I mentioned I was in the Queen City yesterday. Did I see a picture of Cellino of Cellino and Barnes on a Cellino Plumbing truck? Twin? Side gig?

It's Ross Cellino's brother, who looks a lot like his brother the attorney. I think his name is Tony?

 

The law firm definitely bank rolled him early on (tons of marketing, new fleet of red white and blue trucks, familiar sound to the "flush" jingle (same writer?)). The idea appeared to be to grab market share, which was not a bad business plan since residential plumbing is good steady work and the providers seemed to be dozens of small outfits. Roy's also joined the fray.

 

But is the law firm being advertised on the trucks, too?

No, it must have been Tony. Wow, this board is plumbing new depths now.

I saw one of those a few years back and did a triple-take. My parents explained what the deal was.

First off, that snickers pun is just downright amazing. Well done

Secondly, peanuts were tiny but they were well worth the payday

I'm pretty sure it means cleaning up all the boxes and wrapping paper, etc that comes from unwrapping gifts. Seems like the perfect excuse for an extra day off work to me. I think it also celebrates giving a gift box to service indusry type people like servants, door men, post office types, etc.

Actually, we celebrate by stepping into the ring with the neighbour or coworker who pissed us off the most during the year. Wipe out the animosity and start the year with a clean slate.

It's the real reason why Canadians are so easy going.

Late entry for post of the year, eh!

 

Very nice and 100% accurate, as well.  So, it's also an educational post for our friends south of the border.

How hilarious would it be if the predominant religion practiced by humans in 5,000 years was Festivianity, and Cosmo was their messiah. Stranger things have happened. Wrong thread?

Existing organized religion is losing participation at a pretty rapid pace in recent history. We are certainly trending towards a different world going forward.
