The Stolen Cow Caper
How a bunch of idiots stole a big bulky 800lbs thing because it was cool
Back in my troubled youth, my friends and I used to like stealing things. Not your typical stolen stuff, like stereos, shoplifting and the like, but unusual items, such as lawn ornaments, certain boxes that sit by the side of the road, (hey, I didn't participate in that, I swear!), and other assorted sundry that people don't expect to be stolen. Some items in our stolen loot included bar chairs, bar stools, signage, glasses of all types, pitchers, and more.
The highlight of our stolen spree came during my first year at University. The object - a cow. The people involved - us, the police, the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, and a very disgruntled furniture shop owner.
A Night in the Market
What Drunks will Do
Ottawa's Byward Market is well known, since it's one of the premier attractions of that city. It features farmers selling their goods during the day, and good entertainment at night, with all the street performers, interesting collage of nightclubs, restaurants, and pubs, and many people wandering about. Back in the late 80s, the Market was the focal point for night entertainment, before the 1am exodus to the bars in Hull. One memorable night involved the usual pub hopping, but with a lot of strange twists.
