            13. Big Joe Mufferaw

            As immortalized by Stompin’ Tom Connors:

            Big Joe Mufferaw paddled in to Mattawa
            All the way from Ottawa just one day, Hey, Hey
            On the river Ottawa the best man we ever saw
            Was Big Joe Mufferaw the old folks say
            Come an' listen I'll tell ya what the old folks say

            And they say Big Joe had an old pet frog
            Bigger than a horse an' he barked like a dog
            And the only thing quicker than a train upon a track
            Was Big Jow ridin' on the bullfrog's back

            An' they say Big Joe used to get real wet
            From cuttin' down timber and workin' up a sweat
            An' everyone will tell ya around Carleton Place
            The Mississippi dripped off Big Joe's face

            Now Joe had to portage from the Gatineau down
            To see a little girl he had in Kemptville town
            He was back and forth some many times to see that gal
            The path he wore became the Rideau Canal

            An' they say Big Joe put out a forest fire
            Halfway between Renfrew and ol' Arnprior
            He was fifty miles away down around Smith Falls
            But he drowned out the fire with five spit balls

            Well he jumped in the Calabogie lake real fast
            He swam both ways to catch a cross eyed bass
            But he threw in on the ground and said "I can't eat that"
            So he covered it over with mount Saint Pat

            An' they say Big Joe drank a bucket of Gin
            And he beat the livin' tar outta twenty-nine men
            And high on the ceiling of the Pembroke pub
            There's twenty-nine boot marks and they're signed with love

              You silly Canuck: now that you've posted No 13, the next 13 is your call. What do you need, an engraved invitation?

                Patience now Slicky, can't always get to it right away 'cause I am at work, and every once in a while I've got to do other things like...well like work!

                OK, got an idea and it's a good segue from this and another thread...

                      Are you referring to the 2011 edition -- or the 1994 version. I'm partial to the '94 myself, but then again, I am a bit biased.

                      And yes: I can top that for sheer and unspeakable stupidity.

                      2. New York City Draft Riots (July 1863)

                      3. Astor Place Opera House Riots (May 1849)



                      All of that to decide who was the greatest thespian of the day.

                        Oh yeah, I forgot, that would have been series against Rangers. I went with the most recent.

                        Several dead and a large number of wounded over who was better actor? hmmmm I didn't think I would say it but yes I think yours definately surpassess BC's in sheer stupidity. I humbly bow to your city's superior riot-idiocy-ness!
