Yellowknife makes Fail Blog

It seems a quote in one of the issues of the Yellowknifer has made it into FailBlog.org. I wont comment of the quote, but I must admit is a rather funny, although I’m not sure how out of context it really is. I feel bad for Const. Scaplen, I hope he sees the humour in it like everyone else.

It is light hearted and funny. Don’t you think?

  • What’s the “fail” in it? It can’t be that Constable Scaplen has a sense of humour. It must be that the Yellowknife RCMP are getting calls about pigs. That’s pretty ridiculous. Who calls the police about pig sightings?

    • I believe it went from a ‘non-story’ to a ‘story’ when numerous people called the police about a loose pig. That’s the story and yes, it was meant to be hilarious and not taken seriously.

      Todd made the comment with full knowledge it was a funny things to say and was trying to shed light on the humour of the situation.

      It seems like some of you are taking the story too seriously. It’s a community newspaper and we right about community news. Sometimes stories aren’t about serious issues with government, city hall, social issues, etc., they touch on the lighter side of what is happening in Yellowknife.

      It might be a non-story to some of you, but it’s also a story we got a lot of feedback about because of it’s hilarity.

      • …and before anyone makes a point of it, I used the wrong word, I meant write, not right. Changed thoughts.

          • Well, I understand why the writer would be sensitive about this. I mean, it ended up on FailBlog. That sucks. I honestly don’t think it’s a fail, though. (“Win” is probably over-reaching, but definitely not “fail”.) It’s a silly topic and the guy’s obviously trying to be funny.
