An old Saskatchewanian expression (tho I doubt it's used by anyone but oldtimers now) that just came to mind: "Give 'er snoose, Bruce, the goose is loose." (The second line is optional—my dad only used the first half.) Meaning, make an effort, pal, this is important.
Thanks for the translation.

I've come across Maine slang in the past and been totally baffled. I love that shit, tho—the weird crap that is normalized when you're from a place but seems to outsiders like you must live on a toxic waste dump that's fried your brain.
