All I want for Christmas is … camo?

Just recently a new Cabela’s opened up in Ottawa. For anyone not in the know, Cabela’s is essentially a big-box store selling everything any hunter, fisherman, or general outdoorsman (and the female variants of same) could ever want. And most of it is in camouflage so that, one assumes, if you ever put it down in the woods you’d never find it again and so would have to purchase a replacement – at Cabela’s of course.

Which brings me, in a rather roundabout way, to this conversation over-heard at a local Timmies.
Guy 1. Have you been to the new Cabela’s yet? 
Guy 2. No, but they’ve got their pre-Christmas sales on right now so maybe I’ll stop by and pick up some camo underwear for the girlfriend for Christmas. 
Guy 1. It better be for your girlfriend; your wife would shoot you if you ever gave her something like that.


  1. Camo underwear for the girl friend...? I'd like to shoot him, too ;-)

    I guess there is no accounting for taste.

    Happy Holidays, David.

    1. Thanks Sonja, and best wishes to you and Roland as well.

  2. Believe it or not....I have Camo underwear. Happy Holiday's David.

    1. Oops. Season's greeting to you and your's Robert, and all the best for 2017.

  3. Nice.

    I always thought those stores were empty. Turns out it was all camo so I just couldn't see anything.

    Happy Ho Ho to you and the missus David.
