Mounties and Chips (actually, we had rosti, they're nicer)

Was watching University Challenge on the tv (americans, think College Bowl), when a question about The Britsh and American Act being the basis of the constitution of which country came up. Of course, I got it right, it was Canada.

Dosk: You're obsessed with Canada
Me: Mmmhmm
Dosk: You're obsessed with Mounties. You're going to catch one one day, and it will turn out to be a Turnbull and you'll throw him back...
Me: Nu-uh
Me: we're going to catch them with big nets
Dosk: What about a bear trap?
Me: That will hurt them...
Dosk: With the teeth taken off and heavily padded
Me: Hmmm
Dosk: And then the red in their suits will run in the wash and they'll lose their Mountie essence.

ENTER OBLIGATORY QUESTION ABOUT THE SPEED OF LIGHT, WHICH I GET RIGHT SINCE DOSK THINKS THE ANSWER IS THE ASTRONOMICAL CONSTANT, THEN DOSK ATTEMPTS TO TELL ME WHAT THE SPEED OF LIGHT ACTUALLY IS AND WHAT IT DOES, SO I BLANK OUT...

Me: This is so going in my journal.
Dosk: Why? You never put any of my interesting facts in there, just the thing about Garak and...
Me: Because my journal people aren't interested in the speed of light, they're interested in Mounties...
