Hot Slut Of The Day!

March 22, 2014 / Posted by:

Sandy McTire, the hot Scottish pepaw found on Canada’s second currency, Canadian Tire Money! Michael K asked me to talk about today’s Hot Slut because, as you might have guessed by all the times I write shit like favourite or cheques or sorry, I am a Canadian person, which means I am Dlisted’s resident expert for all things maple and Molson.

If you’ve ever accidentally dropped something in the car of a Canadian person and went rooting around under your seat, you’ve probably found Canadian Tire money. Canadian Tire is a hardware/automotive/sports store with like, a billion locations all across Canada, and they have their own money that you can use like real money in their stores. When you buy something at Canadian Tire, they give you Canadian Tire money. If that isn’t the most Canadian thing, I don’t know what is.

Anyway, since they were trying to be authentic, they made the bills look and feel like real money. They also put a “president” on it too, and that president is a Scotsman named Sandy McTire. But why Scottish? Well, here’s where things get a bit not-right. A lot of blue-collar working types in 1950s Canada were Scottish, and there was also an awful stereotype that Scottish people were penny-pinching cheapskates. So someone thought it would be a great idea to make the mascot of free fake coupon money a cheap Scottsman. And that stereotype is 100% wrong, because I worked at Canadian Tire for 5 years and it was people of every background who would hold up the line to dig around in their pockets for decades to use a $0.05 coupon.

And fun fact! Sandy McTire wasn’t always on the Canadian Tire bills. The original bills had a grown man tire running away with a little boy coin, but that looked like some NAMBLA shit, so they were quickly replaced with the handsome moustachioed gent in a sassy scarf you see above.
