In case of emergency, call…

November 28th, 2014 · 39 comments

Laura in Victoria noticed this unofficially annotated official notice while studying late one night at the UVic Campus. Says Laura: “Given that it’s posted in a building crammed with tired university students, the original notewriter probably have been able to predict what would happen next.”

And exercise some maturity by not writing "Batman" or "Ghostbusters" or any other alternate to the emergency organizations provided. Thank you.

And what happened next was…BUTTS.

    It’s all fun and games until a Ghostbuster ends up standing around outside a dormitory full of students, helplessly watching it burn to the ground.

      I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. BUTTS!

    “BUTTS” must be a term used in Canada that means something? I don’t really ‘get it’.

      Apparently this poster was posted within 2km of my house and I still don’t know what BUTTS stands for!

      My best guess is that it’s a fan of Questionable Content… the author randomly interjects “BUTTS” or some non sequitur with the subject of “butts” every now and again on Twitter.

    Boston Officers Operations Brigade Service?

    Well maybe they’re better in a crisis, but they don’t operate in British Columbia.

      No she can’t. There is (or should be) a PassiveAgressiveNotes.com dating site for such licentiousness.

    After pondering this for awhile I’ve decided BUTTS stands for Big Ugly Tattooed Taekwondo Studs. For those times when you need someone to beat the crap out of someone else.

      Ugly and a stud? What, he’s got a horse schlong and a horse face?

      Just cause a guy is ugly doesn’t mean he can’t be awesome in bed.

      Joke time!

      A guy enters a bar and a few minutes later the ugliest man he has ever seen enters. The man sits down at the bar so his back is to the first guy. About ten minutes pass and the ugly guy leaves the bar with two of the most beautiful women in the place.

      The first man says to the bartender, “What gives? How’d he get not one but two beautiful women so quickly? Is he rich?”

      “I have no idea.” The bartender says. “This happens all the time, he comes in, orders a beer, and starts licking his eyebrows.”

    Well, I’m from Minnesota … “butts” are either cigarette butts, parts of beef, or a person’s rear-end. A noun, not adjective. “Butt”, I guess it’s funny if you’re from Canada.

      Nonsense. Butts is obviously a reference to Seymour Butts, a patron of Moe’s Tavern. Butts is the man you call in an emergency to save your butt.

    I am confused by several others’ confusion over this… The first addition asks others to exercise maturity. Then someone chose to demonstrate their IMmaturity by writing BUTTS, as in rear ends, because butts are supposed to stop being funny after you’re not 12 anymore. Seems pretty clear to me.

      When you explain it like that it’s just not as funny.

      Oops, sorry Elf. Quick! Think of butts so you can be amused again!

      If you are an adult and claim to not find butts funny, you are lying to yourself and the rest of the world.

      Agreed. That’s why I said butts are SUPPOSED to stop being funny, not that they actually do.

    I guess it’s because I spend all day with kids, but I saw the hilarity of BUTTS immediately. Helps that we read The Tushie Book for story time.
