Toque....

You know...you hit a bong...toque a blunt...right?

Favorite line from "Dazed and Confused"

"Somebody's tokin' some reefer"

Second favorite line from "Dazed and Confused"

"I only came here to kick some ass and drink some beer...we're almost outta beer."

It's a knit ski-type hat.

Here's Shania Twain wearing one (a particularly ugly one) at the Grey Cup halftime show on Sunday.

That's what I love about high school girls...I get older, but they stay the same age.

It is...

But then, maybe it's something else in SouthWest... or...

Maybe Tex has had one too many tokes (not toques).

toboggan



sled



They are different. Most toboggans are sleds, but not all sleds are toboggans.

I was being facetious-

but, yes, typically I've heard them called toboggans or beanies- but the idea or wearing a sled type thing on the head does seem quite odd.

On-Topic - Congrats Tran! Welcome to the clube.

Off Topic - One of my hugest pet peeves is when people call sledding (or sliding) "Sleigh Riding"!!!! It's NOT sleigh riding, that involves horses or reindeer. my husband is guilty of this and it always makes me crazy.

To me the word toque became part of my vocabulary when I first saw Strange Brew....

I just did a search on your club there (from home). Here is a site that may help you plan your visit, donk.
