Dinosaur Bones in Canadian Sewer: The Real Story™


The Ball Bounces brings you The Real Story™ behind the headlines.

Canadians have a reputation for being nice, and Canada has a reputation for being clean.

How clean?

Glad you asked.

Came across a story today about Edmonton sewer workers finding a dinosaur bone in the Edmonton sewer system.  Now, I'm all in favor of finding dinosaur bones, but the real story is this: anybody notice how clean this Canadian sewer system is??!!

Notice the gothic-shaped tunnel, the men on their knees -- while in other sewers workers pray to get out, these guys could be praying to stay in! While in other sewers you give up your lunch, in this system, you can eat your lunch! While in other systems, you have to change your clothes when you get back up to the top, in this one, you just wear them home and then out for dinner!

It's like Ed Norton died and went to heaven!

Canada should have a contest -- city with the cleanest sewers.

I think Edmonton would win, hands-down!

(Chest puffed out) Well since you mentioned it... Actually I walk by that sewer dig almost daily however due to the fear of 'pride going before a fall' I regret to say that the reason the sewers are so clean is because they have never been used. That and the fact that they are basically catchment basins so we can clean the storm water before we allow it into the North Saskatchewan River.

Catchment basin? Eeyikes! Next Frances will be telling me that this the source of Alberta bottled water.

Sewerwater™ -- "taking recycling to its extreme"™

There's probably a market for it!
