So, you’re watching “Letterkenny” with your pals the other day…and you realize that this show is full of relatable content even if you’ve never lived in a small Canadian town. Although, small town folk everywhere find the adventures of the “Letterkenny” bunch to be grounded in truth, which is…unfortunate.
As someone who grew up in a small town comparable to Letterkenny in many ways, I’ve compiled ten of the most relatable quotes from season one. So, pitter patter, let’s get at ‘er!
Disclaimer: This article contains mature content and strong language.
10. “You ever hoover schneef off a sleeping cow’s spine?” “I’ve hoovered schneef off an awake cow’s teet.”
To be fai-uhhhh…this sounds like something you’d hear two high school kids saying trying to one up each other — even if they have never, in fact, hoovered schneef. But then again, I think all small town peeps can say they know at least one or two farm hands/country boys who have probably had a similar exchange. It’s just unique to That Type.
9. “It’s like algebra…why you gotta put numbers and letters together? Why can’t you just go fuck yourself?”
Small town or not, this quote brings back middle school algebra nostalgia. A.K.A. the pain and suffering we all knew we were going through.
8. “Oh I’m stomping the brakes, put that idea right through the fucking windshield.”
You know those moments when you just can’t stand someone’s opinion but you don’t want to blatantly yell in their face? Of course you do. And now you have the perfect phrase to get your point across loud and clear. #relatable
7. “You guys every hear anything about that guy fucking an ostrich?”
“No, The Ginger fucked and ostrich.”
Small town folk know the power of a rumor because half the time those rumors turn to legends. And The Ginger fucking an ostrich is one such rumor. As a running gag, it really shows that small town talk gets around fast. And as a comedic bit, it forces similar rumors to surface from the dark depths of our minds which we tried oh-so-hard to repress.
6.“You naturally care for a companionship, but I guess there’s a lot worse things than playing a little one man couch hockey in the dark.”
Companionship? Who? I don’t know her.
If you didn’t feel even mildly attacked by this statement…what kind of perfect, anxiety-free life are you living? Can you share your secrets?
5.“You wish there was a Pied Piper for possums, but there isn’t, so you’re just gonna have to keep picking ‘em off with a .22. Buckle up ‘cause they’re fuckin’ ugly…of course, that’s not to say I have it all my damn self.”
Holla holla at those kids who were picked on in school and ultimately ended up with self-esteem issues which they deflect with self-deprecating humor! Your self esteem may be in the shitter, but rest assured that you are “possum” nonetheless.
4. “Fuck Lemony Snicket, what a serious of unfortunate events you fuckin been through you ugly fuck.”
“Boulevard of Broken Dreams!”
Look, Riley and Jonesy don’t often dish out sick burns like the other guys do. This one, though, took a wave of middle school nostalgia and fucking slammed Stewart to the metaphorical ground. And then it slapped me across the face with memories about those goth kids who wore the same MCR or Green Day shirt too many days in a row to be healthy. And you know exactly the kids I’m talking about.
3. “Pitter patter, let’s get at ‘er.”
Doesn’t every small town have a phrase that resembles this? They all have the same message that is universally understood. They’re also something you don’t think about until you see a show like “Letterkenny” that highlight them as a frequently used phrase. Plus, this is undoubtedly the most popular phrase on the show.
2. “Your sister’s hot, Wayne! There I said it! I said it! I regret nothing! I regret nothing!”
“…I’m too fat to run.”
That moment when your friends finally get you to admit who you’re sweet on and you start sweating like a whore in church. You want to run in fear of judgement and shame… and maybe you can do that, but the rest of us just gotta deal with that rosey-cheeked moment.
1. “Well, there’s nothing better than a fart. Except kids falling off bikes, maybe. Fuck, I could watch kids fall off bikes all day, I don’t give a shit about your kids.”
Even if you have kids…seeing a kid fall of a bike is still fucking hilarious. There’s just nothing like the look of sheer panic on a kid’s face followed by a pout turned to their parent. Fart jokes are great, but a toddler taking a tumble off a trike is a level of hilarity that can’t be rivaled.
