Oil versus Tar

04/30/08 | by Adam | Categories: Canadian

While working on a site up in Fort McMurray a few weeks back, I referred to the awful brewed coffee in the office as "tar sands sludge."

I was then politely, but quite clearly, corrected. It is in fact "oil sands sludge" as only dirty hippies and environmentalists use the other term.

Who knew?

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
