Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian Weregeeks! Hope your holiday has been as splendid as mine! We’ve had absolutely beautiful fall weather here in Edmonchuck – in the low twenties, with just a hint of coolness in the air to remind you that Winter Is Coming.

I have spent the holiday so far lazing around, catching up on some for-fun drawing, and playing Ocarina of Time for the thousandth time. (It’s still awesome.)

Tomorrow, the Halloween storyline ramps back up, and this time it’s less sappy and more spooky, so stay tuned!

    Thank the Goddess for Canadians! They help keep the United States from getting too full of itself. Or at least they try! Yay!

    I see no Colin Mochrie. That is unacceptable.

    However, The Cat Came Back is awesome, so all is forgiven.

  4. And a good Thanksgiving to you, Alina!! 🙂

    …wait, what? “WereGeek” doesn’t take place IN Canada, but somewhere in the States?? I am confused and disappointed.

    Ah we finaly find out that Were Geek is in America its nice to know was kinda confused Honestly. I imagine it’s some were in upstate NY as before the turn of the Century NY and Canada had a pretty liquid border.

    I agree with MerchManDan I had always thought our geeks were Canuckles.
    If not Canadian perhaps from a city I have found that has a attitude much like our own, and is well known to be a strong geek culture; Seattle or perhaps from a city near there

  10. *raises hand* One quibble here. “Canadian Bacon” although it did star John Candy, god rest his merry soul, it was produced and filmed by Michael Moore an American. I would have used a still for SCTV which launched a lot of Canadian comedians into Hollywood….But that’s just me. Happy Thanksgiving. 🙂

    We’re in the high 20s here in northern Ontario. Must be the nicest Thanksgiving weather we’ve had for awhile.

    And to answer the unasked question Americans have about Canadian Thanksgiving, here in Canada, we don’t celebrate pilgrims or the Mayflower or such. In Europe, there are 2 end of harvest festivals, one at roughly the equinox (end of grain and veggie harvest and commonly known as Harvestfest), and the other we’ve come to know as Halloween (the first frost). But the climate here in Canada is such that the two ended up being merged to a date roughly half way between the two. And that’s Canadian Thanksgiving.

  15. @Sarge: AGREED! Colin should definitely be up there! Technically you might be able to include half of Ryan Stiles, he was born in the US but grew up in Canada.

  16. A friend of mine in Hamilton refers to it as “Metric Thanksgiving”.

    Having just gotten hooked on Moosehead Stew in the last three weeks, I had been running under the assumption that Weregeek was set in Canada, too. Certainly, the reports I get from my Hamiltonian friend indicate that geek culture there is at least as well-established and organized as it is here in the San Francisco Bay area.

    I share everyone’s surprise to find that the strip’s set on the south side of the border.

    What feat lets you remove oven mitts in order to weild a wooden spoon in defense of desserts? That’s a pretty impressive move.
    Also, many Americans thank us for providing the world with real beer rather than the American stuff that’s like making love in a canoe.

    Just commenting on what Joel was saying –

    He needs to head over to tvtropes.com and look up the entry on “So Bad It’s Good” – of which Rocky Horror (the movie that the strip seems based on” is a Ur-example.
