I laughed at the apology at the end of the video. Bagged milk actually does seem like a good idea. I wonder why we don't do that? And I'm gonna visit you guys for some poutine; that sounds awesome. But screw the metric system.

Holy shit, KFC actually is written K'ehFC on their Canada website!

Actually, we did, back when I was young. I distinctly remember having to put the bag in a pitcher, and cut the corner.

If you screwed it up, you made a mess, the corner cut was not always accurate, and when pouring, the bag could collapse at a certain fullness, causing a spill. The bags were easy to puncture accidentally, and you had to think fast to save most of it if that happened. If you didn't seal the opening with a clip, the milk got refrigerator smells embedded in it, and tasted bad if you didn't finish it in a day or so. Once the level was down a bit, the clip was hard to reach to open again. (The pitchers were narrow oval shaped) In general, they were just a PITA to use. As an adult, maybe those things are minor, but younger kids are not always very coordinated (or careful). We cried a lot over spilled milk...

I'm leading a parade and then going in the Dunk Tank down at my branch of the Legion.

Plus, the argument over whether clear glass, opaque plastic, or solid cardboard "protects" the milk longer from light and exposure.

It takes me a week just to get through one half-gallon, and I solidly subscribe to the Cardboard theory.

Except maybe here in Toronto. We don't really get winter here, might have take the maple leaves and beavers off our sleeves

Happy Canada Day, Joy. Indeed, it has been awhile since you've been present on the forums.
