Oar Knot Butte, Manitoba.
Oar Knot Butte is located in mid-sentence. It began as a literary community far inland on
Lake Whine-a-peg around what once was Hecla Island. So many of the transplanted Icelandic People used to begin their
sentences with "I don't know if you know this or not, but..."
These conversational Gooligans began to be known for their 'or not, buts' so
the beleaguered local Gimlinear people decided to give them a place of their own. Thus began Oar Knot Butte.
These Icelandic Descendants have been interrupting conversations and platitudes ever since with their supercilious attitude
that they know better in all matters.
