your help with something, but you can't tell anybody.Exactly.This is a big secret.How do you say secret in Spanish? Ah.Yes, albondigas.This will be our little albondigas.Hey, can I have a couple of meatballs, please?
And Arthur Naismith, the eccentric genius guru of corporate investments? He's actually Crazy Arty, 15th Streets own one-man band.
Do you have a minute to talk?
Actually, my assistant, Reginald, makes all my appointments.
We rounded out the group with a few interns and paid everyone 50 bucks to act super-interested in what you were saying.
round out 締めくくる
Reginald, get me out of this for next week.
That was some of the most inspired design work I've done in my entire career.I was so excited.
Alex Trebek, a Musty Goaltender, Beanie Babies!
So that explains the thing that happened with Louisa.
Good job, buddy.
Listen, Louisa.What are we going to do about this? Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about.I know you feel it, too.What the hell? No! No! No, this is wrong! For God's sake, you're on the task force!
Is there anything else you want to tell me?
Well, you know how you played third base for the GNB softball team?
There is no GNB softball team.We just rented out a field, rounded up a bunch of guys and told them to make you the hero.
So my game-winning walk was a lie?
We're sorry, Ted, but we knew that you'd be out of work soon, and we just We just wanted to make you feel good.You know, that's what friends do.
Lie to each other?
Sometimes, yeah, to protect each other's feelings.
No way! You never lie to your friends.I would never not be honest with you.
Really? What about that open mic night at the comedy club?
Are you like me, folks? Have you ever thought about how many different kinds of fish there are, and the names of those fish? Let's, uh, let's take a little ride.Trout.Am I right? Sturgeon.I don't think so, pal.Salmon.Ah! I'm going to say that again.Salmon.Who thought that was a good idea, right? Bass.This guy over here knows what I'm talking about.Halibut.Thank you, good night.How was I?
Oh! You were great.Really funny.
You killed everyone's Thursday night.
Time out.You didn't like the fish list?
It was horrible! You just read a list of fish.
Anyway, you guys just proved my point, okay? You lied to me to protect my feelings.
This is completely different! I just wasted a month of my life working on a dead project.That's time I could've spent trying to bring my firm new business.Instead, I'm going to go in there tomorrow morning, I'm probably going to get fired.Best-case scenario, my boss is going to ream me out in front of everybody.
ream out 叱りつける
Back home, we call that a
Saskatoon Totem Pole.
Yes.It's on here.
