Letterkenny

Letterkenny

We’re super-big fans of the smalltown comedy Letterkenny here at the Risky Fuel household.

Not only do we marvel at the note-perfect characters — the simple-minded jocks, the methed out skids, the shirt-tucked farm boys — but we also marvel at the note-perfect smalltown fight culture.

Sarah wrote about why it’s so great in a piece for Fightland.

One of the favourite story devices of Team Risky Fuel is to get actual experts in something to analyze the work of dilettantes and tourists in that field.

In the most recent case, Sarah assembled a team of savvy literary types to look at the sophistication level of the trash talk spouted by pro fighter Nate Diaz.

The results were… illuminating.
