A city in central New Brunswick, Canada.
Known as the Hub City, mainly because it acts as a convergence point for all the summer travellers on their way somewhere else.
Most people who pass through Moncton are on their way to or from Halifax to the East, the USA to the south, or Montreal and Toronto to the West.
Every year from late June to early September each and every Monctonian must boil their water for 15 minutes before letting it cool down to an agreeable temperature for consumption. As you can imagine, 80 000 people each boiling a pot of water for their 8 AM coffee creates a miserable amount of fog. In 1999 it was so thick that the airport had to be shutdown for one month. 8 000 carrier pigeons had to be laid off. Luckily, at about the same time KFC was experiencing a chicken shortage so they were able to make use of the newly unemployed foul.
During the summer months it is customary for all singles in the city to try to out-do one another in an effort to attract mates for the upcoming winter season. Unlike peacocks with their magnificent plumage, Monctonians prefer to dress more frugally in the most Spartan of light grays and tans. The look is far from flattering on either sex and may actually cause Spontaneous Revirginification.
