This is a little different of a piece – some might even say it’s a little over the edge. Heck, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! So, I will say – this is not for the soft-hearted or easily-offended… or for the faint at heart and most definitely not for the Ken’s and Karen’s of the world. You’ve been warned – there is some offensive language, and by some – I mean a lot. So if this isn’t for you then I suggest you pitter patter and mosey on the fuck out of this article! Kick rocks, go on figure it out.
Letter Kenny Problems: Hockey Players
Letterkenny is a Canadian-made sitcom created by Jared Keeso (the lead star, Wayne) and developed and written by both Keeso and Jacob Tierney. Originally, the show began as a YouTube series titled Letterkenny Problems. By March 2015 – Crave picked it up to be featured on their service. In February of 2016 – the show debuted and there was no looking back. It follows the residents of Letterkenny, a small Ontario community based on Jared Keeso’s actual hometown of Listowel, Ontario. In all honesty, it’s fucking funny as hell and as offensive as some may find it – all the conversations in this show are raw and very relatable to small-town guy talk.
