This place is the shit.

Not all towns are created equal,ladies and gentlemen.

Not all towns are created equal.

You guys got a lotof good shit going on here.

First of all, you have winter.

You don't think winter's good,but winter's good.

Winter's important.It builds character.

We don't have winter in L.A.,therefore we

have some ridiculous douchebagsthat are not aware of nature.

I think it's a important

to hit a little black iceevery now and then in your life.

To like, "Whoa,nothing makes sense."

It's important

to shovel [bleep]ing snow;it's important.

In L.A., the worst thingwe have to do is press a button.

Oh, my God,it's so hot.


I grew up in Boston.

A little too cold,but lessons to be learned.

Like, I was deliveringnewspapers

for one of my jobs,

and every morningI used to get up.

I worked 365 days a year,and I saw some shit.

And I'll neverforget this one dude.

I was 19 years old.

I was driving this car.

It was snowy as [bleep],

and this dude lost controlof his car,

and he's slidingthrough the intersection,

and in the middle of the slide,he took a sip of coffee.

Straightened the ass endof his car out,

and got up on his merry way.

He didn't [bleep]ing pull over,and call his psychiatrist,

and run to the pharmacist,throw back a bottle of pills.

He [bleep]ing dealt with itlike a man,

like a man who shovels snowthat is not scared!

You can't get too cold though.

This is as coldas you should get.

You shouldn't get too crazy.

I've been to Edmonton,

Alberta, Canada--nice folksup there, really cool people--

but it gets ridiculously cold.

Whenever I go to Canada,I always go, "How cold does

it get up here?"

The guy goes, "50 below 0."

Is that Fahrenheit or Celsius?

He goes, "Doesn't matter."

What the [bleep], man.

This is not the best spotto stop. You should keep going.

You should pack up your[bleep]ing teepee

and hit the road, son.

This is a ridiculous placeto be.

Do you know about Colorado?
