I'll Quebecking You

Holla, peeps, I be back in blogtown...

Sadly, I have a midterm tomorrow for which I have yet to start studying, so I will refrain from discussing my trip to Vancouver, for now, except to transcribe this conversation I heard on the radio on the way to the airport this morning. Bear in mind the entire exchange was carried out in cheerful, hyperbolic radio presenter voice:

DJ One: Everyone is touched by cancer.
DJ Two: Yes, everybody has to deal with cancer at some point in their lives. Who doesn't know someone who's had a friend or family member with cancer?
DJ One: Two of my immediate family members are dealing with cancer.
DJ Two: It's very prevalent. How many people get cancer now? Is it one in three?
DJ One: One in three, yeah, I think so. You're in a room with four people, one of them is going to get cancer.
DJ Two: I'm going to get cancer. I can feel it.

Remarkably, Mournful Morning with 'Big' Jake and 'Sunshine' Sally remains one of Vancouver's most popular radio shows among commuters.

"I'll Quebecking you..."

I'll keep backing you?

I'll quit baking you?

Ha-ha, I broke Chris's brain!

It was a reference to my previous post, pre-British Columbia, which was titled 'I'll BCing You'. Upon returning to Quebec, the obvious choice was 'I'll Quebecking You'— no pun intended.
