If I find one of these...



In my change, I'm throwing it in the garbage.

I'd literally be throwing money ... into the garbage.

But it has to be done. Thanks, but no thanks, Royal Canadian Mint.

Go Leafs go.

UPDATE: I've come to my senses. (I'm sure many of you have been waiting for me to write that.) Well, sort of. Any Canadiens loonies that come my way will be donated to charity. Let some good come out of the despicable coins.

Right on. $1 is a small price to pay for your pride.

Isn't it weird for the Royal Canadian Mint to honour a franchise and fanbase that probably universally hates the monarchy?

I'd take your Habs loonies. I could use money.

That would be an amusing fund-raising gimmick for the Leafs Fund For Kids.

I wonder what the Queen thinks of all this...I bet she isn't happy being associated with a flailing team in amidst a tanking economy.

PPP: $1 is a small price to pay for your pride. And that's a good point about the Mint. Makes no bloody sense.

LD: I'll save my Habs loonies for you. When you come to Toronto, we'll use them to buy you booze.

LJ: Another excellent idea.

BK: The Queen's pissed.

Loser Domi said...

We could start up a fund :"Get LD to toronto" all proceeds go directly to my stay, tickets in and around TO and booze

eyebleaf said...

Let's do it, LD. We'll start a Loonie Revolution.

When are you expected around these parts, anyway?

Loser Domi said...

the original plan was april 21 (right after exam), but now I dunno if I'll have enough money to get there :(

eyebleaf said...

Keep us Toronto folk in the loop, LD. Loonie collection is underway.

They actually were giving these as change at the Bell Centre yesterday night. I got two. Hate the Habs as much as you like, the coins are still nicer then that Monopoly money you call currency.

DeeLikes: Another excellent screen name.

Showcase: That's a fucking fantastic idea.

Scotty: At least we own our Monopoly money currency. China owns yours.
