Fun with cultural stereotypes

From Robert Priest's account of his trip to St. John's in Now magazine:
This just wouldn't happen in Toronto, I marvel to myself. The literati wouldn't dream of reciting aloud at a party...
And thank god for that. Literary parties are bad enough as it is.

I can't wait for Priest's reports from Vancouver:
No one back in Uptightville, Ontario, would dream of breaking off in the middle of a meeting to smoke a doobie and go kayaking...

You know, I had exactly the same thought when I read the Now piece.
