Introduction to traditional Quebecois cuisine.

Went to the yearly get-together at my uncle's house last night. He usually makes delicious spaghetti sauce, but in the last few years he seems to have concluded that we're sick of his spaghetti, because, you know, we have it once a year and all. So he's gotten creative. Yesterday's meal was provided by his girlfriend, who is a dyed-in-the-wool Saguenay/Lac St-Jean Quebecoise.

She made cipaille, which is like the Quebec meat pie you hear typically about, except with about 900% more weird gamey meat, and a strange ulcerous hole in the top. I'm not a big meat-eater, and I came home feeling so sick I was convinced we were all about to have a super fun night of food poisoning. Turns out I was the only one who felt sick, and the pill I took to deal with that (at 11 o'clock last night) is still making me feel totally stoned 18 hours later.

On that note, how do you feel about the following?

There is a certain bathroom at my office where someone keeps leaving religious leaflets and postcards with honest-to-Hades handwritten bible verses on the back. Not just on the counter, but on the mirrors and in the stalls tucked into the toilet paper dispensers. Now, I am about one postcard away from pulling out a red Sharpie and scribbling, "This is inappropriate - people are trying to masturbate in here!" underneath the bible quotes.

Good idea, or totally inadvisable? Help me out here - I've lost all perspective.
