    Default Canoeing - Is it Just me?

    Everytime I see the word canoeing, canoe, or any of its connotations, I cannot help thinking about that hilarious canoeing thread that was not about canoeing but, well, if you read it, you know. I get this silly smile and start laughing to myself because that thread was priceless.

    Anyone else have a thread which just the thought about, makes you bust up laughing or at least snicker?

    DH asked if I wanted to try canoeing shortly after that OT day. I had to leave the room I was laughing so hard.

    Check out the first Grammy nominee for Best Children's Album in 2013:

    That would be the Okee Dokee Brothers with..........Can You Canoe?

    That's just WRONG!

    ETA: from the review on that website - "I’m on record as calling Can You Canoe? the greatest album for families ever made!"

    Just spat my lunch on the laptop.
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    I can't ever see anything about "Inverness" without thinking and giggling about "The Inverness Problem"

    My friends (husband and wife) who do lots of outdoor activities were having a long conversation on Facebook about canoes and canoeing. Reading it in the COTH context I could not stop laughing. It was extra hilarious when he made some comment about going canoeing keeps him happy, which keeps the wife happy

    Same here, I think I posted on the other thread how it had been adopted by my crew, and they optimisticly added pontooning to their vocab . A boys gotta dream I guess lol.

    My husband and my supervisor also know the new meaning of canoeing, and they were at a dinner with several people above their pay grade and my husband was very nervous, it was his first time in that type of situation. So to make him laugh my supervisor asked him if he had been canoeing lately

    I've heard this on the radio also. One time I burst out laughing and my DH was like, what? I said it's a Coth joke, and he just rolled his eyes.

    Boyfriend asked if I wanted to go canoeing in the mountains over Valentine's Weekend. Couldn't understand why I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe
