Fort Simmer,

Northwest Territories.

Been here

since my accident.

Not much to do if you're not

into booze or sports., f*ck the West 40,

it's shit, man...

Passing through Alberta,

I know this place

Oh, yeah?

Right on!

Yeah, but we need

a ride.

Well, we can borrow

my aunt's car.

It's just going to break down

before we leave the town...

Hey, shut up!

Just yesterday I took it

down to the dump

at 120 clicks...

Know what, man?

I think I'm just gonna go.

Don't be cheap.


F*ck you... I'm learning!

Okay? I'm learning...

Yo, what up!

How you doin', man?

Where you been, man?

Werewolf Larry, is that you?


Are you gonna fight me this time?

Or you gonna run away like a little bitch?

Don't let me catch you watching us, animal!

Or I'll skin you!

Juliet Hope

has the eyes of an angel...

She could suck a man dry

with those eyes...

After the nuclear war

when we all turn cannibal

and start

to eat one another...

She won't be involved.

Her mouth would not

eat dead things.

My mother's tearduct was

destroyed by my father

years ago and it stopped

working forever.

We have a new face

with us today - Johnny Beck.

You look familiar,

Mr. Beck.

Yeah, Mr Harrister.

I'm that guy who passed out on your lawn.

So, the model that we have... and demand.

...Around the mid-1800's.

The beavery trade... prevalent.

F*ck, man...

Economics can only exist

when we create scarcity...

Darcy McManus...

He has a chunky ass

and a moose cock.

We both grew up in the same hell hole

across from my lake.

He's had it in for me

ever since he moved here.

He holds my secrets

under his fingernails.

Mr. Beck...

I'm listening...

Is there any way I can accomodate you

in making this a more enjoyable experience.

As a matter of fact,

Mr. Harrister,

yes, there is.

Ah, and what might that be?


We get to stare at this ugly blackboard,

and you get to face the sun.

I want a piece of that.

I say, we rearrange

our arrangement of these desks,

and switch our bodies the other

way, so we can face the sun.

You'd get some sunshine,

warming up your backside,

everybody will be happy.

Even you, Mr. Harrister.

So, who's with me, class?

What do you think?

Come on, Mr. H...

It's a good idea.

It really is...

Get out!!!

You're a tough man, babyfingers.

...we poked

a hole in it,

so the water would come out slowly,

people were like,

what the f*ck...

Yo, man, my name's Sammy,

but my boys call me

Mustache Sammy.

Been growing this fucker since

I went swimming nut to nut.

Know what I'm sayin'?

Most guys

love French class

because of Mademoiselle's

Simone's French titties.

They're so perky.

But I have

my own reasons.

It's coming from upstairs.

Mr. Harrister's class.



Do you know who sits here?




What's up, faggot?

I seen your mom passed out in a ditch.

Fucked her for fifteen bucks.

You like burning shit, buddy?

That's some original shit, Darby.

It's Darcy, asshole.

Mr. Beck...

Darcy, give me

some room...


Tomorrow morning,



What tribe are you?




Dogrib, huh?

This guy Jed, told me that our tribe

came from this woman that

gave birth to six puppies.

That's really something.

You comin'?

Hey, that Mr. Harrister,

what a Leonard.

Leonard who?

Not a who, a what.

You mean babyfingers?


The f*ck's a leonard?


A monge...

a face-melt.

You know, a stick.


An asshole.


You sure are daring, man.

You're only beautiful once.

Holy shit!

Damn ravens.

Can you give me a hand?
