Float Your Fanny Down The Ganny

That’s right, Gadget and I are teaming up with PXL Cross-linked Foam and building a raft for the annual Float Your Fanny Down The Ganny race. I was excited because I love the thought of capsizing in frigid waters, so I wasn’t thinking about details and other shit that are rather important when planning a job like this. That was when he asked a question that I hadn’t even thought about.

“How many people do you want to have on the team, so I know how big to design this for?”

Up until that point I thought I’d just be lucky if he would join me, but then I thought, maybe other people would like to be on Change The Topic’s Crazy Craft.

Doesn't that look fun? I think we should have something a little more top heavy.

So here is where I ask you, my friends and readers, whether or not you want to join us in our quest to dominate ten kilometers of the testicle-shrinking Ganaraska River on April 6, in the year of your lord 2013? It promises to be a day of early drinking, street meat, and if we can fund raise enough, we could buy the whole team those little bum buttons and a peameal on a kaiser.

Look within yourselves, good readers, and contact us in one of the 13 ways that are available. There were 14, but it’s too cold for homing pigeons right now, so that’s off the table.

I think that their shirts say “Fail Boat”

We are also in the market for a building supply company to partner with, for whatever other things we’ll need to put this behemoth together. Probably some sort of fastening devices, but we won’t know until we get into our design meetings. Maybe I should head back down to Puerto Plata with him next week. You know, because we did our best thinking there last year.

So anyhow, if you don’t know about the famous flood in Port Hope, Ontario, back in 1980, go to the website for the race and do a bit of research. They have the history there and all kinds of cool photos. School yourselves, people. No one else is going to do it for you. Well, I guess teachers will, and people who train you at a new job, but other than that? Almost no one.

Well I built me a raft and she’s ready for float,

  1. I would LOVE to be on the team! I wish I loved closer to be able to participate in all the floating fun! And since I don’t have nuts to shrink (yet) I think I would be a good team mate! PLus, after living up here most of my life, I don’t think the cold water would bother me that much.

    Let me know how I can help out anyway.
