Tebowing gone very wrong
Seventeen-year-old Josh Ehrenberg was mowing the lawn at home in Pennsylvania, just minding his business like any other day. Out of nowhere a bald man wearing glasses drove up in his Chrysler, got out of the car and knocked Ehrenberg off his lawnmower by “close-lining” him. As if that wasn’t weird enough, the guy “Tebowed” after Ehrenberg fell off. For those who don’t know, “Tebowing” is the act of praying just like Tim Tebow, a quarterback for the New York Jets. He always prays before or after he gets off the field. So naturally, you would stop and pray after pushing someone off a lawnmower? Weirdo.
Canadians love Maple Syrup
Millions of dollars worth of maple syrup was stolen from a St. Louis-De-Blandford facility in Quebec leading a lot of people to say “Canada, you had one job and you MESSED IT UP!” The facility holds 10 million pounds of maple syrup for distribution mainly when there are bad years and not enough can be harvested. All I can say is if I don’t have maple syrup on my pancakes this year, because of whoever stole it, I am going to cry! We Canadians love our Maple Syrup!
Women joins search party that is looking for her
A tour group near Eldgja Canyon, Iceland thought they lost a tourist after she got off the bus to freshen up. The woman discreetly returned and joined the search party without realizing they were looking for her the whole time. About 50 people searched for a few hours until they eventually figured it out. That would’ve been pretty embarrassing, how the hell did those people not recognize it was her though? When she changed clothes did she change into a full cat-women costume with a mask or something? I don’t understand.

Adrien Gough and Henry Walter, members of a Canadian band who live in Halifax, wrote the music for the song “Mmm Papi” alongside Montreal’s Peter-John Kerr.
The song is on Britney Spears’ new album “Circus” released yesterday (December 2), coinciding with the pop singer’s 27th birthday.
The trio composed the music under their band name, Let’s Go to War, while one of the singer’s producers, Nicole Morier, wrote the lyrics. She selected the song out of the many tunes the trio sent her through Kobalt Music in Los Angeles.
Spears recently performed songs from “Circus” in New York and plans to complete a 26-city tour. Her first single off the new album (“Womanizer”) reached the N. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart in October.
The next single off her new album is none other than “Circus.” The up-tempo track was produced by Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco.
For those Canadians baffled by the plans Fido and Rogers are offering for the iPhone 3G, I thought I’d offer some perspective by posting what AT&T is charging Americans for purchasing and using the iPhone 3G:
$69.99 for 450 voice minutes, unlimited data and 5000 evening and weekend minutes
$89.99 for 900 voice minutes, unlimited data and unlimited evening and weekend minutes
$109.99 for 1350 voice minutes, unlimited data and unlimited evening and weekend minutes
$129 for unlimited voice, data and evenings and weekends.
Unlimited text can be added for $20/month, $15 for 1500 messages or $5 for 200.
People who have purchased an iPhone before the 3G release will be able to upgrade for $199 (8GB) or $299 (16GB). The iPhone 3G (without the upgrade) will cost AT&T customers $399 for the 8GB model or $499 for the 16GB model. Both phones require a new two-year service agreement with one of the plans mentioned above. AT&T have said that a no-commitment version of the phone will be released, but not until after the initial launch. The no-commitment phones will cost $599 and $699, according to an article that appeared on www.engadget.com.
While the American version of the plans for the iPhone look better than the Canadian ones, consumers will still have to fork over a ton of cash for this techno-gadget. Even on the cheapest plan, users will be paying close to $850 a year to use their phone, and that’s not even including text messaging. That being said, AT&T customers on the ‘cheap plan’ get a lot more than Rogers customers on the comparable plan, which costs only $10 less a month. The cheapest Roger’s plan, at $60/month, offers 150 anytime minutes, 75 outgoing SMS, and 400 MB data, free evenings after 9pm.
