This year the rain in the prairies created some interesting seeding and harvesting situations. The website is a humorous look at some swear worthy scenarios. Oh, the winner wins some tow ropes. ;)

Love it - a whole website dedicated to vehicles getting bogged.

I just love the regional differences in language use. Here we would say "bogged down" rather than just "bogged".

Sort of like "pissed". Here if you are pissed it usually just means you are drunk. If you mean that someone is upset/mad about something generally you would say instead they are "pissed off".

On a mud related note - it was impossible also here in some areas of the neighbouring province to get on the fields at all this summer - some had standing water all year. Of course that didn't stop the local officials from stupidly trying to enforce the weed by-laws. As you can imagine weeds were impossible to control but still some of the "city folk" who have moved out to surrounding rural areas complained about them. Many of these areas have by-laws that if the property owner doesn't take care of the weeds themselves that the municipality will, then bill them on their taxes. So with the complaints of the former townies and the land-owners not wanting to damage their expensive machines, some of the poor municipal workers were sent out to try to take care of the weeds with disastrous results. Guess it took all their equipment being stuck in the mud and out of commission to shut the townies up for a while. :lol:
